Car was new April 2002

The car was formerley owned by Allied Grain Berwick upon Tweed Scotland, where it was a reps car. It had full service history at Western VW Edinburgh, with oil changes every 10k and had just under 80K when i was introduced to it.

I fell in love with this Golf in 2005...

A mate ( 2nd hand car dealer) lent it to me as my car was off the road. I took it to Croft to watch the Touring cars and was very impressed by it. I asked him how much it was going for and got it for £7500 cash. It replaced a 1994 Astra mk4 1.7 TD the issuzzu engined vauxhall which Id had from 6 month old. It pretty much stayed standard for a long time. I put a set of R32 rims on which were a Xmas present and left it at that for a while ...the more I browsed this forum the more ideas I got. It started with a K&N filter and 80mm cold air feed. I also got a very expensive German tuning box for reasonable money from a mate. Then one day it was down on power and that was traced to a choked up EGR and inlet manifold. I did the EGR delete and ran it for a while till I finally got a coilover kit due the susspension been rather saggy. It had a full set of zimmerman drilled discs and greenstuff pads put on for the MOT Aug 06....so that was the start of me spending a fortune

This was it in its totally origional condition

Todays job involved drilling out retapping and inserting an helicoil repair thread on the engine mount. Whilst doing the cambelt I found 1 tread totally stripped. which left the engine supported on 1 bolt and one held in with liquid metal, which was supprisingly tightly held.

Whilst intercooler piping was off it was time for a change. Something a bit smoother flowing!

Its suprising how restrictive this intercooler to EGR pipe is.When you put the new 57mm pipe at the side of it some of the bends are unbelievable. Heres the origional intercooler connection. which will be removed and replaced with the alloy machined SFS part.

The parts I got were not an expensive kit but rather ecomomically s elected items from ebay. They do require a bit of cutting of the 57mm 45deg alloy bend. but its easy to do.

Connection to the EGR 57mm 90 deg silicone bend

Before

Posted Image


After...The complete replacement. Looks nice and OEM and flows much better.

Well impressed with the result all at a cost of ;

2x 57mm 90deg silicone bends £22.66

1x 57mm 45 deg alloy bend £19.99

4 x 55mm-70mm jubilee clips £2.92

1X alloy adaptor 57mm to VW intercooler £12.50 This is a SFS item which I purchased off a member ( thanks Dub130)

total £58.97

A whopping saving over the SFS price @ £133
