1990 mk2 golf GTI 20vt 1.8 turbo
After 2.5 years and less than a thousand miles its time to move it on. I bought this as an 8v with 224k and although it ran well and has a fully stamped service book yes really! It leaked every fluid and the car was tired all over. At the time I was breaking our mk4 20vt with high miles, as it never gave us any trouble in nearly 2 years i was happy to put that engine in my mk2. Id had that car mapped so it still has that map on it. Ill try to remember and list the full spec.. Bright blue metallic, desirable colour. MOT May (done 800 miles since). ARZ me7.5 dbw de-immod. Tach converter, all dials work.

ECU lives under the dash with OBD port, easily accessible. 02A 5 speed from a B4 passat, ridiculously short geared tbh so its not what youd call slow. It pulls as hard in 5th as it does in 3rd. Forge 007 recirc valve that has new seals and piston.

Qpeng 2.5 downpipe and brand new 2.5 trackslag exhaust. Early vr6 280mm front brakes, all 4 calipers were resealed with new pistons, stainless front nipples, rear are titanium as biggred didnt have stainless in stock! Rear beam polybushed, as is the steering rack, all other bushes and bearings are new.

Brand new AD08Rs up front, half worn A048s on the back. Cheap coilovers which are unseized and servicable but dont do the car justice.

Uprated twin relay headlight loom. I do have an engine cover that I started to modify to fit around the forge DV, it looks much better with it on. Inside it has ultra violets, and the seats are excellent, I refurbed the drivers seat with a passenger donor so the bolsters are like new. TIM volt, oil pressure and boost gauges, i can easily prove it has good oil pressure! Headliner is pinned up as youd expect! Windy windows but does have working central locking.

So the outside is where it gets interesting. Not gonna lie, its a 20 feet car thats pretty if you squint.

Its tatty, and has crusty bits. If you want a minter, pay more and look elsewhere. The bonnet is black as a week after I finished it the bonnet came up at 75mph and destroyed it, also dented the roof which Im assured will push out.

Clutch MC is weeping, it still works but the pedal isnt returning fully. Rocker cover gasket is starting to leak. Starter motor is lazy, pretty easy job on these though.

Aux belt tensioner is getting squeaky, doesnt help that it lives in the garage and gets started once every month or 2! I did a huge reconstruction on the drivers floor, jacking point, inner and outer sill, but the passenger side and spare wheel well has a typical 90s bodge up. Its still solid but I did what was needed to get an mot.

I have pics of the work I did. I also welded in a new battery tray. Therell be loads Ive forgotten, i bought loads of service items when I built it, new coilpacks, gearbox oil etc etc. Its still taxed and insured so Im happy to take people out for a ride in it. Expect a bumpy ride and many boost noises! The item "1990 mk2 golf GTI 20vt 1.8 turbo" is in sale since Saturday, March 2, 2019.
