My mk5 tdi (money pit) now with accuair e-level... NOW FOR SALE!!
« on: September 05, 2013, 11:43:43 am »
As I've been on here for a while I think it's about time I done a thread.
This is my much loved mk5 tdi ( money pit) I've owned the car for just over a year and over that period of time I've been saving up bit by bit to do a big transformation.
The cars a 1.9 tdi 160bhp.
All comments are welcome.

This is the car before all the hard work started:





I never took a lot of photos of it standard as I wasn't quite satisfied with the way it looked, but these are a few parts I've bought over the year to get the car to where it is now.










Wheels:
Rotiform blqs

Hellios

And now I've finally made my mind up and bought these
Rotiform cast ind's


My first modification was to fit my xenon's which were supplied my omeydz. This job was a pain in the arse, but definitely worth it.



After a lot of waiting the car had final been done. All I need to do is fit my air suspension.
This is what the car looks like now..







Not satisfied with how it's sittin atm. It's far to high!
Just this to fit..


There will be a load more updates to come. Haven't taken an awful lot of pictures of the car as it is atm.
Thanks for looking

ticked all the right boxes so far dude. Looks really good!

Did you have to chop a lot of plastic from the new bumper to make it fit?

Also you said its 160bhp, what was it as standard?

I don't know what happened with my previous post.. it was just blank but when I went in to edit it, it had a full text body??

Anyway copied and pasted what I wrote

Nice dude.
You'll need a second compressor as the fill time with just one is horrible. So glad I went for 2!  :drinking:

I presume it's been mapped for the 160bhp! I'd check the BHP on some other rollers and do some logging - because at 160bhp it would literally be pushing the turbo past safe limits. The PD105s got a piddly little turbo bless it and the injectors are petty small. At the limit of the stock injectors with the stock turbo you are right on the limit of the MAP sensor with about 1.3-1.4 bar of boost (18-19psi, it trips at 21) and could blow  :ashamed: - This gives a realistic 145, maybe 150 on a push.

Andy - you know you want the GT front end it's the best Mk5 front end IMO.

Also be VERY careful with those rear bags - They have a tendancy to rub on the suspension arm and can go pop

Airlift brought out new double below rear bags - they're the ones I've gone for and they mount ABOVE the cup rather than in it.

Mine

I'd upgrade to those if I were you for safetys sake. This guy wants £100 - http://www.edition38.com/forums/index.php?showtopic=505491  - They look in as new condition.

Thanks dude  :happy2:
I didn't get the the map done, it was already done when I bought it. It is pretty quick tbf, but I thought that was a bit much for a 1.9.

The gt front is the best front in my opinion also.

Yeah I've been told that they rub.. I'm trying to sell both bags so I can buy the new double below performance rear and performance front.

Saw your car at editon on Sunday and I love it! Great job :) is yours also a tdi?

The Slam struts are fine honestly I give mine a fair amount of stick in the corners and it's perfectly fine.
Unless you are making a proper race car, for fast road driving it's good as I explained in PM.  :party:

Just buy those double below ones I linked to on Edition, it's really cheap. I'm sure if you offered him 80 quid he'd take it. Nah this one is a GTI, my old car was the diesel.  :popcornsoda:
