Re: Need some advice on a seat ibiza 20l sport

It really depends on the end power you aim for. And if you use the stock management already upping the injector size is an issue becuase for a start you have to remap the entire stock map for that.
So if it was me 440cc plus aftermarket.

Re: Need some advice on a seat ibiza 20l sport

Graham savage that owns goldwagen CBD built a golf 4 with the same motor turbo. We ran it on a perfect power xms. This piggyback plus turbo module thing never works for me but ...

Why does people keep getting that wrong. If the release bearing is stuffed it makes noise when you step on the clutch. That is when it works ie release bearing turning - gearbox stops turning.

Re: Vibration: Velociti 1.6i

Check the righthand engine mount by the timing belt. Those fail usually first and allows metal contact to the body which is what you are feeling.

Re: 105 000km oil service required

If they change just oil and filter I suppose it is about right.
But a regular service should involve oil, oil filter, air filter, fuel filter, cabin filter.
Let them give you a breakdown.
If you change the items I mention then 1500 is very cheap
