I've been a member since 05 I think I used to own a purple N/A GTI which had CMYTOY's old interior until it was written off by a lady not paying attention on the freeway. Since then I had always wanted to get another.

About two or so years ago I picked up Rasputins old 1993 GTI.

viewtopic.php?f=13&t=51366&p=485835#p485835

Modifications:
Modifications are as follows:

Full leather retrim
Suede rooflining
Re-Carpeted
All pushclips replaced
Dashmat
Full body Dynamatting
Resprayed a few years ago
BBS RS 16" wheels wrapped in Falken ZE912s
$2000 sound-system - Focal and German Maestro equipped!
Rare Bonnet-Protector
Window-Weathershields.

254 Duration - 9mm lift camshafts with Adjustable Camgears
Adaptronic E420C ECU
MSD BLASTER ignition coil
Front Coilover conversion (Revalved Koni yellows inside 300LB springs)
Rear Springs/Shocks (Revalved Koni Yellows with 600LB springs)
Heavy Duty Suzitech Gearbox

Making 100HP flat at the wheels, standard induction. Simple SR20 conversion or enlarged throttle body could see this car making a BIG boost in power.

Unfortunately when it got to me the Adaptronic had been replaced with a standard ecu, the owner had reversed into a pole and the car was left in a sorry state of affairs.

and so the journey began.

I had the damage repaired to the rear end and had the bumpers and boot hatch resprayed.

Next it was time for a service with the purple stuff, a change of plugs as it actually had Cino plugs, changed the fuel filter and I added one of the cheap Ebay alloy radiators and silicone hose kits . Just the service made a huge difference to how the car drove.

I replaced the tie rod ends and swapped most of the bushes for poly bushes, I sourced a Suzitech front strut brace which tightened up the ride considerably as most of the bushes had perished.

Then it was time to see if I could get a bit more performance out of the car.

I added a Cultus intake manifold and throttle body, MSD 6AL2 and tach adaptor, 10.2mm ignition leads, custom intake pipe, suzitech carbon fiber heat shield, a DMW high flow fuel rail and turbosmart fuel pressure reg as well as a group A chip.

This seemed to help thing out considerably and with the bd14s the car sounded awesome and kept pretty close to the small boost turbo boys.

After a while I got tired of the overlap of the bd14s at low rpm making it a bit annoying to drive around town even though I loved the sound.

I drove around like this for a while adding only an under body brace, rear strut brace and a carbon rocker cover inlay.

The solution - a low boost turbo setup.

I sourced a cheap $400 turbo kit off gumtree consisting of a turbo chipped ECU, xr6 cooler and a ball bearing turbo off a r33 GTR. I picked up some cultus cams from Luke Burkill and the car was off to Harris Motorsports to have the kit fitted.

Brad did an awesome job with the $400 kit supplied and I can truly say he is an absolute gentleman and did a quality job (fixing crappy parts I supplied).

I was amazed at how drive able the car had become and much better performance from only 5psi of boost.

Again I drove the car around for quite a while enjoying the performance and drive ability however I felt the 16inch BBS knockoffs, although they looked good were heavy and caused the ride to be a bit harsher than it needed to be.

I sourced a set of genuine Volk Rays TE37s and a set of project mu wheel nuts and federal RSR semi slick tires.

I figured while I was at it I should probably upgrade the brakes. I sourced a pair of swift sport calipers from DMW Dave which I sprayed blue and added a some suzuki stickers before having them cleared.

I added some DBA T2 slotted rotors to the front and RDA slotted and dimpled rotors for the rear along with some bendix ultimate pads all round.

I couldn't believe how much of a difference the reduced un-sprung weight made, combined with the new rubber the car drove fantastic.

I was lucky enough to pick up the old suzitech cultus turbo kit from Luke Burkill with a recently refreshed and high-flowed t28 ball bearing turbo. The quality of this kit was a big selling point and as I had been driving around on 5psi for quite a while I felt it was time to add some more boost also.

The kit was fitted by Suzitech who did an awesome job with a turbosmart wastegate, a turbo back 2 1/2 inch mandrel exhaust with high flow cat and muffler and set at 10psi. I added a custom heat shield for the air box and exhaust manifold whipped up in a day by Jake Cunningham with the intention of engineering the build in the near future. I also had an excedy 5 puck button clutch to handle the new found power. I upgraded the 20 some year old break lines with a set of ADR approved braided items which fimed up the pedal a great deal reducing the effects of the larger piston in the swift sport calipers.

I also added a few cosmetic things such as the Birba white dials, Sparco carbon fiber pedals, GTI floor mats and a monster sport gear knob thanks to David Morgan.

I also have waiting to be installed a new pleather gear boot and battery tray thanks to Steve Cormie that I am yet to fit as well as some new interior carpet throughout.

I thought I would add a set of custom plates to go along with the new setup.

This takes us to the current position where I am looking to have the car engineered.

The car has been weighed at 880kgs with a full tank of fuel, stereo and spare and I have just had emissions done. Hopefully everything will pass in the new year.

plans for the future are a 1600 franken box, haltech elite 750 with bigger injectors and fuel pump and an engine rebuild for reliability.

I'm not looking to run copious amounts of boost and will most likely keep it around the 15psi mark.

Very nicely done! =D> Great to see yet another great example being looked after and tastefully modified. Good choice on the TE37's. Many not be bling but they are just so light!

Thanks mate its been a long slow build but its definitely getting there. I received some good advice from nuffy many years back just keep it tidy and fast with no after market kits.

The te37s were my second choice I had originally wanted a set of advan rg2s but they don't make them with the right stud pattern and offset from what i could find.

They did a great job setting it up it runs like it came turbo from the factory. they did take photos of the build but I haven't had them sent through to me yet.

Using an evo plumb back BOV and the AFM is set up just before the pod.

Some cosmetic progress this week. Sorry in advance for all the pictures.

I managed to locate a genuine Suzuki sport steering wheel and I had a redlinegti.com dash mat made up as I was struggling to locate one that someone wanted to part with.

Next it was time to strip out the interior and redo all the speaker wiring which was terrible to say the least. I think I removed about 5kg of un-needed wiring. I replaced it with all new wiring and connectors for good measure.

I got a set of new window regs thanks to Nickg13b, greased them up well and fitted them up now they are like new.

I fitted all new carpet and replaced all the little push clips, plastic clips and inner door openers which made a huge difference as it looks almost like new now. I fitted up a new gear boot and battery tray thanks to Steve Cormie at Suzispares. I must say he is a nice guy and very easy to deal with (highly recommended).

I also got around to fitting up the Heko weather shields that I had sitting around thanks to Josh (butcher554).

Hi,

What steering wheel boss did you use to mount your SS steering wheel?

Cheers,

Drew
