    It's a 1.6, with PiperX panel filter, Piper 4-2-1 exhaust manifold, decat, and powerflow decat back exhaust :) It ran [email protected] and 109lbs/ft without the manifold and decat...

    More to come hopefully :)

    any way to swap in the us spec 2.0 zetec? (it's a turd, but it should be really cheap and will give you a fair bit more to the wheels)

    Yeah, but it'd be much easier to stick a 1.7vct from a Puma in :)

    Problem is, the exhaust and inlet are on oppersit sides to the 1.8l/2l Zetec...

    Where as the Puma engine, isn't and uses the same mount, loom etc.. :)

    The puma engine is 1.7, with VCT, and has 125bhp from the box, with cams, full exhaust (which I have) different inlet, and ECU from a Ford Racing Puma you're looking at around 150bhp :)

    CLEAN looking car! You brits have interesting taste in cars, I dont know of anyone that would take the time and effort to make a fiesta look so good! Not knocking your car, just making an observation BTW.

    How much does she weigh?

    Thanks..

    The amount I've spent I could of had a much faster/nicer car, but, insurance is an absolute killer. The fiesta is very nippy, and is also nice to drive :) like a go kart..

    It weighs about 940kg :)

    Just had these put on >

    From THIS:

    [​IMG]

    To this :)

    [​IMG]

    They're 300mm discs from the Focus SVT/ST with Jaguar X Type calipers :)

    Stops very nicely.. Now considering stripping out the interior, two bucket seats, and tracking it.. It's got the suspension, brakes, so may as well :)

    Poor deluded boy, do you really think Ford would spend more money on putting rear discs on a 105bhp car?

    The standard brakes are quite good, and there isn't much need for rear discs now due to the big brakes on the front...

    Neat car. :cool:

    What kind of mods to fit the FSVT parts? I need 3mm spacers and some longer bolts to fit the FSVT setup on my Cougar.

    Just had to drill the standard caliper mount out to 12mm ;) attach the discs and calipers and you're away :)

    Easy as that.

    Fair play dude... How are the cops over here with plates like that?

    I'd take a guess they're show plates though?

    Those wheels are very nice in the flesh, my mate had some on his Renault 21.

    Very good looking fiesta, and those brakes do look much better, but I'm sure you don't need much to stop that little car! haha, I need to get some 4 piston calipers for my boat...one just isn't cutting it...

    The guy in the 5th pic doesn't like your car lol

    Looks tidy not ott like some of the stupid cars round here but I don't see the point in carrying on tbh, as the engines are shit, and a transplant would be so expensive.

    Minus well sell it and save for the Fiesta ST

    and about the plates.. do you drive with those on? if you do, don't you get pulled?
