[^]hi i wonder if anyone can help i am currently driving a 1.4e golf i like the car although it is lacking in the power department does anyone know if the ecu off a 100bhp lupo 1.4 sport will fit straight on, or is there any other form of piggy back ecu what will do the same thanks!

TBH mate, its not worth it with a 1.4 , theyre so power restricted you wont really get much out of it. Instead do like I have, keep ur chin up, rag the beast lol, and wait till the day you get a much faster Golf :)

About the ecu. Not sure about that. Although I remember hearing something about a Lupo Gti and Golf , so something is there, just cant remember what!

Glad to have another 1.4 aboard :D

As above, it is not worth doing anything to the 1.4 as there is very little that can be done, as to swapping the ecu, as far as I can remember the lupo sport has different engine components, so a direct ecu swap would not do you any good.

Ive heard that the cylinder head is slightly different on the 100bhp engine. Best sticking to visual mods and Save save save for that TDI!!!

woo hoo... the 1.4 forum! wouldnt bother... keep it looking good and keep the engine pristine as in a couple of years you can sell it for more than a ragged engine [;)]! But a bit of raggins fine!

hi guys, if you havnt already done so, then get yourself over here: http://uk-mkivs.net/forums/t/287982.aspx [Y]

As already said the best you can do to a 1.4 it induction kit + exhaust. Wont add alot of power but will sharpen up the throttle responce and make it sound better lol. Saying that, on guy at the latest 1.4 meet had had his 1.4 remaped and chipped and it was deff faster than mine (but i do have heavy 18" reps and he was on standard rims lol)

tough decisions to make....

either stick with the 1.4, or roll in a 1.9 tdi 130 Bora....Think i might keep the 1.4, visualize the car, then maybe at the end of the year get a Bora
