    It handles great tbh, it’s running an lsd which helps and I’m really impressed with the coilovers as you can ride the curbs pretty well. Could do with a bit more power but that’s always the way I guess ��

    Had too much time on my hands so made an accidental purchase for the fiesta.

    I say accidental but Iíve been looking in to doing it for a while and seeing as Iíve had a slight promotion at work and Iím not spending money in the pub currently I bought this.....



    For those that donít know itís a ford 1.6 ecoboost engine out of a 2015 fiesta st180.

    Iím yet to get the engine management but itíll come with a 220bhp base map on it so should give my old fiesta a new lease of life

    Ha ha, yeah Iím spending a little more on it than I intended but itíll still be cheap on tyres brakes and fuel to an extent.

    Few more bits done today

    New wheel to replace the unbranded eBay special the car came with as weíve all seen how they can bend in a crash.



    New OMP lower brace. Can already feel the front is stiffer even on the road which is a result. Not sure itíll fit with the new engine but if it doesnít Iíll have to make one.




    Finally decided to try one of the eBay generic front EZ lip style splitter. For around £10 delivered it was worth a shot and Iím actually impressed.






    Iíve also come to realise that my current gearbox will be over itís reliable power limit so Iíve also picked up a 6 speed box and cable linkage from a 2015 fiesta st180 which should be more resilient.





    Few more bits on the way too

    Little update if anyone is interested.

    Decided to get another car for the new build off a friend which is considerably cleaner than my current car



    Set about removing the engine and interior ready for a little welding including seat mounts and harness mounts.



    Not perfect but pretty decent

    Engine out







    Sadly the racing Puma plenum wasnít part of the deal when I got the car as itís a nice item for the ford boys.


    The S14a really isnít feeling the love it should currently

    Forgot about this but I also fitted a quaife lsd to the 6 speed box. Setting the shims and preload wasnít fun but got there in the end.

    Hope it still works

    Yeah it has a little. Still need to drop the gearbox and replace the main oil seal on it so haven’t been driving it.

    Some progress today







    New engine in and fully mounted. Just got to treat some rust in the bay and tidy the mounts up to get it looking right.

    More progress today

    Managed to get the body loom working so the car has lights, wipers, heaters and windows etc working again. Dropped the sump to fit the baffle around the oil pickup, ran the new cable gear linkage and fitted my new radiator










    Got some driveshafts delivered today too but will need to cut them to length and get them remade.
