    Default "The Seal" aka Polo MK IV 1.8T swap

    First things first: I'm Steffen, 24, and i live and work in Wolfsburg, Germany.

    This thread is about my 2004 Volkswagen Polo 9n (MK IV) aka "The Seal" (u will get it someday ).
    It's my very first car, which i got from my grandpa before he passed away.

    This is a sample pic how it looked like when i got it in 2007.
    Back then it had a regular 1.4 16V engine with 75hp.


    Because i went to school and used to be completly broke all the time the first mods kept waiting until 2008.

    Got me my first set of wheels. Some Rial Porto Black in 7,5"x17" with 205/40R17 crappy Maxxis tires... God these tires were aweful ^^, a badgeless Grill (what was i thinking???) but no upgrade on the suspensin Bus-Mode on
    Then i bought a set of -35mm Eibach Pro Street springs . Still nowhere near low ^^
    No pics from this time, cause my old laptop kicked the bucket including all picures.


    After that i bought a set of custom made black front lights.



    Ready for season 2009 i installed Polo 9n3 GTI side-skirts, a Polo Blue Motion rear bumper spoiler, custom black Polo 9n3 rearlights and a smoked 3rd breaklight.



    Time to put some music in the trunk . Fitted a 12" Chorus Line woofer and a Kenwood amp under a cover plate. (Sorry for the crappy cellphone pic)




    For 2010 i customized the front an installed a Votex-front-spoiler. Bought DTS-Line coil-over (same as the KW Var. 1 coil-overs) too and gave it some stance ^^








    2011:

    Changed sideskirts from GTI to Votex and got my hands on the rear bumper for the japanese polo (small plate area).With the small license plate area there came a new license plate (GF-T8), but i later changed it back to my old one. On the inside i got myself a nice Audi A3 S-Line shifting knob, painted my center-console in matt-silver to match my steering wheel and wrapped some interieur-parts in carbon-vinyl.




    During the season i swapped my Rial Portos for a set of brandnew Rial Porto Black (8"x17") with 215/35R17 Hankook tires.













    Pics from my car on the visitor parking space for the 2011 XS Carnight in Dresden



    Changed the location of my license plate multipel times until i was happy with it.

    Quick engine bay pic with painted engine cover and coolant / washer tank cap and strut brace.

    Also took some shoots on the famous parking lot "Tor Ost" which is at the eastern gate of the Volkswagen facility.





    Little rolly with some friends on our way to a local meet.

    2011 ends on a good note with big plans for the winter season. Here ist my Polo as it looked at the end of 2011 with the Seat Ibiza SC of my best friend.


    Which brings uns to 2012

    I always wanted to have a "little" more power for the polo. To achieve this goal i took the polo on a little trip back in febuary to the boys of XBM down in Krefeld.



    Over the next few month the polo's original 1.4 16V BKY got swapped with a 1.8T 20V BJX from a wrecked Polo 9n3 GTI i bought from a guy i knew from the polo-forums.

    With the engine swap there went some other goodies into the polo, such as:
    - XBM Stage 2 software
    - KW Variante 2 INOX (XBM Edition)
    - PU-set from Super Pro (anti lift)
    - 312mm Polo GTI CUP breaks (EBC Black Dash with EBC Yellow Stuff)
    - Polo GTI rear breaks (EBC Black Dash with EBC Yellow Stuff)
    - handcrafted Hiller exhaust 70mm from Turbo (Downpipe, 200 sportkat, 2x70mm 45° RS4 look)
    - Sachs sportclutch
    - Forge intake, BOV, wastegate, etc.
    - Pipercross airfilter
    and much more good stuff

    With all these mods the Polo took a dyno run with around 212hp

    The overall look for 2012 was this the same. Except from the big frontbreaks there was no clues on the power the polo hab by now


    And now some shots of vw shows i visited with the buddies from our club 38Motion...

    And for the end of this update a quick pic of my current rims as i was bored of the old Rial Nogaros... Some ASA AS2 in 7,5x17... I had some BBS RS2 layin around, but couldn't find the right valves to mount them yet, as these are out of production and very rare these days...

    o, time for a little update.The Polo survived the roadtrip down to Wörthersee (the week before the actual meet). 2.500km in total for the trip. That's why i thought i might share some pics with you.

    Departure on 30.04. round 10.15pm (Selfmade fullbra looks like granny's undwear :p)


    The Polo was pretty packed with a bunch of stuff and nicely low because of that. We stayed at a hotel on the Techelsberg am Wörthersee. Really nice place. Beautiful view. Even cooler that we could wash the cars on the parking space of the hotel and had a place for some little repairs in an old shed. :top: :top: :top: So first of all unload all the stuff and clean of the traces of the trip.




    Some pics from the infamous Turbokurve am Faaker See:




    We sat in a pizza restaurant in Velden, when suddenly the mintgreen 964 Rotiform Porsche 911 from Brain pulled up right next to my Polo on the Parkinglot. :thumbsup: Weather was shitty that day :.



    The GTI-monument in Reifnitz. Volkswagens booth was already under construction as you can see.



    After an awesome week with countless beautiful and breathtaking cars and meeting some really cool people we headed home for Wolfsburg. Last stop on Austrian territory.




    http://vimeo.com/76413209


    The last pic is a quick snap from last weekend's tour to the Weserbergland.



    And i tried Plasti Dip for one or two weeks XD

    So that's nearly the current state of the Polo. Next mods will be interieur parts from the GTI, black headliner and some other stuff. It's also time for TÜV...

    Season slowly comes to an end, so i thought it would be time to give you guys an update.

    Lot of stuff happend this year. Went to awesome meets like Wörthersee, XS Carnigt in Dresden, Flachland Water & Air and last but not least the Baltic BBQ Carnight. Had an amazing time an met some pretty laid-back dudes. Overall a good season for an enthusiast like me But enough of the big words... Next up are couple of snapshots and videos said meets.

    First up XS Carnight in Dresden (maybe the biggest daymeeting allover europe). I was allowed to display my Polo at the outdoor area of Dresden Messe. It was an honour for me.

    Next up was the roadtrip to the Flachland Water & Air near Cuxhaven.

    Propably the last event for me this year was the Baltic BBQ Carnight. Loacation was pretty rad. Former DDR/soviet-airbase near the sea. Complete with abandoned buildings and old signs and stuff :thumbsup:


    The VIP-Indoor-area was inside an former aircraft-hangar. Awesome ::thumbsup:

    Hope you like it.

    Do you have any pics of your trunk sound system? I never noticed there was actually a sub and amp here:

    How much did you pay for the engine swap? I plan to get this done in my A2 too in the future (I guess 2-3 years) but all I got were numbers about 9000€ which is ridicolous.


    Oh, and subbed btw. Sweet Polo!

    Hey, to be honest the ridicolous number you were told is more or less correct.
    My budget was some like this:

    - complete package with original Polo GTI engine, turbo, trans, ecu, intercooler, harness, front and rear break components... In good shape around 4.000€ (if you are lucky to get one package, because if you gather the part one by one it will be more expensive) You could take the 1.8T from an other model like Golf MKIV or Audi A3, but then you need to check which parts you can fit and combine to make it work. Biggest problem with combined parts from mixed cars will be the TÜV approval.

    - KW V2 inox coils for Polo GTI 1.200€
    - Audi TT 8n front breaks ca. 200€
    - good break discs and pads (front and rear) 700€
    - exhaust system (not original of course) between ca. 1.500€
    - ECU modifications (software) ca. 500€
    - new plugs, filters, oil, seals and so on... ca. 400€
    - costs for TÜV (depends on where you do it) ca. 300€
    - and more cash for various other bits and pieces...

    = 8.800€ and this is without any money for worktime in a shop or so...

    The bra on the hood is just for protection while on the way to events. On some of the event pics it's on because i was lazy . The other stuff is just tape to cover the rest of the bumber from stonechips. I put that on if i have to drive far for a meeting or so.

    If you guys want some german numberplate, i maybe able to get them for you and send them to the states or whereever.

    Damn, looks like it has been a while since my last post... *blow off dust*

    To get things back rolling, here's a pic of my car on last years XS Carnight in Dresden.




    After the Baltic BBQ Carnight and Flachland Water & Air there weren't any more bit meets in 2013. So when the end of October came my car went into hibernation.

    But because winter season is wrenching season i invited some friends to help me











    Did some mods on the inside and outside. A updated mod list will follow down below.

    So when April of this year kicked in, it was time to get the Polo back in the road. Fresh Service (oil, filters, plugs, sensor) and off we go. On the first week of april we hab some friends from Berlin over at Wolfsburg to modify an fellow Polo on the inside as well as audi wise. After 4 hard days of work we finished saturday night just in time to get the cars washed and head up to Lüneburg for a little meet. Unfortunatly it started to rain as we left Wolfsburg an continued all the way up to Lüneburg. Thats why the cars are so f...in dirty on the following pics.







    The other silver Polo is our friend Bastian from Stade whom we met at the Baltic BBQ last year.



    Because of the shitty weather the day after we went to Lüneburg it was car wash time again. You can see how excited i am to clean it for the second time in under 24hours ;-)





    Why the wash? - Because a couple of friends showed up at our shop an we had a little shoot. Props to Eddi from EBC Photography and Tommy from Low Factory for the pics. The whole week was a blast









    Artsy stuff





    It has breaks





    And because i'm a total retard i ruin the flow of nicly done pics by placing some shitty cellphone pics from my engine bay and my current interior here. *let the **** begin*





    But as i promised earlier here is a updated mod list for you guys:

    - 7,5x17" ET 38 ASA AS2 Gunmetal gray with 215/35 R17 Hankook S1 Evo

    Thanks. I really like the Tourenwagen / Cup-Racing-style of the ASA. They are similar to the Volkswagen Aristo rims of the Golf .:R32 MKIV or the OZ Superturismo. I'm thinking about going for 18" inch next season.

    Thx. I call it like that because of the little white plush seal on the rear view mirror. It belonged to my granddad and it had been in his former cars and the Polo for years. Always reminds me of him, when i drive the Polo around.

    This post is under construction... Will finish it over the day

    Alright, so the 2014 season is coming to an end... This year had a lot of ups and downs for the polo... sadly downs for the most part...

    But lets start with the good parts. Had an awesome year with epic meets me and my friends attended. Made some new friends, saw cool cars.

    Greatest thing ever was, that i was invited to poland for the 7th VAG Event (organised by Wolfsgruppe)

    Ready for the road trip to poland



    Quick fender work on the way to poland, because tire was rubbing.






    Hotel in poland








    Awesome video of the VAG Event 2014 in Zerkow, Poland.
    vimeo.com/100635359




    Wolfsgruppe / VAG Event shirt and Static Energy cans


    Some final adjustments were needed before the departure from poland, because my exhaust was banging.

    Headed home with some new friends from Berlin.




    Short stop in Berlin to drop off my buddy Tommy from Low Factory.


    This meet was super awesome and i hope i can be part of it again in the future.

    We visited the XS Carnight, which was held in the Olympic Stadion in Berlin this year.


    "It's forbidden by law to place any objects near the building" XD


    I was also invited to the Baltic BBQ 2014, which was held in the same former East-german-air-base again.

    Baltic BBQ 2014






    Some footage from the Baltic BBQ

    http://vimeo.com/102318889

    This year me and my friends visited the big "Mega-Treffen" of the www.polo9n.info -forums (was my 4th time since 2009)

    Now onto the sad part. The polo had quite a rough season. The gearbox of the original parts car must have been slightly damaged because it was leaking oil since the engine swap had been done. So after two summers driving around with a slightly leaking gearbox i decided to get a refurbished on to be safe for good.

    Right when the gearbox exchange was round the corner my oil pressure dropped and VVT-Unit started making nasty noises which let to a gearbox exchange with some side work like:

    - new timing belt and water pump
    - SAI delete
    - new VVT-Unit
    - new oil pan seal
    - new valve cover seal
    - fresh oil and filter (the oil had been changed back in april -.-)
    - and so on...




    I used the chance and painted my valve cover in gunmetal grey.





    I really thank my best friend Daniel for doing this shit. Wouldn't have made it without you.

    After that was sorted out we were of to our trip to poland. The new "refurbished" gearbox was a piece of shit. It made even more noises than my old "damaged" gear box and if you tried to get out of reverse it got stuck and you had to get the gear out with force.

    I called the company and demanded another gearbox. They delivered one, that was even worse. Looked like new, all clean and shiny, but looks don't always tell the whole story.
    The second "new" gearbox did make even worse noise than the previous and altough the reverse gear on this one worked find all the other gears were sketchy as f***...

    After nearly flipping the sh** for getting an other even more fucked up gearbox from the company, i contacted them again and made the offer to drive to their shop and get a gearbox swap done by them so the couldn't complain about any possible mistakes.
    They answered that they were not interested, because they "checked" the first gearbox i returned to them and stated that the problems had to be caused by my car, because the gearbox was "fine".

    Their offer war to give me back my old gearbox and my money in return for their piece of crap. I accepted. So last week an employee of the company came to bring me my old gearbox and my money back... Long story short... The gave me some old rusted out broken gearbox from another car with fake gearbox numbers stamped to it and my money and drove of... Now i have to find a wey to get a working gearbox for my car to get it back rolling again.

    Oh yeah if that sh** is not enough it looks and sounds like my turbo is leaving for good too... FML...

    So to have the Polo back on the road next year i have to save money for a gearbox and if everything wents south a new turbo and all the stuff that comes with it.

    Sorry for the long post.

    Will put a picture of the nasty greased gearbox i got last week in here for sh**s and giggles.

    Oh, i almost forgot i needed to buy a new japanese rear bumper right before Flachland 2.0 because a stupid woman didn't pay attention to her surroundings while she tried to park her Touran and destroyed my bumper. It's all fixed now with a new bumper, but this took away all my savings for a bigger intercooler -.-

    It's that time of the year again... The Polo is in hibernation after receiving a completly rebuild and modified gearbox.

    So i'm back with the Seat again ^^
    This was how it looked for the winter season 2012/2013


    I realised that i missed to show how it looked last winter. Refurbished a set of Exip 2000 wheels in 7x16" 36 offset and wrapped them with some Michilin winter tires. Painted them in four different colors. Because i can





    Also sourced a cheap red Seat Ibiza Curpa Heckblende and a Cupra Rear wing.



    So fast forward to this year. Because the front fenders were already starting to rust again after only one summer in hibernation i decided to go down in ratlook territory and do rusted fenders.





    Fitted power windows and mirrors from a Polo donor car.

    Will post extereur/intereur pics with a decent cam soon. For now a only have these shitty cellphone-pics.
