To cut a long story short.

At the end of June I put the uno in for the MOT and it failed not on much had to swop the ECU and clean some eaths as the fan didn't come on and the engine over heated.
So when all the jobs was done I then when back and it paas so got the tax and went for a drive happy days.

But on the Friday befor the retro show the uno broke down, Dad give me a tow home and we looked over the engine and turned out to be the fuel pump relay, so fitted a new one then it started Very Happy 
I then went back to Mum & Dads to clean the uno for the retro show and on the way there it broke down again Mad 
Dad towed me to his and set out to find out what was up this time. Spent all day Friday & Satarday with on luck.
On the tuseday a mate come over and had a look and in the end he adjusted the fpr and it started up, run like shit but it was running.
So new fuel pump was needed. I've now got a 044 bosch pump not fitted yet as I've stared over jobs on the uno, hoping to have it fitted in the week.

Some pictures of the uno



Brand new body kit fitted with new clips







Battery tray fitted.



Oil cooler to fit.



Cut out for the oil cooler to sit.

Not much has been done to the uno but i have fitted the new pump and i've also fitted a new fse fuel pressure regulator. I've set the fuel pressure and the engine is now running much better. I've also fitted a oil cooler and had some lines made to fit.
Lots of jobs to do and i'm hoping to have the uno back on the road in the next 3 or 4 mouths.

little bit of an update, at the start of the year the uno was smoking at times then just after the mot it got bad, looked at the turbo and it had 3mm of play in it. I had all ready got a T3 turbo and a 2L manifold from Dunc so popped up to see him.
The uno is now running spot on now and have been enjoying it this summer. I did go up to Santa pod in September and did 5 runs and all went ok.
I need to setup the gear links better as i keep putting it into 5th. The boost was also a bit of a problem, having not set it up befor i went i had to do it there. I can only go to 12 ish PSI as thats all the map sensor will let me. The best time was 14.3919 @ 95.29 mph.
I'm now looking into fitting Omex 600 ECU over the winter.
More to come soon.  







Made up an oil feed pipe.

When the turbo was fitted I had to have a new 2 1/2" down pipe made. So I made the flange and went to Demand Engineering who then made the down pipe. Very happy with what they had done.

This winter I've decided to fit better brake calipers on the back of the uno. Removed from a Golf MK3 VR6.





Got a rebuild kit and also sprayed them with some caliper paint.







All fitted with new hub bearings.
