i wanted to put my wheels on from my valver (mam mt1) but the guy i got the car off didnt have the lock nut(s) .There were 3 different types on the car! Drove down to see my mate at rsr tyres.

my charger oil feed was leaking so i ordered up a new one with the washers

My old lights were looking a little tired so i replaced them with inpros all round - i can now see at night lol. Nicked the rieger grill off the valver and sprayed it to match. Also gave the car a good polish also.

Looking through the history i saw that the charger had been rebuilt by jabbasport but it didnt say when. I have heard things about jabba s i decided to get the charger rebuilt by jmr. Whilst it was out i cleaned up the engine a bit and painted the block and a few other bits

Made up a boost return blank and this got the paint treatment

The old silencer box broke when i removed the charger so i sourced another outlet, painted that too! Got a silicone pipe and joiner to link it up to the original pipework

ISV cleaned up and a breather filter fitted

Got my charger back - apparently jabba didnt do a very good job rebuilding it. Now its a stage 4

Managed to get me a 1.8t engine from a seat cupra s, so im pretty chuffed just need to source a few other bits before that can go in. Its done aroun 35k miles

Cool

Need to get new gaskets and seals throughout as the previous owner took items off to paint but never put anything back after Mad

Also going to change the water pump for one with a metal impeller as ive heard some horror stories about the plastic ones. May aswell do the cambelt and tensioner when i do that

i thought i'd start striping some bits off to clean up and paint

took the alternator/power steering bracket off, a pulley, the inlet manifold an the cam cover off. here they are

spent ages sanding down the brackets and they were degreased and etch primed

used paint stripper on the cam cover, really wierd watching the paint bubble up Very Happy

[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

one of it degreased

[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

And ready for paint!

35k? Bloody hell, low mileage then! I guess it's the 180bhp engine then? What are your plans with the management? Are you going to use the standard ECU or are you using a QPeng kit? What type of paint have you used on the engine bits?

its a 150 bhp one (aum engine code) but it has the ko3s turbo rather than the ko3 in other 150 bhp engines.Planning on using the qpeng kit so i should have about 230 bhp to play with (more than enough i reckon on a fwd car)

As for paint, etch primer is the dogs! gives a really good base for the top coat to bond to. The inlet was done with silver hammerite and the white parts were done with plasticote

I guess you are getting the kit that comes with the downpipe as well? One of my mates on here has the same kit in his Corrado. He loves it!

Will the two paints be OK with the heat from the block and bay?

yea, gunnna get the diy kit though and wire on the connectors myself, their downpipes look very good quality.

Paints will be ok, its the same paint ive used on the g60 engine (believe me that gets hot!) Really easy to clean too

oil cooler
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

lower cambelt cover
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

upper cambelt cover
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

gathered a few more bits, the plan is to get as many parts i need before even thinking of taking the current engine out.

Got a nice selection of stainless nuts, bolts and washers to replace the old toot

[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

New inlet,throttle body and oil filter housing gaskets and dipstick tube

[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

Genuine timing belt kit

[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

new water pump, (doesnt look it but the impellor is metal - Thanks to reuben at tuning works for sourcing that!)

[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

5 rolls of self amalgamating tape to sort my entire car loom out ( in good time!)

[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

got the gearbox its an o2j (enj) so i think thats a golf mk4 gti box, been slowly cleaning that

[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

Ive also been dismantling my red corrado ready for the engine to be sold so i had the driveshafts out back with the gearbox.Ive heard that most of the o2j boxes have 108mm driveshaft flanges so i was worried id have to source a set of 100mm flanges to match my shafts, however i took the driveshaft i got off the 16v and it fitted perfect to the o2j gearbox.... what a touch! im happy.

heres a pic

I thought all Ko3s where 180bhp. My boss's leon cupra is 180bhp with that turbo and his cupra R has the ko4 225bhp.

The wiring is pretty easy to do yourself. i got my mates 20vt running by only fitting 5 wires of the 20v loom!

So you wiring the bugger up yourself then? Does the MBE ECU have the ability to be remapped at home?

yea gunna be doing all the wiring, im quite confident with that. It can be remapped at home but you need the interface box which is over £200 so ill be leaving that for a while!

Was just checking through the bits i have and it appears they have forgotten to give me the map sensor! Have emailed ben @ qpeng to let him know and hopefully they can get one to me

£200? Bloody hell Sad

Wiring isn't too bad really, as long as you've got the right gear to do it, and the right wire it's fairly straight forward Smile

It's funny, I went for a uni placement interview at MBE, down in Cirencester. It's only like a 5 man team that work there

A lot of them are like that! Emerald and DTA are only a 2 or 3 people outfit too!
That's why they lack some of the features of the big players like Bosch, who have 1000s of staff and limitless budgets!

no worries, got an email back from ben, gunna send me out the map sensor. On a bad note, the mk3 throttle body i got cant be used, i have to use the 8 pin version from 20vt. Apparently the resistances vary quite a bit on the mk3 versions so the ecu isnt mapped for that to cut costs. So gunna need to source a mk4 tb and sell the mk3 one (which was pretty damn clean!)
