VW Golf MK3 GTI, New Fuel Pump

As the car is about 21 years old, it was about time the fuel pump was renewed. A fuel pump gets old and will be unable to deliver the desired fuel pressure when needed. This will have a big impact on the performance as you might imagine. It took me quite some time as the retaining ring was stuck, like real stuck…

I was finally able to prise it of, but needed to perform some cleaning before putting in the new pump. But it was worth it!

VW Golf MK3 GTI, fitting TA Technix Stainless Catback exhaust

Ditched the old stock system and bought myself a stainless system from TA Technix, which was very easy on the wallet and looked the part. Fitment was a bit of a ball ache as some modding was required, but looks good in the end (also sounds nicely btw).

I also weighed each part as I was very curious & compared it with the stock system. The new system is a tad lighter.
