Nice write-up mate, you have some good spec's on the car. Fitting a VE would be a nice additional especially for the track. It wont be long until you decide that VE should be a VET Laughing

Thats a lovely well spec'd motor thumbsup

What sort of power is it running, 170hp?

Natural selection does not work quick enough  Evil or Very Mad

Everybody needs a bosom for a pillow...

Woody, the VE would indeed be a nice upgrade, im hoping tot het around 190-200 bhp with custom mapping, N1 cams, bigger intake with a Q45 throttlebody and a fujitsubo exhaust.

Pulsarmoley, i dont thing i have 170 bhp now, stock it was 143 and the engine is the only thing i haventje really changed som much, mainly because i wanted a VE trok the beginning. I dont have tested the output of this engine aswell.

First video with dodgy music no available and yours looked good on track but crack in the windscreen was so annoying watching the video lol

(Small) update time

Last month ive ordered about 75% off al the parts i need to get the VE going, now im looking for some time to start building it.

Last week ive started fitting a FRP bonnet:

Made some aerocatch pins in it:

Hoping to make a bigger update regarding the VE soon!

Last week made some progress getting the car ready to get the old engine out and the VE in. Also took the electric windows out with al the wiring and the glass. The glass window will be used to make some lexan windows. Saves about 4kg per door. The wiring of the ABS is also gone, made a switch to turn ABS on of off but because its always off im deleting it aswell.

Took the dashboard out:

The new wiring for the Greddy MSS and VE solenoids will be integrated in the normale wiring loom.

Also took the front off starting to make room to take the DE out. Next thing is to make the front bumper bar lighter and delete more wires under the hood, and modify it to fit the VE.

First box full with stuff that doesnt go back in the car, hope more will folow XD

More will follow soon!

Great read this thanks for the update

Amazing how much weight you can actually free up when removing stuff. Good to hear you're making progress.

11 Re: Tracktool Sunny GTI on 10th April 2016, 1:28 pm


Just as a starter you can remove 2 massive pieces of weight at the front. One under the radiator and one behind the front bumper. Wiring weighs also more than you would guess.
