    A second newbie from somerset

    Good point about the rs2000 lump but u will need box aswell cos bolt patern is slightly off of what the standard zetec is. brakes and suspension upgrades will be a must. I reckon for a grand you'll have a tarmac shredder...;)

    A second newbie from somerset

    Hello mate is that the zetec lump 1.6l 16valve? if it is? its not worth modding better off sourcing a mk5 escort 1.8 16valve XR3i engine 130bhp standard and readily available. In local scrapyards you will probably find the mondeo engine easily along with loom maybe cost £100. unfortunately that...

    Mods for Omega MV6 3.0 ltr

    hello mate, i would go to a scrap yard find the same couplings you have either end of your cat cut off and fabricate one with a standard bit of pipe. this will allow gases to flow faster than through the restrictive cat box. then when mot approaches replace it with cat pipe..easy peasy...lol
