    Mk2 20vt

    Haven't been on the forum long but it's already becoming a new home with all the info about 20v lumps & stuff for sale so figured I put some pics up of my mk2 20vt

    Started off as a standard 1990 mk2 8v with 2 owners & 83,000 original miles!

    4 years later... It's now a AMK K04'd running mk2 golf on standard management.

    Modifications/notes:

    Massive pipercross air filter
    N249 bypassed
    Forge 007p
    Badger 5 V3 TIP
    Simplified breather system
    Re-manu K04-023
    FMIC & 2.5" piping
    2.5" QPeng downpipe to Jetex SS sytem
    02A CTN (Mk3 Golf diesel gearbox)
    G60 lightened flywheel w/ Vr6 sachs clutch
    G60 bonded transmission mount, solid front engine mount, poly insert for rear engine mount
    Uprated K-jet 5bar fuel pump
    General engine dressing, polished & powdercoated bits & bobs!

    Kw V1 Inox line coilovers
    23.8mm Ibiza cupra R master cylinder
    Running Wilwood 280mm Midilite front brakes
    Corrado hydro clutch system
    Borbet B alloys 7.5x 16 running 205/45/16 Pirelli P-zeros

    Full RAAMmat soundproofing
    Audioscape speaker grills
    TIM boost gauge
    2 in 1 Racetech mechanical oil temp/pressure gauge

    Pretty much everything's been replaced on the car from the ground up right to the full gasket re-build on the engine. Re-sprayed engine bay, wired tucked/re routed, battery, washer bottle re-located to the boot etc.

    Let the pictures do the rest of the talking

    Yeah I have the full build on CGTI, this site is more focused towards the 20v engine though & that's where the attention is at now for me.

    It's 2.5, using the qpeng downpipe & jetex 2 box system (soon to modified because it keeps smacking the rear axle)

    Thanks for the comments

    Hi mate, I'm in the process of doing a mk2 1.8t conversion at the moment, amazing pictures! Looks like you have done an excellent job.

    Do you have a link to your build thread?

    You bought it over to B5 for a smoke test, you have leaks in the PCV system IIRC

    Ahh, apologies mate I didn't put the username to you

    Yup, the breather systems all sorted now - Got rid of all the valves/pipes underneath & used the simple one piece pipe. I found out what the leak was from oil filter housing, the solid 90* plastic breather pipe coming out of it had split at a join from underneath. Replaced the Y piece that was all squidgy - £80 lighter for those two pipes

    I'll be back down sometime next month for another smoke test just to confirm it's all leak free & potentially some logging as the car's still not running right if I don't sort it myself before hand (lazy)!

    Thanks guys

    Fitted a toad alarm & kill switches over the last 2 weeks so don't feel as paranoid about leaving it anywhere now. Got a suede sparco steering wheel coming, got to re-trim the headliner this weekend & on the hunt for some decent bucket seats & a serious car detailer.

    Been looking at companies like detail my ride & autodetox if anyone has any recommendations on service, quality of work etc..?

    Little update. Haven't really done much on it for a while due to the weather (cold)! & generally just enjoying driving it!

    Got 1 seat fitted after having to modify all the subframes for it to suit & fit so I'm comfortable. Installed the harness & the wheel in also.

    Started the headliner, it's pretty much almost finished just needs to be re-trimmed. Needed alot of fibreglassing as it was F*c*ed.

    Also now have it booked in for a 3 day paint restoration with detail my ride, probably going to have the bonnet carbon wrapped to just for something a little different B)

    Thanks for the comments chaps, keeps me motivated to get her finished. So close - especially hard in the winter months! Still haven't found a replacement headliner & I'm desperate to have it mapped though recently the car has gone completely to the back of the priority list so not sure when it'll get done now

    Had it detailed recently from the boys at 'Detailmyride' 18 hours worth of a machine polishing alone so I was told, came out looking immaculate.

    Here some pictures shot with their Dslr cam:

    Thanks for the comments guys.

    Gave her a good wash & wax today, first time since the detail - came up just as good as she left the place so really happy about that (& how easy it was!)

    Sourced another headliner last weekend & finished off repairing it today, will be re-trimming it next weekend hopefully. I messed the last one up by getting to excited with the fibreglass & repairing the material side so there would have been bumps in the material!

    Took off the original woeful soundproofing on the roof. I've been driving around for a few weeks with no headliner & having temporaily fit the one I got last weekend to drive home - it's amazing how much of a difference it makes being in there to quietening down the car & making the music sound better. Keeping that in mind, the remaining RAAMmat I have left over from the rest of the car & the closed cell foam will now be making it's way on to the roof for more quiet

    Also popped the resistor in for the n80 - charcoal canister purge valve as it was the only thing making the engine management light stay on so once I've erased the codes I should be EML Free!

    Should have some pictures next week - Spent the last two hours looking for my vagcom cable that had managed to make it's way under my mrs bed 9 miles away!?

    Car's back off the road again now

    I've had an underlying boost fault that I never realised was actually a fault until a month or so ago. Long story short, I had mixed up n249 plug with n75 plug & had being essentially running around in the car with the n75 disconnected as it was plugged into a bypassed n249.

    The reason I never really suspected anything is because it was just slow to build boost, 1.5bar around 4-4.5k (though I've never driven another 20v to of known!). When I realised my mistake & plugged the plugs back into their correct sensors, the car was mental to drive. Boost spiked at 2.0bar++ at around 2.5/3k & pulled 1.5bar to redline - was a weapon to drive that once but very obviously over-boosting.

    Further investigation & understanding, was disconnecting n75 valve, the turbo should run on actuator pressure (6psi, 0.5bar) this evidently wasn't the case as I'd been using the car for months with it disconnected & it was running 0.5 bar to 4.5k, then hitting 1.5bar & maintaining to redline. More faffing & advice from Bill @ B5 revealed the turbo that I'd purchased from Midland turbo was manufactured faulty. B5 had a Chinese copy K04 in recently with similar symptoms to what I described. B5's investigation lead to finding the wastegate port hole was actually TO SMALL. It being to small, means there isn't a big enough hole to allow the air to escape through the wastegate & relieve the boost to 6psi / 0.5 bar.

    When I removed the turbo last weekend to check, I measured up the hole & inspected, called Midland turbo & had them compare. The turbo they had sold me had a 5mm diameter smaller port hole than was actually specified! My turbo measuring at 21mm, rather than 25/26mm. My turbos LIMP MODE was 1.5bar instead of 0.5bar! They also admitted using a chinese hot side, as gen hot sides are very difficult to source.

    Got the turbo back Monday & I'm amazed at the difference in sizes.







    New:







    & How the car looks at the moment:






    Going to order some valve stem seals this week, I'll put those in when re-fitting the turbo. Hopefully will cure the excessive oil burning on cold startup after it's been sat a while. If the stems are worn, I'll buy some rods & do those at the same time later on in the year when funds are available. I will get this car mapped eventually!

    Re: Mk2 20vt

    Well done finding the fault dude.
    Its pretty awfil they have the audacity to use Chinese copy parts in their turbo builds.
    Is the replacenent genuine or just had the bore size fixed?

    Car still looks stunning.
