I've also seen it too and as Gunzi says, it is a VW DSG gearbox. Hats off to him for engineering the solution though

I agree, having your Coupé live mapped totally transforms how the car drives including increasing fuel efficiency, its the finishing touch and worth the remap costs.

Not sure electric windows and mirrors were "extras." crazy

His low and mid values seem about right but agree that the top end prices are a big steep.

Having said that, good low mileage coupes in VGC (and I mean no rust anywhere) are very rare now.

So let's hope those values are realised once day!

Not a bad video and glad to see a 16v featured for a change. thumb

The fuel pressure regulator controls the pressure not the pump so changing to an newer 255L/min won't effect the map.

this is what I'm running with lots of other mods.....running 1.4 and approx 400bhp ........yes I have to agree with Nigel its very entertaining shocked laugh

Good news everyone, the organisers have listed the 13th June 2021 for the postponed 2020 event, fingers crossed nothing gets in the way of this one.

I'll update booking info over the weekend.

Alarm and I.C.E
20/11/2020 07:40
Replaced fob batteries to no avail. Do the batteries in the siren need to be serviceable for the alarm to arm/disarm etc? May have another fiddle but the reset procedure doesn't seem to work will miss remote locking but I guess I could buy a 3rd Party unit for that.

He certainly liked it more than that GTV. I figured as I'd barely driven the coupe myself this year I may as well put it to some use as I do like his youtube channel.

Interestingly he mentioned a flat spot about 4.5K RPM and that's just around where the variable intake valve timing that gives extra ignition advance at low revs switches off, so I assume it was that. Can't say I've ever noticed it myself on this or any other 20vt I've driven but then again I'm not a professional car reviewer, so I think he was just being pretty astute there.

The actual spec is a mystery as I bought it for £700 as a project with absolutely zero service history and about 500 previous owners. A hybrid turbo was mentioned but as it all looks standard it's hard to be sure as some of the other claims made were definitely not accurate. It had a unique custom made one piece exhaust with cat actually in the downpipe, but I had to chop that up by hand and fit a standard downpipe and cat to get through emissions test at last MOT.

Hello, can someone explain to me in detail how the 5 speed gearbox can be strengthened? I read that there is plates which are installed ( upper and lower) to prevet flex. I have read that the early 5 spd. is the strongest gearbox, is that right? Early menaing 93-95 year? Pictures of these plates will help me understand better. Thank you.

That's one work-around, but it's a bit clunky. The client doesn't want it web-hosted (for security reasons), but finding some software that they trust is proving an problem. What they want to do it just click on an embedded link in a plan that points to their server and have the 360 jpeg launch as it would do for a standard jpeg. I think until their IT team catch up with reality they are going to be stuck as webhosted solutions seem to be the only way. Maybe providing some sort of assurance around security of keeping photos on the web is the most solution here. Thanks for your suggests though.

Well, it had to be too good to last!
Now I'm a desk jockey for a green energy company, a 2 mile commute in a 4.4-litre V8 is apparently inappropriate...
If anyone wants the most fabulous-sounding, huge load-carrying, rapid q-car for 3 and a half grand, drop me a PM and I can give chapter and verse.
It's such a hoot, it makes me grin every time I turn the key, but these days I'm just not using it and an impending house move to a smaller house with very limited parking, has overrun my last line of defence!

I'm so out of date with turbo's and sizing now, but if that is meant to be a GT3076 it is massive overkill for 300BHP. I run the GT3076 and that makes 400bhp. Plus I'm on 0.63 housing and not the 0.82 as listed so will have even more lag that CountryCrusiing already mentioned.

If you want 300bhp I'd also look at upgrading the injectors as this are generally good for 280bhp-ish and that is with max duty being run.

Actually, a long time ago, I think someone on the forum said that the Coop was the first car to incorporate/base it's design on, a certain style of art. confused

Thanks fellas, found it! Fibreglass Coupé bits./

Seems they also do a bonnet and even doors shocked

What's the quality of their work like compared with Auto DS?

Thanks for the offer, I will do... when the time comes. I'm currently resisting the urge to buy up all the parts for my project now. As tempting as it sounds to have a big heap of bits to work through, I'm several stages away from bodykits at the moment. Car's still over with FCSS having the rebuild and front end restoration. Cage is next along with seats and harnesses etc.
