My aim is to make the most of the frisky 1.6 which is happiest when screaming at 7000revs.
Mk1 close ratio gear box fitted
GTI roll bars and exhaust fitted
And a mix and match sports suspension
All on when I bought her
Image
First to go was the old fuel lines most were perished and the clear tubes looked terrible. Red fuel lines thanks to work.
Damaged driving lamps are gone and a hand made fitted to replace them and the old grill. Grill thanks to work

The airbox was chopped open while i was building my own intake (pics to follow)

These are my plans for my 87 Roccer

Damaged driving lamps are gone and a hand made grill fitted to replace them

Old air box removed and a custom intake fitted,
we start with a 200mmi/d flexible hose fixed behind the grill, that feeds a 100mmi/d PiperX cone filter fitted to a 100mm ally pipe in to a 100/76 mm reducer through ally pipe to the carb where it goes in to an 76/89mm reducer on to the carb. All thanks to regalsmotorsport.co.uk
Fitted brembo max solid disks on front with EBC green pads. Thanks brembo direct and EBC direct
Pics to come when i get home :clap: :clap:

Ecotek valve fitted in the vacuum line from manifold.
I did have a piperX breather on the cam box but the rubber split the same is happening to the filter so I may replace the filter with a 200mmod filter on a 100mmod alloy neck.

I’m going to move the battery to behind the passenger seat all enclosed in a box.
Fitting of an oil cooler is on the cards,
a Newman cam is definite
and a good tidy of the engine bay moving things about.

Eventually we will have a black paint job, black Weller wheels, smoked windows, BKS Tuning.com tail lights and front indicators
A jetex twin pipe Exhaust
and a full set of sports suspension

As for the interior I’m not sure yet
