    Currently tucked away in the garage on SORN until the weather improves. The last time I drove it in December the first three gears were fairly pointless and still had wheel spin in fourth. The seats need to come back out and I need to drop the subframe for them a bit lower at the back plus colour the seat backs from blue to black to suit the car. I’ll probably vinyl wrap them rather than paint. As with every Corrado I have few niggles I need to sort plus a pile of parts to fit but it’s turning into quite a special car

    Thanks. I bought it from Peter Black who owned a blue 20vt that he sold fairly recently. I'll try and find his user name for you

    Have a search for Pete b

    Part of the package for more power arrived today in the form of Bosch 630cc fuel injectors



    The car is also booked in for a full custom 3” exhaust to replace the current 2.5” jetex.
    I’m still pushing towards 300bhp as the magic number but I suspect the turbo will be the next weak point and I'd rather spend on a lsd before a hybrid turbo

    I've dropped the sump off as I had an oil leak at the joint to the block. All looks good and clean so that's good news. You can see the forged rods with ARP bolts and the forged pistons just.





    Has anyone fitted a different coolant expansion tank? I want to get the Porsche coolant cap on but the corrado thread diameter is smaller. I have this spare tank for a seat Leon so am going to adapt it to fit


    Also, can someone point me in the direction of baffles to insert into my current oil sump?

    There was a guy on Club Gti making baffles for the 1.8t sump, I'll have a browse and see if I can locate him.
