My Ibiza 1.8T Sleeper

Post by bizaboy » Fri Oct 19, 2012 7:59 pm

It all started 3 years ago...

Image

A 1.4 SE Seat Ibiza 6L Mk4 in Imperial Blue, bought as my first car as a nice little run about. Went through many little modifications and many...many subwoofers (as all 17 year olds seem to :lol: )

Image

Then after landing a rather cushty job at Millbrook Proving Ground the plan was hatched to give it a new heart, I didn't fancy trying anything too special so found myself a Cat C Ibiza Cupra donor car and had Midlands VW slip the low mileage 1.8 20v T (180hp) engine in my SE.

Image

She grew Lenso BSX 16x7.5J alloys in white and chrome at the same time

From then she's had a Pipercross induction kit, Milltek de-cat exhaust system and APR Stage 2 map, alongside a nicely stripped out interior complete with OMP bucket seats and TRS harnesses. Running 240hp now...

Full Spec:
1.8 20vT 180hp engine,
APR Stage 2 Map,
Pipercross Induction Kit,
Milltek DeCat Exhaust System,
OMP ARS bucket seats,
Forge Splitter D-V,
Lenso BSX wheels,
Yokohama S Drive tyres,
Fabia VRS front brake setup,
Ibiza Cupra Brembo rear brake setup,
JOM Coilovers,
Seat Sport intercooler.

The next steps:
APR Stage 3 Turbo Kit (GT28RS),
APR R1 Recirc Valve,
K-Sport 330mm 8 Pot Front Brake Kit,
Rota Torque 17x8J wheels (for brake clearance),
Federal 595 tyres all round.

Thankies for looking, c+c appreciated :)
