EHXUAST MANI is cracked... I was hoping the leak was coming from the downpipe... But nope... Now what do i do ****.

Buy an S3/Cupra R and break it out and take the parts i need? (K04 swap)

Buy a tube style manifold for stock k03s?

Go big turbo and manifold on low boost (300hp) till i can build an engine

Go big turbo and buy an AGU engine to build, hate myself and go for the 600hp mark...

I wasnt ready to go big turbo yet... I needed more time damnit but now gives me a small reason to something else because the turbo and mani has to come off... I dont suppose i can find a used k03s hybrid somewhere cheap?

Hey there! Toledo owner here (Leon mk1 with a big ass LOL).

Just to give some ideas, I share my wishlist. Coming soon...

- new high end paint job (black + subtle gold reflections)
- complete turbo-back exhaust by Don Silencioso (ROAR). I currently have just axle-back and hell it sounds awesome.
- custom steering wheel with Cupra logo (manufactured in Germany by some folks who sell in eBay)
- Sparco seats.
- custom titanium shift knob by Lathe Werks
- turbo swap (K04 - 064 the one used in current 2.0 TFSI). This implies new injectors, fuel pump and whatnot. I have been recently OWNED by a 1.8T Ibiza and my pride is wounded LOL...
- Full LED headlights and tail lights (not sure if this is even possible)

Damn this is for sure an expensive hobby LOL.

All done apart from the rack end as it did not turn up so tomorrow wait for that to turn up and fit and track it rear anti roll bar was fun to fit and getting the rear axel bushes in had to get the tool out to push them in so they lied about no special tools needed lol
Getting car parts is fun

Done almost 1k in car since engine and box transplant no problems cars running well and handling is spot on the coil overs and upgraded antiroll bars front and rear have made a real difference to how it rides
