Motto: Is it plugged in?
Looking back wish I had done a from start to finish on this,

Bought the car a year ago at a local dealer was running a health 192bhp at the time. Many monies later and lots of work later. We are here.

Just thought I would share the build on here.

Modifications:
IS38 Turbo (From Golf R)
Wagner Comp Intercooler
KW V3 Coilovers
Quaife LSD
Sachs SMF And Sintered Clutch
GFB DV+
OEM RS3 Coil
NGK Comp Spark Plugs
Spaced 15mm Front 20mm Rear
Racingline enlarged Turbo Elbow And Golf R Breather
Racingline induction kit
4-Tech Short Shifter
Scorpion turbo back exhaust

Now mapped by VAG specialists PSI Tuning running 354bhp

Next Plans:
HPFP From Golf R
Golf R Injectors

This should see around 450bhp. But would struggle to get that down so might be limited by FWD. Ultimately it's pretty crazy even now and many ask me why not just buy a golf r. I always reply with the faces of people expecting a little polo shocked by how crazy it is.

Should probably invest in a professional photographer.

Thank you for taking a look at my expensive pride and joy

I would recommend a LSD mate, brilliant car but any car of that power will have trouble putting it down. I not long ago had a 2014 fiesta st-2 and built it up from standard to be pushing out 336bhp. That could have done with an LSD too but ended up getting rid

Looking nice man! People always underestimate these little Polos. The 1.8T can take a lot before needing a full forge build.

Looks clean but I think a nice set of wheels are the only thing missing!

Thanks man,

This is the 1.8TSI Makes Very Similar numbers to the 2.0TSI in the Mk7.5

Forging only needed circa 600hp I'm told.

Absolutely mental how well engineered modern day engines are.
