    Cupra may live again after all, just not IHI'd... after spending sometime working on the car over the last few days I've decided to fix it as a standard K03 car with possibly a map on it.

    It's too clean of a car to break for bits, I'll get it back onto the road cleaner than ever before then sell it when the time is right.

    Excellent news mate.

    If your repairing the engine though, is it not worth keeping the IHI setup on it, just uprate the valves?

    Matt - Still fancying a change, I've made a decent amount back selling off modifications and just fancy a standard mapped K03 car to run around in for a few more weeks before changing.

    Need to find the following parts;

    - Full Standard Exhaust System inc. DP & CAT
    - Standard Gearbox
    - Wheels & Tyres
    - Airbox
    - Washer Bottle
    - AUX Belt

    And thats about it, sourced a block and some front brakes :D

    Ah so no chance of having your bumpers then? :lol:

    To be honest i'd rather see a cupra on the road than being broken up for parts, i'll let you off the change of heart ;)

    :lol:

    Fuel pump will be coming out tomorrow, I'm interested to see what Jabba have done as it looks like they've used half the Mk3 stuff and half S3 stuff!?!

    Sorted for standard turbo's and bits will just need gaskets and studs.

    Standard interior's all back in and done, now just need to fit the brakes than should be here Sunday then crack on sorting the engine and gearbox out. Once back together it'll get a map and be driven for a few weeks whilst been advertised for sale...

    Can't sell it without giving it an extended test drive to make sure everythings right, or thats what I keep telling myself, I know when its all up and running I'll want IHI again lol!!

    You do realise that driving an remapped ko3 after IHI is going to feel like your riding a bike...backwards!

    Glad maybe some kind of good can come from jabbas dare I say it mistake. Replied to your thread in the wanted section as I have a dp and cat.

    Yep but I'm driving a 1.4 Golf (my runaround) all the time at the moment so it's better than nothing. Problem is all the potential next car's I fancy have all felt slow as sh*t I just have to blank the speed factor and look at the handling and potential to go fast.

    Still I've got my K4 GSXR600 to play on for when I'm bored at the mo!
