Default VW Scirocco CR170 - CBBB - GTB2260.

Hi guys
Over in the UK I am building a performance based VW Scirocco which has the CR170 engine.
My previous cars have all been VW's, bit of a love affair.
My first one, a 1.9 BKC PD Engine Golf V, which ended up having a Darkside GTB1756vk and PD130 injectors making 221bhp and 365lb ft.


I then upgraded to a Golf V GTI DSG, which was a huge project for me, with Airlift struts, E-level, etc. This was Revo Stage 2 with Pipewerx Decat, Evoms Intake

Now I've moved onto this Scirocco with the CR170 engine.
It was bought as standard with a high specification.
Including DCC adaptive damping, Xenons, etc
Installed my Recaro Buckets (from a B7 RS4).

I fitted it with Superpro Camber adjustable ball joints, H&R lowering springs and Powerflex wishbone bushes (front & rear)

All the suspension coming off...

Here's how it looked the next morning after Alignment.

Fitted a MKV GTI Gearstick.

and a new Bosch S5 007 Battery.
Adjustable quickshift kit.

Gave it a full service with new BMC Panel Filter, new genuine oil and air filter, Millers Nanodrive 5w40 race oil, new arb links, and 12mm H&R spacers all around (needed because of the brakes).
Aston Martin DB9 4 Pots, EBC USR 340mm discs, custom carrier adaptors, HEL braided lines and Pagid RS4-2 blue pads.

Fitted a Fiscon PF03 Advanced MFD add on.

And Superpro track dogbone insert.

I work as a detailer evenings and weekends for my friends company.
Gave it a bath

Brakes certainly were big enough...

Took it to a place I'm sure many of you are familiar with, Darkside Developments, for a DPF delete and Stage 2 mapping.



And here are the results.


EGT's limited to 850 degree C verified with Polar MFD add on.
195bhp and 340lb ft.

Stock intercooler at this time.
Can't see how people can get a genuine 220bhp from these engines.

Changed the MKV GTI Gearknob for a one-off Golf MkVII (7)



Then finished off the rest of the exhaust with a Eurojet system.
A Eurojet 3 inch V Band system, This exhaust was orignally going on my GTI, but as I was selling it, I lined Alex (a good friend who owns a company called AKS Tuning) up with another buyer - Who had since bailed. Fortunately for me...

Looks lovely. Very shiney...very big.
Firstly we inspected the Darkside down pipe to see how we'd have to adapt. The Darkside system was 3 inch from the turbo to about half way down the exhaust tunnel, where it was reduced to I think it's 2.5 inchs to the stock system.
We (I say we, Alex did it ) needed to fabricate up an adjoining link pipe. So we started with some 3 inch stainless steel piping.

Measure twice, cut once.
Or in Alex's case, measure once (and do it properly) and cut once.

Out comes the TIG welder! To connect the new link pipe to the existing Eurojet link pipe at one of the 90 degree bends..

Not bad for a quickie!!!

Now onto the car.....
20141219_165601 by Fat Bear Photography, on Flickr
Having to cut away the reducer off the back of the Darkside DP... not nice !!
20141219_170931 by Fat Bear Photography, on Flickr
After a slip on sleeve was fitted to connect to the Darkside downpipe, as well as mounting up the rest of the exhaust system less than 2 hours later we had the following:

20141219_173223 by Fat Bear Photography, on Flickr
I am booked in at Darkside again for a GTB2260 kit so am looking forward to that on the 16th of February.
I have clutch and intercooler going on before hand and I will be updating as and when I have more performance related enhancements. And any news or information about these engines I will share, whatever I do I try and learn and understand about them as much as possible.

Nothing too special so far but understand this is a mostly American forum and you guys don't get the Scirocco thought you'd guys like to see a build from across the point and it'll be nice to share the progress

I want another Scirroco ! I bought a new one in 87 and put 350k on it. Never replaced the clutch. Sold it with no problems except a non working drivers window. Regret selling.

yeah very strange VWOA didn't bring it over... sure there's a reason for it though.

Back in the day all of the VW's were probably more reliable!! too many electrics now.
this one feels good though, so fingers crossed.

Got any pics of your old one?

It was a really good car bless it.
Although I blew the gearbox up at Santa Pod drag strip.




It's a HUGE investment for not much extra BHP (perhaps 40-50bhp and another 20ft lb or torque, although it will hold it's power for a much larger proportion of the rev range) but once Darkside have cracked the fuel pump and injectors, then we can start going for the 300bhp barrier which is ultimately what I'm aiming for!

Also, here's a quick video of the noise with the exhaust bits done.

Excuse the auto focus, I forgot to set it to manual... doh.

LOVE that body style. Saw a chick here, in Canada last summer... at the fuel station. She was working for the Greek embassy. She imported her black Sirocco for her 2 year stay. She was very nice, chatted with me for 15mins.

Not a TDI, but none the less, a very nice chassis. Id buy it over a golf in a heart beat.

Thanks for the car porn!
