  1. Thanks yes Im keeping the original colour as I think it suits it. yes that is a Bolf I have had that about 10 years, it was my first vw and and built it from scratch. its been sat up for the last 2 years and don't have the heart to get rid of it to the annoyance of the mrs
  2. Hi been lurking for a few months reading through other peoples builds and just being generally nosy. Thought it was about time I put up a thread and some pictures. not to sure what my plans are as such yet, as I have wanted a corrado for a while so I'm just enjoying it at the moment. I bought the car in July this year (2021) for the bargain price of 4.5k which I thought was good as they seem to go for a bit more usually. the car came with a tonn of history including the original receipt from VW. it also had a A4 size book with hand written notes in it so I know the car has been looked after. It has some small patches of surface rust around the windscreen and unfortunately a hole in the wing, however all this is now getting sorted as its getting fully sprayed as the paint has faded dramatically. before I bought it the chap fully serviced it including cam belt, he also had the charger fully rebuilt at JABBA. Its a stage 4 charger with a 68mm bully which makes 14.5 psi lovely. Sits on KW coilers and has Libra technics engine mounts, there's also a few subtle mods like the side plastics have been smoothed out, fully debadged, rear wiper deleted and it also seems to had an entire front end swap from the later to the new style. Which tbh not many people would notice unless they are fully corrado nuts. I would like to get it onto a rolling road as it is supposed to achieve around the 190-200bhp and in all fairness it does shift.
  3. cheers for that that's perfect I have pipe work but will check to see if the duct is still there
  4. I'm getting myself a standard side mount intercooler for my G60 as mine has been removed before I had bought it. are there any diagrams on how to fit it ie where it bolts on and where the pipe work runs any help will be great thanks

    Yea just a tad beetle and corrado I have only owned about 3-4 weeks. Beetle been locked away for 25 years and I bought it and booked it in for a mot as it looks solid apart from a bit of paint. The corrado has its issues which I’m going to slowly sort but it’s great fun to drive and it’s booked in for paint in November. Main issue is the idle. Previous owner said something about the isv?? I don’t know anything about these engines so I’m slowly learning Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Just signed up so thought I would say hi, bought my first ever corrado about 3 weeks ago, it’s a G60 with a stage 4 charger (rebuilt bu jabbasport) 68mm pulley and runs at 14.5 psi (is this good I have no idea). Been around vws for a few years and this add to my collection of a mk1 golf gti, mk1 caddy, mk4 golf, 1972 1600 beetle and a daily touran. Do have others but won’t bore you with them lol. Anyway I’m sure will will pop up asking questions and doing a lot of searching Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
