Cheers Jez- hoping it should be good when complete  :)

You're correct on the turbo- downpipe is a crap fit, and only 60mm, so I'll remake it a touch bigger too  ;)

Mk3 will be trailered next Friday- which means a certain blue mk1 comes back up  ;D

Hmmm, no such thing as better management really- more features yes, but not better really.

Polo PP have about £1k worth of mapping gear, I like digifant so I'm mapping it up, can still have switchable maps and launch control etc, just got to know how to do it  :) Good to know you're trying the K03 first, I'm hoping I like the GT25....  ???

Jez- aye pop up mate, should be looking abit more unit like in the coming months hopefully.

Yeah, DTA has many good features such as second bank injection, sequential injection, wasted spark, traction control, boost in gear etc etc but it's a lot if cash and I'd not use half the features to be honest, be good to see how you get on with it though mate.

yoof your cars great big inspiration for people i think, couple of questions thought, with what turbo setup did u make 200 bhp was it a ko3if it was how can you safley run 21psi of boost?? if it was what manifold where u using? did u run forged pistons and what size block was it ? did u use aquamist? or all of these things trade secrets?? 2 more questions for you these are the main two really, what brakes do you use ? and what suspension set up do you use coilovers?

Hi Mate,

Thanks for the comments- I ran 203bhp with a K03 turbo at 21psi, used a 250kPa map sensor (which we sell in the traders section) and a decent custom map.

I used a rothe manifold and downpipe connected to one of our 63mm systems, the block is overbored to 1341cc and uses Accralite pistons, although I'd use Wossner ones if I was doing it again (lower compression ratio). I also use aquamist.

The engine is nothing special, it's the refinement, calibration and set-up of everything which takes the time, and makes the most out of everything.

I use 256mm brakes with EBC yellowstuff pads, RBF600 Fluid, and standard Golf 16v Brembo discs. I've used various suspension set-ups over the years, combinations of springs rates, cup car dampers and bilstien motorsport items, I'm currently settling on a G40 cup car kit though, with some additions to the track control arms, and custom top mounts, not forgetting a Polo-PP stage 3 subframe :)

Hope this helps,

Cheers

Pete

cheers this has been very helpful i am thinking of going turbo next year i was just wondering if the emtec kit was worth the extra money but im only after around 200bhp so if this is achivable with the cheaper ko3 rothe set up i will probably use that, does the ko3 spool up quicker than the turbo offered with the emtec kit think its a garret t25/28 hybrid (dunno if im right my german isnt that great !) cause i really like having the instant boost of a g charger but dont want to have to keep servicing it , and wanna run higher boost than a bar when i strip the engine out n rebuild it next year.

If your aim is 200bhp then I'd stick with a K03.

Mine has gone a little further than that, partly to promote the business, and partly for my own amusement. The K03 is great for the road, depending on camshaft choice you can have full boost by 2750rpm (over 20psi) which means peak torque is just over 3000rpm at 180lbft+

Although it sounds strange I'd reccomend the Rothe kit over the Emtec, there's a fair amount of chopping and fabrication I've got to do until I'm happy with it to be honest.

Excellent thread mate  ;) I noticed in another section of the forum that your in chelford in cheshire? I live in Macclesfield just down the road. Would love to see your polos in the flesh sometime and maybe also ask your opinion on a few ideas of my own.
Keep up all your good work mate. It's well worth it .
