Get it on dude, I had it unwrapped but the throttle cable didn’t like it

Nope fitted myself had to get a flex joint put into the exhaust aswell as they can crack or rip studs out

they did the first ones highly polished think mine was pulled from under the bench lol

I hear that.

she hasn’t liked me since the day I got her pmsl
but had her so long can’t see her going until after I do

always said it would fund a holiday for her and the new fella
(Ok that starts a row every time but she knows it’s true)

You and I probably know each other from other forums or maybe the rs owners club (ok ok now that’s a marmite subject)

I did do the 25year anniversary meet with the Register
And over the moons I have been on a few club stands at ford fair

So you in a mk2 focus or 3
Probably should of asked you that ages ago lol
Or should I be worried that youre a spotter

Il need to see your s1 in flesh somtime this year just to see the manifold and how you’ve run everything leads etc etc
I placed two small spacers under each cross over post and had the leads run across the cam cover

but in truth they don’t touch
The throttle cable I’ve still not really sorted but it will melt if you leave it as normal

I’ve had to put heat proof on the cross over aswell

I was thinking of using a 16i inlet and bringing pipe straight to inter cooler to miss the heat from manifold plus ceramic coat the manifold,would using the 16i inlet/throttle body bring throttle cable in a different route ??

To be fair that was exactly my route
Got the inlet and even got an external wastegate to be put into the exhaust
Screamer to
(Pretty sure I scraped the inlet and the rest is in the shed )

it became an obsession and that’s one of the reasons I left it alone for so long

great Minds ………..
I was the same for power just trying to prove you can get near 300bhp on Mfi but all I ever heard was Efi Efi but imo that’s not what I bought in car/running gear

They got 308 from mfi back in the day
So my view was if a race team can
Then I can

yeah it’s all I got too EFI ,EFi oh go away

honestly 300 is to much the sweet spot is 200 imo

I must admit I had 200 with a torn boost pipe lol on the rollers

That would have been the compression ratio I’d say

was It the proper turbo kit ford supplied
(Turbo challenge ) or did he Frankenstein it

my bad read it again and see the cvh turbo
