    Corrado 1.8 20VT AGU

    Happy New Year fellas ! Here's a short introduction for my Corrado:

    Bought it on March 2009 and it was looking like this:




    First it had a 1.8 16v KR engine from a mk2 Golf (bought it this way), then i had to buy a 2.0 16v 9A engine to register the car (9A was the original engine on my car), rebuilt the 9A and finally got the car with my name on the papers.
    In less than a mounth i found another Corrado, but VR6, so i bought it for a complete conversion. So i got the engine, gearbox, subframe, drive shafts, brakes and coilovers and fitted to mine. Also the vr6 had black leather interior witch i fitted as well.





    Soon after, the car got a full respray in its original colour









    Then i decided to go 1.8T :D so i bought an AGU from a MK4 Golf. Had a problem first as i noticed a big pressure in the coolant hoses. Got the cylinder head removed, rebuilt it and got it resurfaced, bought all new gaskets, camshaft seals, head bolts, timing kit, water pump, chain tensioner and fitted all back.





    While doing this, also bought a set of BBS RS 8x16 all around, then got 2 bigger lips for the rear. I got them nice and shiny with many hours of hard sanding and polishing.









    Back to the engine, i was susprised at the first run to see it ran 1 bar boost with 1.2-1.3 overboost meaning it have allready been remapped in the past. Now i don't see more than 0.6 - 0.7 bar boost, probably due to a boost leak or faulty N75.
    Now the car is sleeping for the winter in an underground parking and right before i got it to sleep, i bought it a Recaro beige leather interior with electric & heated seats.







    Now here's some random pics from 2012:






    Current specs are:

    1.8T AGU engine, aparently remapped

    FMIC & 63mm aluminium piping
    63mm downpipe
    57mm stainless steel straight pipe exhaust with Borla muffler.
    710N Diverter Valve

    Corrado G60 gearbox & clutch
    VR6 subframe & drive shafts

    FK coilovers
    ATE Power Disc (280mm) with ATE pads
    Recaro interior in beige leather with electric & heated seats
    16" BBS RS's 8" front / 8.5" rear

    195/40 Toyo Proxes T1R all around

    Will get back to the winter projects later on. Cheers!

    Beautiful example you got there. Absolutely love the alloys, the leather interior and most importantly I feel the colour the car is. Keep it up buddy :thumbup:

    Thanks for the replies guys! Was hoping to upgrade the k03 to a k04 soon but i'm not sure if i got the right stuff for a good turbo. Here's my problem: K04 - Should I Rebuild This ?
    Maybe some of you can help. Cheers!

    Forget about the K04, got myself a TD04L-13T from a Subaru WRX. Started the cleaning process first and then i'll get a rebuild kit for it.
