Hi all,

Ive been on this forum a few times and thought I'd sign up and share my current project thus far.

This is my third MK4 golf I own a pd130 5dr at the moment and owned a 1.6 petrol before and had few cars in-between I just find the MK4 to be relatively easy to work on also to get hold of upgrades and oem parts.

Now I've driven the 4 motion variant I don't think I'll ever look at FWD the same tbh. I honestly think it's a car that I could possibly keep hold of for ever.

It is a budget build at the moment and I'm lucky to have the opportunity to complete the bulk of the build at my workplace.

I wanted the comfort and practical aspects of the golf along with the relatively cheap tuning capabilities of a 1.8T matched to AWD running gear and independent suspension.

I managed to get hold of a 2.8 vr6 bde engined 4motion 5dr golf with rotten sills due to poor previous repair along with other small body damage issues and maf sensor idle problem 170k miles on the clock.

I then hunted down and found a BAM engined 1.8T quattro 03 plate TT with 90k miles on the clock that had been vandalised smashed back window various dents and damaged clock cluster and it had Ramair filter with heatshield and some sort of forge recirc valve. a4d0746a735d61b0431d542f393a1b84.jpg565460e7b79971c8d7a9f5f764e10086.jpg

So the plan was to use as much of the TT parts that I could swap over, obviously it being the lower milage and more performance orientated car it has lower suspension, quick turn rack, bigger drilled and grooved front brakes along with other bits and bobs.

So for ease of disassembly I removed the engine/box while still attached to the subframe steering rack and shafts hubs and brakes exhaust upto cat all in one from both cars as shown in photos attached.

Following this the rears of both cars were dissasembled in the same way. I then started collecting all service, timing and following tuning parts for the build:

Heat wrap
3" downpipe de cat
Ko4 hybrid billet turbo
High flow exhaust manifold
Fresh stock fuel pump
Bosh 550cc injectors
Braided brake lines
FMIC kit

I've deleted the AC/evap/sai/n249 and put a shorter aux belt on the block and good job done the timing belt As the old one thread was showing through could of popped bringing it down aha.

I've re furbed the brakes and made a start on some of the body work issues.

I've got hold of both the wiring diagrams and sat down with a highlighter and not come to a exact conclusion I'm using bam ECU and the two looms attached to it.

The two points the looms connect to the car is the fusebox behind the windscreen wiper motor and 16 pin connector by the battery. ab0ea2c61cc436ba9cd87c4454ccd15c.jpge3ed4f5812a11306cd9cf06b02419d1a.jpgfab4b30dd82d0458aee09ef499c580f8.jpg968bf58f697d21614d9160f3d5f0c8b3.jpgc031075907ae5b246a42f4e98b577c53.jpgf561645beb5290f6d0640da7f1a54412.jpg27c694e985f7af83fcc8a458eb1dc66e.jpg4b8b27b5a18ea6bdeb25f27705e27ddf.jpg335ccd8a27137c4ba72cc93aa5278fdf.jpg

So for the next lot of updates I got hold of some 550cc Bosch injectors and adaptors a fresh stock fuel pump and FMIC kit stares lining up exhaust and bypassed cooling fan and external water pump to allow me to get the car home safely without overheating replaced both sills wing and front R32 rep plastic bumper had to cut for piping and rear bumper with 4 mo valance.bbcfbd4ec4ce67420b52b231830b2096.jpg5539d97ea30fc9cc935117e99fa287ea.jpg8b3d30fdb44a0919c33b2796fb00e58a.jpgde444979b98e9583fefa92a4f8c23cc7.jpg0ebcdcba9af36415d326b5919ef38d52.jpg1510cfc15a60c27abf1a981373faf4f9.jpgd59f7b6b3b754b6330bdab90a24fea86.jpg64930a4aeb7565a4ba931b1c3941a7ec.jpg979610280b9f076c08fdf1b99299cdab.jpg

I then swapped over smoothed tailgate from the pd and put in the heated leather recaros I refurbed and started blacking out the headliner pillars weather seals handles and mirrors with dye and paint. Along with making a start on the bad boy bonnet not sure if I'm gonna stay with fibre glass on just do it with sheet metal yet. Blacked out intercooler and piping for a more stealth look.9f7143972daa2e740f22152969418df2.jpg5ccbe8201e1495e1bd88f13a7bf3bac3.jpgf8621611f9263ff4d47a8e6c48f4c247.jpgd38b085d79be2325e98c720e48a9b97a.jpgde2540c66481284a618e35fdef2d6252.jpgdd5c08d853de35c3625e73ab2e89169f.jpg8a45312dc49a926b7fde65559465b09b.jpg

So got most of the headliner/trim back in before I lost patience and before I broke anything also made a start on the slight bad boy bonnet I'm really pleased with the way it's turning out to be fair.

Still royally stuck on wiring trying to get hold of wiring diagrams for both cars so cluster/obd/windows/ fan and water pump will work as it should and won't be able to get it mapped till I've sorted that.

Managed to hard wire by pass the k line straight from ECU to OBD and by doing that it read codes successfully but is not enough to communicate with vcds and obviously is not a permanent fix.

Anyone on here that can email me over PDF format wiring diagrams? Would be much appreciated.32f53b89ca606ea34be05ab2687ed5d9.jpg264edb6b80b7f2da60a738937a2ecdb0.jpga5cab6e5b251a42b18cf992749dbac2f.jpga89384cf05bb3a3ed1e7e6dff7f1e7ee.jpg7d3750f706dc33a979d941aea2477a0c.jpg9fe743d0a86923b7db268f2a950690e2.jpg[img]https://uploads.tapa...dn.com/20190416

I'd have just swapped out the BAM loom for an AUM or similar.

 

What did you do with your old 4mo stuff?  ECU, loom, etc?  I'm looking for many things.  :whistle:

Will that be compatible with the 4mo haldex wiring and wideband and all functions etc ?

And the TT is being built back up with the golf components I've swapped out pal

great project, seeing the BAM engine in a Golf looks so cool, i'd prefer an OEM look myself to the exterior and engine bay but that's just a personal thing, Of all the PQ34 platform cars the s3 (8L) is my favourite but I need the four doors so this for me combines the best of both worlds, keep up the good work

In that case source a Turbo kit for the v6 have it remapped and have a pocket rocket that no-one expects to have that much grunt ;) i wouldn't even make that look nice... i would go for a matt look either white or black...  a shame you actually went with the r32 front you've kinda giving away that it's not your standard car... 

 

keep it up! I like what you are doing on both cars ;)

Thank you and that's kind of why I went for the bam lump and because I need the practicalities of the golf the V6 lump is expensive to turbo would be a weapon tho once done the TT will be up for sale cheap to sell quick and reduce overall cost and space etc would be a good project for someone definitely I really like the R32 look tbh not far to go now

I understand the need for cash to finish one of the cars to your liking.... I once chopped up a complete car sold what I could and weight the remainder in just so that I could recover some of the money to finish my project car...

Ps you can start with a cheap Ebay turbo kit for the v6 with a low pressure turbo... everything in those kits is good quality except for the turbo.... but you can always change that later on. Even with that low pressure turbo on the v6 will see about 325bhp and about double the torque...

Turns it into a right laugh...

But you already said you're needing cash to finish the golf but this is for the person who would like to take the tt on as a project.

Managed to sort the wiring with bare scraps of other people's builds diagrams with different engine codes everything now works apart from Speedo pretty much ready for payday to get mapped

Only engine codes left is for lambda which is not plugged in and will be mapped out and car will run on wideband

Does anyone know if the bam auxiliary water pump kicks in the same times the V6 one does? At the moment just got it on a switch rather be safe than sorry with cooling the turbo

Got hold of a Bora highline cluster and a 2016 focus RS genuine cat back exhaust with the motor so chopped the tips off ready to be welded onto my aftermarket cat back and have the tip with the motor on straight piped on a button.

Also looking at the eBay mk5 look rear bumper to go with tips and modernise the rear.

Seen some switchback sweeping led tail lights might look into them too at some point.

I have a video of the car now boosting properly bar map its on my insta musa_akz feel free to follow 5cf0cbc67b2c8e50127175d4668947f8.jpgef7fe9d94fb80bf796279776fe228e20.jpg

I was getting fumes in the engine bay and through the vents so I simplified the vacuum lines under inlet manifold and pcv lines to down by the subframe

that in turn seemed to make my brake pedal feel better maybe due stronger engine vacuum to brake servo

I also fitted a factory working one way valve from the n249 I think to the evap fuel line where I removed the canister so should only let air in and keep fumes in and stop fuel from evaporating.

The Bora clocks arrived but as they are not coded yet the comfort features will not work untill then I swapped over the TT needle covers over from the TT clocks just for a different nice touch. I do need to research how to retrieve skc codes

I've then got hold of some red seatbelts while waiting for them to arrive I thought I'd practice getting out the middle 3 point seatbelt on my old fabric rear backrest noting the backing plate is very heavy as it's double skinned I may remove excess while I'm in there 232badbcf9b91fe5213c0b36dada0858.jpg7d128b061020e57548ad8a791fb01cb2.jpg5b4a3dcc90ad5a4899f49ea4351d8dd7.jpg3ab24c79d80d85678dc587d435e514d4.jpg8b20193a93d4955ecf71dcb31014a444.jpg99e88bceb9bc1b85ca49d8f29e7c32ea.jpg

So while I was adapting the seatbelts to fit and getting access to the middle rear belt I thought I'd try shed some weight off the rear seat but I can't get the rear belt to release and also the backrest has to much flex so I most likely will have to reinforce it with some more material.

I got access to the t14 connector wiring diagrams from both cars and have taped them up for now.

I thought I'd clean up the look of the bay abit more got the wire wheel on the throttle body.

Removed cat back system to replace with as much as possible with the RS exhaust and have it higher mounted so it doesn't scrape and fabricate the tips and motor into it.

Finally got access to the haldex ECU on the rear diff to find out I have the circlip type of insert so I've ordered the 50/50 sport insert to be fitted while I've got the rear in the air I should service the haldex.2c92b412e8ac19f11fb6392abfe9fafc.jpg55ff53df16e5a7cf25031ee6d9613a68.jpg65c10707f96846caed184d8efa29bc10.jpg5b0b40bb00c4d0b582cb7cd4a859c63e.jpgcd7b094b334819de0b0bbd6672168d1a.jpg465edd5e2a2c96ec6296ef7bfcdcd5ae.jpg4b8dca6a3ac31f0ac4997136e363337f.jpg829dbca1444e240c3ef56863cf3cd8b8.jpg66553e5531ab290535fc786f9b9c74a4.jpg

I wished i had a garage and some extra cash so i could build my own 4 motion... one difference it would be a r32 twin turbo setup... but i don't have the space and lack the funds... so these type of threads are some what helping to keep that itch at bay :D
