    Syphon's MK5 SEAT Ibiza CUPRA Black 1.8T - pocket rocket

    First time I've jumped off the PCP/Leasing wagon in a long time, but as the MK4 CUPRA Leon petrol hatch has been pushed back, likely to March and I've been carless since handing my CUPRA 300 back in March this year, the wife was going to kill me if I didn't get a car and kept needing to borrow...
  2. Ibiza FR 1.8t BJX Engine replacement

    Alright people, I recently acquired a cheap MK4/6L Ibiza FR 1.8t with a BJX lump in it. It’s showing signs of head gasket failure and doesn’t seem financially feasible to rebuild it. BJX lumps aren’t too common as far as I can see on selling sites, is it possible to do a straightforward swap...
  3. Smoking on downshift and decceleration

    Hey, Ibiza cupra 1.8T BBU engine. Smoke coming out of the exhaust mostly after downshifting within lower range of RPM (1500 to 2000). Lets say I am cruising at 5th gear, letting the car slow down by itself, downshifting to 4th, stopping at red light, pressing the throttle slightly and white...

    Suction Jet 06A-133-751 - Replace or Repair?

    Hi All, After 9 years of ownership the suction jet assembly on my 1.8T has finally sprung a leak and I'm getting the usual System Lean errors in VCDS as well as a nice hissing sound. So the question is obviously replace or repair? The best price I've seen for the full assembly online is about...
  6. Standard air box!! Ibiza 6l 1.8t

    New here. Does anyone know where I can find a standard air box for my 1.8t? I feel I would rather have a standard box with cold air feed and decent panel filter rather than the Cheap filter the previous owner put on. Thanks in advance, mike.
  7. Returning suspension to standard (Cupra 6L)

    I've been sourcing parts to revert my Cupra back to standard ride height/suspension and ditching the coilovers. The number of those narrow 'dome' speed bumps appearing my way are making my commute unbearable. Tbh the coilovers were already on the car when I bought it so no major worries in...
  8. Please help seat Leon Cupra mk1 (180bhp)

    hi all I seem to have a problem, Now this could be completely normal but I doubt it as never experienced it before.

    Hi All, My first major post, I know this sort of thing has been discussed before and I've done quite a bit of reading. I'm really looking for someone with first hand experience to give some advice, thanks in advance! So I got my Cupra for what I think was a decent price in the knowledge that...

  11. Steaming 1.8 20VT?

    I've got a 2004 1.8 20VT FR (from new) with 32,000 miles on the clock. Last Thursday evening I parked after a short 10 min journey, only to see steam wafting through the beams of my headlights before I shut off. Rather concerned I jumped out and looked at the front and under the bonnet - but it...
  12. DPJ's GTRS Eliminator Install and Development

    Saturday 16/06/07 I ground the bottom left corner off my ATP manifold. Then, I thought I'd bolt the turbo to the manifold to get an idea of the size of it and exactly where it would sit in the engine bay. A quick peek down the back of the engine made me realise it would be well...
