I like cars, photography and video games. My favourite car of all time is the Mitsubishi Eclipse 2G. #Forever22? Romania is my city. No licence because i'm in driving school. No car because i'm broke.
On my way to get my licence and a Golf 4 VR5 4Motion.

They literally own the Evo Magazine and AutoExpress. I doubt they are strughling with money.
Like, i dunno what’s going on behind the curtains.
But still… :/
The original 1991 seems so much better tho, even without subtitles. It’s a 4 part movie, i suppose the whole anime was translated to live action.
How much would it improve emissions if i were to EFI swap it, install electronic ignition, buy modern pistons with thin rings (because those seal the oil away better and have less friction), modern air filter, plasma core spark plugs and a high flow modern catalyser?
Could it reach an Euro 3 or 4 standard?
Would power also increase?
Gonna change it soon. I wonder how i can remix it. 🤔
I think the fault is split 80-20 driver-car.
The car might have some kinks, but it’s kinda your job to know and avoid them.
Polo 6R 1.4L TDI. That weird 3-cyl diesel.
The turbo broke and there were bits of the rotor in the intercooler. Installed a new EGR too.
Put the cat back inside, then the tubes, checked the air filter (which has a rather annoying enclosure with 11 screws… Eleven reasons to get an intake from K&N 😂), put the intercooler (which is so tiny, like, omg) and reconnected everything.
Installed the front driveshaft back and finally the anti-roll bar.
Bippity, boppity, boop. The car is back together.
Also, obviously i didn’t do all of that alone. Someone told me what to do and most of the stuff was not done by me, obviously. (Mostly because it was not that interesting, only connecting sensors, screwing screws and whatever.)
Also, you can’t really put the cat back inside by yourself, because someone has to push the engine forward. It’s pretty tight in there.
It was pretty fun. But, damn, you get your hands dirty really fast. Also, way easier than i expected. There isn’t really any room to guess. Everything aligns itself basicaly.
At first, there was a scary amount of disconnected wires. But when you look closer at them, they can only go in one place because they have very specific lengths and shapes you can’t misplace. Wires were my worst nightmare abour cars, really. I didn’t think i could be able to put them back where they came from if i ever fixed any car.
But, yeah, you just can’t misplace them apparently.
Connectors are also, i think, color coded. But i might be wrong.
