      Hudy: And what brakes, suspension, cooling...? Or this parts will stay from 1.2HTP?

      Nice job , its a shame the Fabia vRS didnt come with the 1.8T engine from the factory , it can be done as the Polo GTI and Ibiza Cupra have both had it fitted , inter brand politics probably kept it out of the Fabia.

      Need to make spacers (1,5-2mm) and it will be ok.

      And better quality here

      I am writing to ask some informations about your nice 1.8T Fabia.
      I have a friend who did the sam project with a fabia combi 1.4 sportline.
      The engine is from an audi TT (AJQ) and it is runing in Limp Mode write now, because he has some sensor problems.
      But it's not a big problem it will be solved in a few days.
      There are other problems from wich we have no idea.
      So the ABS, ASR and the air conditioning systems doesn't work.So it would be grateful if you could help us about these problems.What to do, buy or what to look for. . .
      Also I am interested in your brake set. What disc do you runing on, and what should we buy for a brake kit something like yours .
      Please help us if you can:
      Your sincenerly:
