GTX Diesel - Was it yours? C131 BHA

Post by Fresco3000 » Fri Sep 13, 2019 11:17 pm

Just picked up a GTX with a diesel engine, the rear window is plastered with Scirocco Resister stickers, recent as 2016 meet.

Would like to know more about the car's history, has a fuel issue - died on the M25 this afternoon.

Think that belonged to shane, called it smokey joe. Got it from swansea i think

Had a huge folder of bills for the work done, about 3k for the engine conversion

When was the last time it had a fuel filter?

Yeah it is, got a pic of it on my phone. He had it in 2017 and sold it and got a brown storm and eventually sold that

It certainly earned its name, never seen so much smoke. The diesel engine is coming out, it rattles like a tractor.

Guy's sending me the folder, did mention engine conversion costing around 5k.

While it's been neglected no doubt of late (can't see any sign of service since purchase), it's a great spec GTX with full leather interior and some of the nice to haves included.

Originally it was just going to be a donor car but can't bring myself to take it apart. So I now have another project.

You reckon?

Sounds like a bus atm.

Assume that's the switch in the engine? What exactly does that do?

Is Shane still on here?


Thanks for all the info ; )

Switch in the engine is a tuning box and ups the power. Its always sounded that way

His name on here was scrappy, he may visit occasionally

Thought I recognised the car, a friend of mine had it converted to diesel and I think had the black leather put in it.

He's said if it's still cut out, he thinks there's a cut off fuse under the aluminium scuttle.

If you are still stuck with it or want more info about it, he's said to drop him a message at dv9146 (@) aol.com
