    Some of you will know a bit about the car but i thought i would post up the details from the start (it'll take a while so bare with me ;) )

    I purchase the car back in nov 2004 as a standard 2.0 16v cupra sport and decided it would be my sensible run about, i had all intentions of keeping it reletivly standard bar changing the exhaust and suspension but that wasn't to be.

    After replacing complete exhaust system, panel filter, suspension, wheels and brakes i was happy with the look and drive of the car but wanted more power.

    Decision time!! do i buy another mk3 cupra or convert this to 20vt power?? after trawling through ETKA and comparing parts etc i decided i'd have a go at the conversion (bearing in mind im not a mechanic by trade so would be learning as i went this was a kind of big task for me)

    I found a doner car on good old flebay and after trailoring it back from Coventry set to work literally pulling the car to pieces. 2 weeks later the shell was sent to car heven and then the real fun began.

    1 week on my mk2 rolled out of the workshop, housing a new 20vt engine and complete wiring loom (inside aswell) it took me another 4 weeks to get the car to a standard i was happy with but it looked almost factory when it was done.

    There were a few teething problems to start with, airmass, N75 etc but with everything replaced the car ran sweet and even turned out to have a remaped ecu which was a bonus.

    This is where the real probs started, i was happy with it for a while but then decided i needed more power (as you do) since the initial build almost 2 years ago the car as undergone various changes and i've thrown a small fortune at it.

    Pics below show various states of play over the last couple of years and a few of the build process

    Hats off to you sir!

    Superb mate. Looks like you have done one hell of a good job on the conversion. Is that the laguna dci intercooler?
