    APY Golf Rallye!

    Hello everyone from Spain!
    I think this is the rigth place to introduce myself.
    My name is Federico, I live in Spain and building a s3-golf rallye project. I thought I could share some experiences and also learn some others on this forum, so here I am.
    Yes, thats wrigth, Im replacing engine, 02M, Haldex, 5x100, ABS, EDS, airbags, interior and even the sunroof.
    I know it will take time and patiance but the result should be just glorius.
    I dont know if anyone has done this around here, but if youd like, I could share some pictures as they become available.
    Will keep in touch!
    Cheers!

    PS. Excuse my english if any mistakes!

    Thanks for the welcome!

    Well, project will sure take a long time because I only dedicate time to it on Sundays plus I take my time to do it right. But Ill keep you posted on the progresses.
    By the way, do you guys know the best and safest way of getting the most power of that k04 on the APY?
    The car will be a daily driver with a/c, so I dont need those
    300 ponys everybody is after on this engines.
    Cheers to all!

    Quite a few of them over here now, seem to work well, just couldnt bring my self to do that to a Rallye tho!

    My mate Kev had an amazing S3 install in his Rallye, one hell of an engineering feat with all the haldex fitted, only problem with it was rust attacking the structure of the car being in the wet uk. So your Rallye has a Sunroof then?

    Its a nice idea to have a Rallye with an S3 soul. And the sunroof is been implanted from the donor S3.
    By the way. Do you Know if any of the Rally-S3 built on this site has the S3 dashboard installed? Any pics? Cause Im also transplanting the whole interior.

    Hello 8 sin. The engine is the APY code = 1.8T 210Hp, pre-reestyling S3.
    I have the complete wreck car to take apart and put it in the Rallye. 02M and Haldex included

    What I meant was does it have a sunroof at the moment? If not DO NOT CUT IT!!!

    If you want Ill explain why thru a private message, but please for the love of god dont put a sun roof into a non sunroof Rallye!

    Ill see if I can find some pics for you. Most people go for the TT Dash as its nicer than the S3, the S3 is only one step up from nasty Jap dashs!
