Hurdy's Leon Cupra 290 Black DSG.
« on: 01 April 2017, 21:17 »
So, after a while away from tuning I decided to purchase a sweet little VAG performance motor.

Welcome to my Leon Cupra 290 Black MK3 DSG in Dynamic Grey.....





First mod went on straight away...... :evil:



Car goes in for some custom tuning at Statller, so it will be 380bhp+ and similar torque. :cool:

Nice car Hurdy. What colour is that? Is it Dynamic Grey?

I was just about to say I wasn't too keen on the standard diamond cut wheels, and the I saw you'd swapped them for a set of really nice Oz ultraleggeras; much better.

Yep, Dynamic Grey. Best colour option as it is unique to the Cupra.  :cool:

I look forward to seeing how this develops; I enjoyed reading about your 6r Polo GTI and mk6 Golf R mods  :smiley:

When i looked at this the other day i was going to say i dont like the wheels but as i remeber the last golf and polo i pressumed theyd be swapped out pretty quickly.
I look forward to where this is going to go

Went to Santa Pod on Sunday for GTI Spring Festival. Gorgeous day and managed to achieve Pod face.  :grin:
 Stage 1 e-tuners ECU and DSG maps with just an intake and did 12.83@113.91mph.
Best terminal of 115.56.
Better than I ever did on my ED30 at Stage 2+ with all the suspension bits added, stripped out and semi-slicks onboard!
To say I'm impressed is an understatement!
