As some of you will know I recently went halves on a track car.
It's an '02 Seat Leon Cupra and came with a k03 hybrid which had been mapped by Niki at R-tech and made 275bhp.
Walbro Fuel Pump
Greddy Turbo timer
Usual Stage 2 mods
Tints all round
5 doors (Because Racecar)
Decat and proflow backbox
18" Wheels with 3 pony tyres and 1 uniroyal
Got it for cheap as it was stuck in 1st gear and had a big dent in the rear quarter panel.
Got the car back and the issue was fixed via some jiggery pokery and spares from an s3 6 speed box.
Rear of the car is completely stripped out, need to lift the front seats to get the carpet out the way though. Centre console will be going at some point, and probably so will the A/C.
Next job was to get the hybrid off the car and go for a more reliable K03s. Hybrid was good fun, spat flames, spun up in the higher gears etc, but for a track car it wasn't the most reliable way and selling it more than halved the cost of the car.
K03s went on, and as many of you will have seen:
Just before this, the nasty duel exit exhaust which made a vortexy whooshing noise that made the car sound like it was going about 300mph was chopped off, and a slashgrinder cut single pipe was fitted.
After the k03s issues, a new plan was formed.
Possibly the cheapest k03/k03s to K04 conversion ever.
So far the grand total for the k04 conversion sits at £100. And as the car is 50/50 with BENJAMIN from here, it owes me £50.
The k04 and associated bits were fitted yesterday evening, and the car is up and running..
Needs an air filter and it's pretty much good to go, but it's going to get a welly cooler and a few pipes need to be bought to go with the few that we have got between us already..
Car is going to have a stage 1 map on it, and will make between 250 and 260bhp.
Will get some exterior pics at some point and post them up.
(I know it's not technically an 8L, but it's similar and no-one looks in the general car chat!)
