Don't think Mark has a thread on here, me may do somewhere though. He's a regular on fiestaturbo and passionford though.

That Si came from here from a user called Trissy. The amount of work Mark is putting into this is f-ing immense! Should be awesome when its fully rebuilt. I think he said he aims to put it on the road this summer, will be nice to see it at shows if it goes to any this year.

i was gobsmacked just reading it with all the genuine ford parts and im impressed how hes modernising the car, lots of ideas for people to have on there, like hes using a modified zs loom, i read where he got hold of a pulsar inlet manifold.

makes me seriously want to crack on with mine because i want all new panels.

Danny is there any chance you could get him to sign up here, got loads of questions to ask about it. Ill probably join fiestaturbo.com if he dont want to.

I think he has ditched the pular inlet and gone for a custom made one now. I saw the pulsar one up for sale recently.

It may just be worth joining FT to ask him, will be much easier, plus you can keep an eye on his thread there :)

Same thread title on FT.com i believe.

This is just downright awesome. This project has stopped his other MK3 fez conversion to Golf 4wd running gear and engine.

The other fez project has been on hold for years anyway

Also I believe it was Audi running gear and engine, pretty much the same though :)

After reading the thread fully it mentioned that hes stopped it all together.
This one is his main project, i cant believe how well hes gone about it strengthening everything and adding a focus rear suspension set up and creating a new cross member to have extra space. Hes swapped the mk3.5 suspension turrets for mk5 fiesta/puma ones. List goes on.

I guess its just one less place to check on here, plus hes very well known on the other forums too.

Either way, its not too hard to check it over on FT :)
