  1. brad mole's mk1 golf project

    Sorry theres been no progress for a LONG time, nothing has happened with the car in terms of progress, quite the opposite, parts got broken while moving the car around and i stole bits for other cars so its in a bit of a state. Ive had the car stored for ages until i bought a house and built a garage so eventually got that done and got the car home, but ive just been so busy on the house and had no time for the car, so its just been sat there. but now the house is taking shape i get to move back onto the car when i have spare time (which isnt very often)
  2. Mk1 GTI 16v turbo....

    thanks for the detailed reply bud well i did buy a load of turbo bits for mine with the intention of doing that, but then i lost interest in the car and didnt have time or money to continue really, and the car wasnt even running, but now ive got it in the garage getting looked at and im wondering if its worth looking into the turbo idea again as it wont be me whose doing it, i just need to know what sort of cost its gonna be and how many bits im missing lol, but seems i need alot more than i have (which i guessed would be the case)

    very nice mate, where did you get the new inlet from, it looks amazing! and also do you have all the bits required for the turbo conversion? just wondering if you knew exactly how many extra bits are needed out of curiousity?

    i think it could be the throttle body/manifold, i might get hold of another one and try that on then see how it goes from there as my inlet manifold has a nacked thread so the throttle body might be leaking air i dont know?

    nope still not running, ive not done anything more to it since u were round a year or so ago haha. aye i got them off DNE, only wanted them for the tyres really so i can put them on my split rims

    i cant actually remember exactly where i was stuck now, as ive not touched the car in ages, ive just been storing it and trying not to think about it for now as i have no where to keep it at the minute anyways. from what i remember i had issues with the radiator leaking water from the pipes and boiling over the cap, and overheating. then as well as that the car was idling fine but when i went to drive it there was barely any power at all, ive got a feeling theres an ait leak somewhere, possibly the throttle body as one of the bolts that holds it to the inlet manifold is rounded and just spins, i wonder if that could cause such a lack of power? heres a pic of my wheel choices at the minute as an excuse for an update wheels by bradmole, on Flickr

  13. polo 6n 1.0 misfire on idle

    vacuum lines all seem ok, looks like this is gonna take a while to figure out, any more suggestions?

  15. polo 6n 1.0 misfire on idle

    Hi, ive recently bought a 6n polo 1.0, since i got it its had a misfire when idling, it drives fine but just when sitting on tickover its lumpy, its just as if its about to stall with the revs spluttering up and down, i just find it strange how it drives spot on except for this. ive googled it and found alot of suggestions but just thought someone may be able to narrow down the problems for me to save spending lots of time and money getting it looked at, ive tried cleaning the throttle body but its still the same, dizzy connections all seem ok too thanks
