Forget about:
- GTX and go for Borg Warner EFR straight away.
- crappy Siemens injectors and go for Bosch
- old school Proalloy and buy Treadstone Performance + custom pipes
- Walbro 255 and buy AEM 340lph if you want to keep it in-tank
- OEM ECU and buy MaxxECU with adapter + proper tune

FCSS and my lads business APS are running a dyno day/car meet in Evesham on Saturday 6th May, it's being set up as a social meet with access to take part in dyno runs if you wish, costs will be £50.00 for 3x runs so if you'd like to join us and partake for an up-to-date power run please add your name, results will be added to each name after the day.

My problem is what do I take, my LE, Busso GT, the V10 Toerag for shits and giggles or the S5 hehe

1. CC (Vehicle to be confirmed)

Plan for next the next at night is to continue with caliper refurbishment, and then at the weekend I have some surface corrosion on a few places around the underbody that I plan to clean up, apply rust treatment then stone chip the underside of the car

Here you go

Yes the old larger bushes were knackered, the trailing arm bearings looked ok, but I’ve changed them to save do the job again

It’s been nearly a year of ownership.

Total cost of ownership so far..

Two new tyres (just went for the cheapest as Pirelli were £200 each).
New rear brake pads
Full service

So cost this year has been £500 which is actually less than the 1.9 golf! Failed its MOT on a side light (£1).

MPG is about 35-40mph. Maybe 25mpg around town.

Ok Hello, a short update.

I’ve been disassembling most of the front of the car; suspension and engine bay. The purpose of this is: servicing the engine, addressing som surface rust and replacing parts that generally wear out. I’m about to address the differential output seals, and while the engine is completely disconnected, I’ll do the timing belt/wp. That’s about as deep I’m gonna go.

I got most parts from autodoc, but the following items were hard to find: clutch hose, radiator, motor mounts, upper radiator hose, coolant reservoir. I’ve finally got a lead on most of the parts, and loads of brackets and fittings off to be sand blasted. The black stuff is going to be powder coated, and the shiny stuff will be yellow plated.

I hope I’ll be turning the ratchet the other way around soon, and start installing shiny bits. Transitioning from the destructive phase to the constructive.

Photo: the only welding required that I’ve found so far

This event is on again in 2023 but this time on Easter Monday (Paasmaandag) 10 April instead of Whitsun (Pinkstermaandag) and is again being held at Zandvoort circuit rather than at Assen (boo! frown )

Details at

Not to be confused with the new upstart Viva Italia on Sun 4 June at Sywell Aerodrome (Northants)

I may not have a Coupe ready by then, so may attend in the 124 Spider

The body shop that repaired a bumper for me, used a plastic welding method. From what they explained it must have been something like this with plastic welding rods & special filler.

This was impressive but the most impressive thing they did was paint a flexible rubber boot spoiler.
Still struggle to believe how that worked, flexible spoiler but the paint never cracked or splintered.
