    Adding a turbo to a mondeo st220

    Just an update on the car, the vernier pulleys are still being tested in the race car and not ready to be produced yet, so the engines still not finished, I'll give more updates when I know more..

    Torque power weight

    The jag xtype AWD is basically a MTX75 box (manual I'm going to use) with a few bits extra, it's a front wheel drive box converted to a rear drive via a transfer box then a viscous coupling transfers power to the front wheels when the rear wheels slip, its mainly 60% rear drive and you can only...

    Torque power weight

    Thanks for the reply, when you think about it your right, torque is a constant that comes through the gearbox and weight has no bearing on the final torque produced by the engine. I've already researched cryo and it sounds great but not many companies do it over here, that's one thing I'm going...

    Torque power weight

    Just a bit of help... I've been thinking, I've been told I can only get a certain amount of horsepower from my car due to the torque I will need, I could rip my gearbox apart, I will uprate my box but even this will not be enough and totally replacing it for a different one is not an option. My...

    Adding a turbo to a mondeo st220

    Yeah vast amount, to put it in perspective I was doing 50mph round an island in the dry without coilovers and it was losing grip, same island with coilovers 70mph and didnt even twitch.

    Adding a turbo to a mondeo st220

    The brakes is definitely on the list, it's got the asbo upgrade with braided hoses for now but them are being scrapped and will get a more aggressive breaking system, the suspension is already done with BC coilovers and will be adding poly bushes to everything. Thanks for the input, all...

    Manifold/header temperature sensors

    I'm looking for views on individual temperature sensors on each outlet of the exhaust manifold/header, is it worth it or not on a road/track car. Cheers guys

    Engine is still having work done, I've not really touched anything else as such until it's back.

    Adding a turbo to a mondeo st220

    It's a project to keep me busy at night and weekends, plus something to work for, it might not work but at least I've tried.

    Adding a turbo to a mondeo st220

    To be honest it's only just started, i decided on this car because its never really been done, the problem is that the duratec 30 is a NA engine and any parts have to be custom designed made to fit. I'm also having to make the mondeo into a AWD because the FWD will not take 650bhp, the running...
