Matty's Golf mk4 R32 Turbo 4 motion

Recommended Posts

Went to pay Jamie a visit at Unitsixteeenautomotive the other day.

First Is the interior stripped. A leaking water fitting on my chargecooler has made the boot floor a little rusty .

You always say if I need a lift give you a shout as your not far away 😁 you got a crane I can borrow and a stand I could buy ? and a spare set of eyes just to make sure I’m not missing anything while pulling engine and box of mine it’s getting ready for work 😁👌🏼

Mint I’ll get one picked up and then will pester you for the crane one more thing do you have the clearance specs for the bottom end and what bearings would you recommend ? I was dreaming of silly power but think 600-650 is where the wallet is at lmfao

I would not worry about main bearing clearance in relation to power. Standard bearings and specs will be fine.

I agree the painter looks very good, almost looks like he can skip polishing.

 

I'm amazed out how much tire you got to fit as well.

I am too. With the 10” wide wheels I have there was no chance but on the 9”s they just sneak in.

Might have to fix the ride height a little. Or maybe it just looks high because of the trolleys

Most of the interior back in looks like a car again

Definitely can’t wait to get back on the dyno.

Don’t think I will be aiming for maximum power on the next session as I want to have some seat time before I risk it all going for big numbers.

That’s fair enough! I haven’t been on this site for a couple years and am gob smacked to see someone going for a 1000 hp vr6... amazing :) 

is this going to be a full track car then? 

My Vrt project is still ongoing, trying to fit a chargecooler in the standard vr6 manifold which is bit tricky but I’m persevering, only aiming for 400 hp though!

Car is now MOT’d, taxed & insured so fully street legal. Not really practical for pooping to the shops etc... but will be used on the road and the track.

Standard inlet?

When I turbo’d my first 12v that was the first thing to go. People get into all sorts of debates about runner length but the hubrennersporttechnic that I fitted made more power NA before the turbo was fitted than the original.

I would save your self a lot of plumbing and get a cheap Ebay short runner.

To say I’m happy with the finish is an understatement. When I picked the colour asked on the fact the Skyline R34 GTR is a dream car of mine I never imagined it would look so good on the golf.

Got any videos yet?


Went out in the car this weekend but was too excited for videos .

Car was misfiring and after checking all the coils we came to the conclusion it must be the injectors.

After pulling the injectors 2 were totally blocked.

Some cleaning fluid and some compressed air from the local Tesco garage and the blockage was clear.
