....you had an Si (thats most of you), with alloys, rs skirts and arches and an exhaust system, and you then had ?2500 to spend on it?

Just want some idea's please :) I know what I'll be getting I think, but would like to see what you think :)

Ok guys, tell me where I can buy this ZT for such a small amount of money?? :lol:

Dont forget all that goes with it - brakes, managment, decent suspension etc

Im thinking of getting a 2.0, and doin a few bits and bobs to the bodywork of it to make it a bit of an all rounder :)

if you upgrade everything else, suspension, brakes, poly bush it all.
Then look at how much you've got left. dont forget you've got to take in to account the insurance change etc.
I'd just stick to a 2ltr on carb's or throttle bodies. is Jay(x-factor) still selling his engine? maybe see about that?

Depending on your age, go the 2.0 engine route with all the nessesary bits i.e breaks suspension needed etc. Or maybe some banging tunes, or spend it on your missus, im sure shed love that!

I see these adverts now and again, 500bhp zetec engines, but then you read that they dont come with turbo or manifolds.
so you'd be looking at say another 2grand to get it complete

I think a standard-ish 2.0L and sorting out the bodywork would be fun, that way you should have some left over for when things go wrong - unless your income can cover that.

My point being, it'd be silly to spend every penny only for you not to be able to pay for Car tax :lol:

Respec! :devil:
