Cool Wayne Modz Polo 9N3 PD130 GT

hi everybody,

i just wanted to share my journey with my polo with you guys.

2011 November 23, I Purchased a 2006 Polo TDI Sportline with 105 000kms,
all it had was Q7 reps.
The GTI grill and lights appeared on the vehicle history whilst at 7kms,
somehow the original dealer added these





it was a female owner, and the car was super clean!

Default Phase 2

I then went on a mission to have a simple and smart look to it,

i sourced 16" Sportline facelift wheels,
genuine GTI sideskirts and boot spoiler and rear diffuser.
and painted the front bumper gti style.
added a AMG tail piece for that cupra feel since its a diesel...
and i relocated the badges like a GTI.







the car was then lowered,


added some tuning ,

115kw 378nm @ Kwikfit Chatsworth Durban,


157hp 387nm @ Richards Bay

The car managed a 15.8 standard, 15.5 with a cheap remap and i brought it down to 15.2 with a self tune. with just a de-cat and mufflectomy.

Default Phase 3, The Guinea Pig

This is where my car got messed up,
from fiddling with stuff, not putting stuff back and continuously trying stuff.
This is the real school fees.
Also i put on a set of matt gunmetal grey cupra wheels.
and a fmic, with boost pipes that came out the bumper...long story.





the car managed to make 135kw @ APR Durban @ 1.55bar.
One night i was rushing home, i really abused my car, and the EGT's went thru the turbo. and a conrod had bent in the process
260 000kms, the car had an overhaul on the block. and a GT1749V turbo.
Software was restored.


So i decided to be patient this time, build my car neatly,
i went with the plastic cup replica bumper and an original seat sport intercooler with oem pipes attached and the rest are 50mm from the turbo to cooler and cooler to intake is 63mm.


this was short lived, 2 weeks later i knocked a truck tyre that was left on the free way ,and the car had been gone into the panel shop.

Like the saying goes, do it once, do it right. Looks like you had to learn that the hard way, but looks like you are on the right track now.

Here is my vote for your Recaro seats. https://www.recaro-automotive.com/us...rtster-cs.html

Keep it up.

Just an update. ..its been a while,
The car was in another accident, this time i knocked a boulder placed on the highway, im assuming for theft purposes. ..

Since then Ive had to replace the steering rack, front axle,
Ive replaced shocks with height adjustable coilovers, the cupra cooler was damaged and ive replaced that with a 400x300x76. The car was set at 1.8 bar, made 232hp and 2.2 bar with more fuelling and timing, same dyno... and it made 230hp.
The cast manifold isnt holding up well due to the lack of bracing, i had to ditch the log style due to the flange warping and there was no time to face it off, so ive put a glange on the cast manifold, allows easy removal of the turbo, just had it redone a month ago, and the engineers told me that the cast isnt gonna hold up, so ive decided to use another engineer to build up another log style manifold similar to xman's ones.
Ive just purchases a cylinder head from a ATD,
Its getting port+polish, 3angle valve seats,
120% firad nozzles
Piper cams stage 1

I have a SMF already,
Apart from Nitrous and LSD, i cannot think of anything else i can do....

Pictures to follow very soon

So as ive been purchasing my items, my bore decided to show its age, after 400 000kms... guess it was time....

so we've ported the head...


added a bigger cam



ARL Pistons (Alcan) 20 thou with Forged Conrods


Complete assembly balanced, the crank was terribly off.


assembled,




and since we're already in a huge amount of debt, i decided to import the best chra i could find.




Ive got a set of 80% nozzles but unfortunately cannot find someone in my country to install and calibrate them.
So I will have to get a calibrated set imported and this time i want 120%.... but for now,
I cant wait to get my engine back in, get dirty with tuning, and see if i can make more than the 172kw i made prior to this.

Should make some good power with your rebuilt engine there. I'm looking forward to see what it can do when it's all back together.
