My heavily but subtly modded MK3 16v GTI
« on: 13 June 2017, 00:22 »
Hi peoples, here's my heavily but not 'in your face' modded GTI. Spec is as follows:

Engine

•   Polished, ported, and skimmed head
•   Newman fast road cams
•   Emerald custom mapped ECU
•   4 bar fuel pressure regulator
•   Pipercross Viper cold-air intake kit
•   All engine work by ‘Penguin Motors Ltd’

Other

•   Jetex full stainless exhaust including sports cat
•   Stainless 4 branch manifold
•   Oversize aluminium race radiator
•   Eibach Pro Street S coil-overs
•   Eibach anti-roll bar kit
•   Eibach wheel spacers
•   MTEC drilled and grooved discs with ‘Yellow Stuff’ pads
•   Stainless braided brake hoses throughout
•   Stainless fuel tank straps
•   Rust proofed by ‘Rustbuster Ltd’

Interior

•   Full Highline black leather interior
•   Nardi Gara steering wheel
•   Detail by ‘Spider Vehicle Enhancement’


From different dyno runs she puts out over 180 BHP, is rust-free, original paint, and my daily driver.

Hi, 

If your still on here as this is an old post what wheels are they?  What size?   Is it lowered? 

Looks great.  Very nice.

My new GF gives me no problems!  Unlike ALL of the rest!!  She's only 21, black and extremely sexy. Sure she may have a slight drinking problem but nothing is perfect right?   Her name is Vicky (The VR6) Highline and I am madly in love.
