    Sorry, only after seeing your message! Things are holding up perfectly. While I dont launch it from a standstill, I regularily plant the boot coming out of low speed corners and it just goes. I think I’ll keep incrementally increasing the power to see what the limit is! I have a 210bhp map for the ecu on my laptop, I think I’ll throw that on next and see if thats enough!

    I still own this car. I have recently finished a lot of work and put it back out on the road.

    The following work has been done:

    new brakes all around.
    New shocks and springs all around.
    Upgraded front engine mounts.
    New wishbones, arb bushes, drop links up front.
    rear subframe removed, everything painted, polybushed and refitted.
    Propshaft rebuilt.
    New timing belt, engine service.
    Revised boost pipes in engine bay.
    Reflashed AUM ecu with AUQ map, so now 180bhp.

    I have a rallye gearbox that I bought off Chris, that I intend on fitting at some stage next year.

    A nice selection! I am after the complete gearbox/transfer box combo and cables listed in the advert. Am I right in saying you are based in NL? I am based in Ireland. If the courier cost wasn’t astronomical then I’d be very interesting in going ahead.

    Hey Chris,

    this is an old thread, but I’m wondering, did you sell this in the end? I am interested in upgrading to an 02c in my Jetta.

    Thanks

    Over four years later and I popped back in to read my old build thread. I still have this car, although it is not being driven at the moment.

    I’m looking forward to getting back behind the wheel of it. I have loads of new parts to fit, wishbones, shocks, a brake caliper, propshaft bearings etc!

    further update, the issue seems to be with posts that have images in them. When I post without trying to embed an image then it posts fine, with an embedded image it wont show the post. I posted an update to my thread in members cars and it showed fine. However when I edited it and added the image it has deleted the post!

    Very cool, so that would be have been made for a rally prepared golf rallye? I wonder how different it is inside? Could the diff have limited slip?

    That should make for a very noticeable improvement!

    Good work, seems like it was a good thing you stripped it all down. Would the most cost effective not be to get the subframe blasted, weld up where needed, primer/satin black and pump the water trap areas full of cavity wax?
