Mk1 20 valve | Wiara

Post by Ash0 » Mon May 27, 2019 12:02 pm

Hey Guys

Starting a rides thread to share the unfolding of my dream car - it's been a VERY LONG yet lekker journey but **** I want to drive my car now man!

I'm gonna need some advice from those who've gone this route... (and yes I've tried searching the forum for answers lol )

Car's been standing for well over 5 years but we've got some movement recently

I've got the AGU motor and box, Reliability is top concern, but I'd like to squeeze out a lil more power than stock... will be my daily drive.

Not sure how much detail to add but there's a lot of pics that can fill in the blanks. I can give more details as needed...

1st question
Regarding clutch pedal, what options do I have and which is easier:
Modify golf 1 or get golf 4 pedal?

Thank you in advance gents!

Hi Guys,

Just an update - got the kit from Saxo - fits well - thank you guys!

I've got some pics but my Tapatalk app isn't working - Radiator, Intercooler and New spec dash is in and we've started running the wires.

Can anyone suggest a mobile auto elec who can wire up my engine?
Have the new spec golf 1 wiring harness that came with the dash.

thanks gents!

Very few people is going to come out to you to do work on your car. Away from your workshop where if you need the smallest something you forgot where at your own place you take a few stpes and get it becomes a mission to get in the car and either fetch or go buy.
