    I have been driving it every day to work. I have changed most wearable parts at 230,000km. This includes a top engine mount, pcv housing, a radiator, heater hose and fuel rail sensor. Also, a waterpump and timing belt kit at 90000km and 215000km . I do not want to touch the motor as many people who modify these cars destroy engine mounts, clutches and flywheels,gaskets, intake manifolds and engine sleeves heating up and cracking. The car is great as it is. With 98 bp, it shocks most cars in 3rd ,4th and 5th gear as it only has a focus badge at the back. The xr5 badges attracted too much attention from everyone. Top speed at 240km has been achieved but is completely waste of time.

    Hello and a very warm, welcome to TorqueCars from me the admin, sorry for my slow reply.

    Thank you so much for joining up and introducing yourself.

    I lost my brother recently following a tragic accident whilst he was working so I've not been around on here much. I've set aside some time to catch up with things though and I hope you've been able to have a look around the site and meet some of our regulars.

    It's nice to have an enthusiastic member like you along, I hope you're enjoying the site. Please start up a project thread and share your experiences with all our other members and I wish you all the best in your project.

    Keep reading the articles on our site and this forum... you'll pick up loads of good common sense tips and don't be afraid to post questions, were all here to share our knowledge and experience.
