well thats the worse job done imo! full car strip down on the underside , everything off and got blasted and then sent to the powder coaters and painted in subsea black paint , fingers crossed that should be it done for life haha

fully powerflex bushs and all new nuts and bolts from ford and car parts express (a scary price tbh! the mark up on these must be crazy! some of the bolts are 15 each!)

but its done ! 6 days turn around which is not bad imo!

Need to do a shout out to my best mate kev from leathen motors ! for only being 22 the boys skill level of work is second to non! also nexis for getting the coating done in double quick time!

Cracking finish on them, good to see someone doing some preventative/maintenance mods as well as just go faster ones, A lot would just stick the bushes in and be done with it.

Should keep the old Ford rust at bay LOL!

ha ha yeh they were really bad i wish i took some before pictures of the parts , heavily pitted , this should be good for another 7-9 years as long as it doesn't chip . no point in doing things by the half if im planning on keeping the car for a while !



ok so for the new engine turbo set up , i needed shot of my scorpion 2.5" system , 3" system was made to order , 4 1/2 weeks later it turns up!

0.5" makes all the difference !

rsbits (2) by Jack Strathdee, on Flickr

right another update! . Was late home from my last trip so iv only had 10 days to do things and get stuff sorted!

first things first it to say thanks to a mate , scotty , aka Kerr Sport

managed to get my cage fitted on his tot while i was offshore

i love it ! by far the best looking bolt in cage imo!

also got the battery tray fitted , but haven't ran the cable yet (red wire under the passenger seat) as im indecisive where to drill the bulk head

also did order a universal weld in bar kit for the seats , turns out the focus is too fat and iv had to order more bar so i can make my own kit up ! total pain tbh! as im away offshore soon and its not turned up yet!!



bought this gear stick tower , it shifts the hole mech about 7" up , so the gear stick is closer but doesn't increase the throw , believe it or not its a gen ford motorsport part lol

down side! , i think i might have to hack my dash to bits to get it to fit! ;(

photo 3 by Jack Strathdee, on Flickr



also bought this engine crank breather ! standard one cant cope with 350+

photo 4 by Jack Strathdee, on Flickr

since the air bags are gone for good i thought id chop on and remove all the extra sensors and loom , only did the rear half of the car , still got the front loom to chop up but i think il leave that untill the engines out!

said sensors burred into the loam!


photo 2(2) by Jack Strathdee, on Flickr

wires!


photo 1(3) by Jack Strathdee, on Flickr


MORE wires ! haha



photo(42) by Jack Strathdee, on Flickr


also got the loom stripped and then wrapped the loom in proper loom tape (u can see it in the photos above )

also my waste gate turned up tial mvr 44mm , rather large now i hold in it my hand :/ hope it fits in the bay!

photo(41) by Jack Strathdee, on Flickr


and just a semi arty shot of the motor lurking!


lurking2 by Jack Strathdee, on Flickr


so iv got the following waiting on turning up but i can bet they will turn up once im away! :

Swirl pot (seriously been taking its time)
Sachs 4 paddle clutch
Custom 4-1 manifold
GTX3071r

yeh going for a kaaz , the ATB item just cant cope with the 335ish bhp it has just now on track so when the engine comes out the box will get stripped new syncros and the diff fitted

yeh i heard about your car , zoe was in the passenger seat and she pointed you out and said , bugger like! never a good moment when your looking at your pride and joy in bits lol

em im not chasing power figures as i like to give my car a hiding daily haha , with the engine spec im building it should be good for 600bhp , but im really not even going to attempt to put that through the front wheels lol , il be happy with a thrashing 450-500
