Hows it all going?


When i have some money for my mate, were off down to Universal Salvage Auctions where his dad works, gets all the cars from down there.. Gonna get a mondeo to take the stuff out of 8-)

Not too bad cars down there... hes just got 2 P reg Esxorts for 50 each and sold em for 500 after a couple of new bumpers and simple stuff..

i have got all my parts together now, i am hoping to put it in within the next month

but i am having serious trouble finding an ECU and MAF for the conversion ebay has nothing and poeple seem to be selling the ECU and MAF with the engine as a whole :cry:

i will keep looking if not i might have to go to ford and buy a new one( if they are not to expensive :look: )

does anybody know how much they would be new from ford :?

cheers

Go to a scrappies and find a mondeo and get the stuff off of that?

The way i was gonna do it was get a mondeo from salvage (obviously with working engine etc) and use the bits of the car.. only cause my mate has access to them cheap ish tho..

Good luck tho mate..

My 2ltr has been pushed back to end of the year when i get to start another years insurance with my 2nd no claims bonus (hopefully) :homo:

:lol: :o well on modern cars they nearly £800 a piece in cases, guessing brand new from ford be 500-600 quids.
Dont bother, just stay patient and you'll find one,

im pretty sure the 1.6 ecu will function with all the 2litre gear, just isn't mapped out right so you will want a 2L ecu but its not the biggest job on your list mate

cheers for the reply paul you guess of £500 - £600 was spot on :cry:

i have found a few people who have the engine management so all is not lost :lol:

i wish mate :cry: ,i am off ill at the mo so not much is getting done, i did get some good news last week i am sharing half a workshop so now i have somewhere to store my engine, i am waiting for the ecu and stuff to get posted to me at the mo

other than that i have decided with the help of a mate that i am going to buy a second hand 1.6 Si engine and take the bits off that

but this month and last month has been really slow as i have been working in cradiff on and off for a week at a time :look: ,

anywho cheers for asking mate, i will keep you updated

cheers

I managed to get my ecu of ebay for about £30 posted, which wasnt bad. Just keep an eye out and get in touch with people breaking mondeos on there, they are sure to have the bits, just be persistent. Other option, visit a scrappy or just go on the net and find one of those find-a-part type places.

Go to Halfords, find the zetec one you normally need, then open up all the other boxes and look for one that has the same base, but is shorter :lol: :D

Seriously :)
