Thread: Scirocco

  1. #1



    Just signed up so thought I'd pop a few details of my car to date up.

    Got her in January 2009 and these are a few pictures of the things done so far:-

    When I first picked her up:-

    Then after much uming and ahing over which springs to go for I decided on the Eibach springs for lowering my 1.4.

    The springs were supplied and fitted by Midland VW who were also kind enough to let me take a few pictures:-

    Wonder how much these will cost when they eventually need replacing?

    A comparison of the stock rear spring and the Eibach rear spring

    Having the alignment checked after fitting

    And a couple of before and after shots

    In December I had my car REVO'd - the difference is amazing over stock

    After a while I took my car to be dyno'd at Midland VW. The car was run 3 times on the REVO 98 setting and produced a highest of 208.6hp and 229.3lbft and was also run once on the REVO stock setting where it produced 173.3hp and 188.4lbft.

    Changed the gear knob for a golf ball one (I know some people wont like this as it's not a golf but I liked the feel of it more than the stock knob and I also liked the fact it was a little higher than the stock knob)

    I also fitted the metal pedal set and a metal footrest cover:-

    Quick picture of a little interior 'fun' mod I did.

    A picture of the prototype ITG 1.4 intake kit fitted to my car at GTi Inters 2010:-

    Graphs for the prototype ITG induction kit:-

    Pictures of the final production version of the ITG intake:-

    Excuse the pictures and the state of the car's interior!

    Recently I've had the wheels refurbished in matt black, a full alignment and set up session done and a new exhaust. Will get some details of these up shortly.
