  1. Don't quote me on this but I think the part number could be P3K 253 031.   Have a read here - http://www.clubpolo.co.uk/forum/index.php?showtopic=305613
  2. My brother used a charger cooler setup on G60 Corrado for many years before we transferred the engine etc into our Mk1 Golf a few years ago. The initial setup in the Corrado comprised of a charge cooler which I believe originally came from Jabba Sport, a 12v electric water pump that is usually found in caravans, a Polo radiator and a header tank; and all the silicone hoses. Effectively the charge cooler radiator sits in front of the main radiator and the air passing through it keeps the water cool; although a 60/40 mix of anti-freeze and water keeps it pretty cool anyhow. The header tank just had a plastic cap wedged in the top because there is no pressure involved with this kind of setup. The 12v electric water pump was not ideal. Yes it is very cheap and it would last upwards of 3 months of continuous use. Something the manufacturers of them don’t believe it will do. After something more reliable my brother eventually bought a Pace Products electric brushless water pump. I can’t remember the exact price but it was just over £100 approx 6-7 years ago and still works to this day. A picture of this original setup can be found here: [url="http://vwtechnic.com/images/images%20large/mk1g60-1l.jpg"]http://vwtechnic.com/images/images%20large/mk1g60-1l.jpg[/url] For the Mk1 setup, we didn’t want to run the original header tank that was fitted in the Corrado. Apart from not looking that good, we had nowhere to fit it. The Polo radiator was also rusty and needed replacing. So we killed two birds with one stone and fitted a top fill radiator instead. Again this mounts in front of the main engine radiator. The Pace water pump is mounted as low as physically possible to pump the water more easily. As far as I know, you could probably run any size of radiator for the charge cooler. As already mentioned it needs to allow water to flow efficiently but for the physical size of it, anything that fits the given space should do. The Polo rad on the Corrado above is a lot smaller than the top fill we have in the Mk1. The top fill needed to be longer in our case because the pipes needed to come down the side of the other rad. See picture below. In the Corrado you don’t have much space in front of the original radiator and therefore you need something smaller. [IMG]http://i362.photobucket.com/albums/oo67/vwtechnic/Mk1%20Golf%20G60/448e73a6.jpg[/IMG] Overall all though the setup we have is getting fairly old now. It still works and therefore I don’t need to change anything but if I was designing a new system then there are newer components that are maybe better than what we have. I came across the following page which may be of use - http://www.mez.co.uk/turbo13.html
  3. I went down the top fill rad option a few years ago. It looks a lot neater than an inline filler and as everybody has said it is a lot less hassle wondering if you have enough water in the system.

  4. The screws have a part number of N 01397520. The description tells me that they are 4.8 x 19mm. The washers that go with them are N 01152321.
  5. You mean this one? - [url="http://www.dubforce.net/forums/index.php?showtopic=22687"]http://www.dubforce.net/forums/index.php?showtopic=22687[/url]
  6. Wheeler Dealers is always a good laugh!! Top Gear will make a Christmas special before returning in Jan 2013. The new series of Fifth Gear is looking good so far and it is good to see Jason Plato back again. I also watch Top Gear America which is quite good. Its good to see other makes of car and the different surroundings. I still watch Top Gear UK, just out of habit, but I do feel it has gone downhill in recent years. [url="http://www.finalgear.com/"]http://www.finalgear.com/[/url] I have recently started to watch some of the videos from Drive on YouTube. There is a good selection of stuff and is worth a punt, especially if you have ten minutes to kill. [url="http://www.youtube.com/user/drive"]http://www.youtube.com/user/drive[/url]
  7. I thought you could still buy these from the main dealer - Part number is 191 819 415C [url="http://www.dubforce.net/forums/index.php?showtopic=21017"]http://www.dubforce.net/forums/index.php?showtopic=21017[/url]

  11. These are called 'stone chip guards' according to ETKA fitted to the Rallye only. Part numbers are 191 807 633 01C (left) and 191 807 634 01C (right). Both made obsolete in 2002. The grommets (357 853 586B) and rivets (N 038 550 1) that hold them on are both avalible at 46p and 11p each respectively. -Ben

  13. I have had a look at my previous posts to see what code is used there now and it appears that it now uses the 'direct link for layout pages' as per photobucket. For the picture below I used the following link (minus the underscore after http - this is only there so you can see the full link) which I got from your original post via the RSS feed. http_://i52.photobucket.com/albums/g20/bugwhizz/Janspeed workshop visit pics/janspeedexhausts60.jpg
  14. I have no experience in fitting them but have found this thread
