finally a new Fiesta RS Turbo owner :)

right everyone after the sale of the previous car fell through (less said the better) :wall:
i had a great bit of luck and dropped on this motor from a cracking guy from up cumbria :god:
its totally different spec wise to the white one i was going to get and i actually prefer that if im honest as its a lovely base to make a great car from and not ruin the oe looks/charm of it too much. :top:

its a 1990 car in red
totally standard engine wise apart from a receipt for some form of hybrid turbo
stainless system
lowered suspension
had a resto a few years ago and is in great shape nice and solid in all the usual areas.
also had an engine rebuild a few years ago

the car has not been on the road since 2014 but the current owner took the car for a pre mot on monday and it failed on the following

emissions too high
handbrake cable needs adjusting
spare wheel needs a tyre
one headlight not working
reverse light switch intermittent

and that was it so the plan is to give the car a real good full service including the following

oil and filter
ht leads and denso ik27 plugs
fuel filter
uprated frst fuel pump
coolant change
drive belt
cam belt and water pump kit
new set of wipers all round
new set of bulbs all round

the owner also informs me that the turbo will need a rebuild which is not a problem as it will go to my mate wilky for the said work and possibly a bit more of his magic work.

i also have my other mate who is a professional detailer booked in for the end of march to give the car a full paint correction detail and interior valet etc etc so the car will look spot on once done.

the plans are then to refit rebuilt turbo and then get the car an m.o.t. once this is done ill be calling msd for one of there set up sessions and if all well followed by there stage 3 conversion on the same day :)

looks wise with the car i dont really want to change anything apart from i think its crying out for the period 4" tailpipe on there :DD:

anyway enough babbling from me for now here are a few pics for you all

Had my good mate Matt pop over yesterday for a catch up, some stoke oatcakes and did a couple of little jobs on the car.

New alternator and belt fitted
Bailey breather kit fitted
New ht lead separator finally fitted

Really happy with how the engine bay is looking now just a few bits to change over to red at some point and we're good.

I'll be out for a drive in the car on Friday to see if the fuelling issue is now sorted, we now have proper voltage at idle so fingers crossed it's all good.

Anyway Matt took a few pics so here they are

went out to the car on 23rd Dec to remove the remains of the side mouldings ready to fit the amazing reproduction ones that myself and rsmat worked in conjunction with coh bains on.

These will be fitted sometime early 2022 but first the car will be getting a full paint correction courtesy of ocd productions :)

whilst out there i decided to give the car a start and run it upto temp and got a quick vid

The decision was then made to take the car out for a little xmas eve boost with my co pilot

really enjoyed it and so did the little man, got a few little niggles to iron out in the coming months and will be fitting the rest of the superpro polybush kit i have here.

been an absolute age since i posted on this, but there's really been nothing to report on until now

yesterday i travelled over to my good mate matt at ocd productions to finally fit the new reproduced side mouldings from coh baines which i had a big hand in getting done.

absolutely over the moon with them coh baines have well and truly nailed it, and now fellow fiesta turbo owners can get the mouldings also.

had a great drive over to north wales car as always got alot of attention and added a few more to the kill list haha

anyway matt at ocd uploaded a vid to his youtube page please give it a watch and subscribe if you like

As some of you might know if you're following my 206 gti build thread on here, I left the fiesta over with Matt at the weekend.

yesterday he took the car on a nice little drive onto camp where he's based and took me some amazing pics.
Mat always loves driving my motor I think he secretly wants it .

Anyway here goes

haven't updated this for ages as the car hasn't moved out of my garage since bringing it back home in june.

anyway iv now pulled the trigger on a maxxecu mini and loom kit from ignition advantages, this will be the final piece of making this car into a niggle free cvh turbo, as the ofab is causing me grief so its time to go.

link to said ecu package

Im going to be taking the car over to my good mate matt at OCD Productions and were going to do quite a few jobs before fitting this, the main one being sorting out all the rats nest of wiring and removing anything not needed and tidying up what's left.
I still also have a full polybush kit to fit which will be loads easier now on the ramps and have a airtec tubular manifold that i'll be getting ceramic coated by Raj at Autoflock.

Oh yeah i almost forgot we also have brand new outer and inner window rubbers to be fitted courtesy of the amazing Coh Bains once again.

Hi Andy am a fan of your car but not the factory wheels . Am guessing that they will be quite heavy compared to aftermarket flow forged wheels that will help make the car a bit more lively much like a LW FW.Cheers |B

Hi everyone i hope all of you have had a great festive season and are gearing up for 2023.

following on from the posts above, we plan on getting the car over to rsmat sometime in January and then it will be a case of all hands on deck to rattle the jobs off asap.

i did forget to add that we will be fitting a set of forged rods to the bottom end and raising the boost somewhere around 20-24psi, i also still have the .48 exhaust housing i could refit onto the t3 if we really wanted push things higher but for now im sticking with the stage 2 t3 setup.

we are also going to fit a modified series one rs turbo inlet manifold whilst we are at it as these seem to flow far better than the standard efi fiesta turbo one.

all in all it should massively transform the car going over to a modern ecu with far better scope across the board.

a few random pics
