Hi everyone, i`m new in Polo Forum, and i want to present my buddy`s car, he don`t have time because of work, so i have permission to present small project.
As topic says:
MK I VW Polo from 79 year
1,3 l PY
G60 fuel pressure regulator
custom water cooler
K&N air filter
tooth belt drive for G60
bigger fuel pump
all seals, o rings etc brand new
custom stainless exhaust
and a lot more tricks for more power
std G40 gearbox with new joints
New black paint
lots of chrome parts
Motorsport rear lights
mk I gti front spoiler
14" RSL Motorsport wheels,
G40 brakes (refurbished), new ATE powerdiscs on front, and new ATE drums on rear, new custom cables,
new brake lines, etc.
GT Cupline kit -60mm
front and rear strut bars and others in weak points.
than we do some work for more place for new engine:
And more cuts:
fat G60 don`t want fit easy:
lots of cutting in front...
And after maintenance, more strut bars between stringers and final painting :
MB intercooler, a bit angular, but does the job:
from this perspective, most often you will see polo
And after first test drive:
That was on 1 stage, boost around 1,2bar, std ecu.
At this time is going stage 2, with ported head, custom intake, external oil cooler, smaller G wheel, new camshaft, new Sachs race clutch, another engine block ( better condition), new piston rings, so polo do some kilometers without boost. In next month will be new ecu, boost around 1,5 bar, and estimated power 200+ hp.
So here we go again with new stuff:
More power- toth belt drive:
Sachs race clutch- to 300Nm:
Bigger oil cooler with mocal thermostat:
And it looks like this, here still without intake manifold:
Brilliant little Polo! Is the G60 charger holding up? I heard they are a weak point on the G40 engine because the little 1,3 revs faster?
Yes, it`s G60 charger, should be good, we have actually smaller G charger wheel so wil be revs much faster than original but still should be safe. Car doesn`t do thousand of kilometers, it`s only for weekend fun. Charger is after maitenance and modifications, so it`s life is much much shorter, but we`ve got another charger in mint condition, so we will see how it will be run, if something goes bad, we take another.
