no bleeding ford was a let down :( i did how ever get my mate to weld a new bracket on for my radiator :) no more banging about, also won those clocks for a measly £16 :) hopefully they will be here this week, i know it must be that 100bhp increase from the ripspeed air filter and the heat wrap, comment of the day, "ash, have you got a leak, Yes why ?, just wondered as your car was whistling as you went pass :)" also my mate fixed that mashed up surround, cant even tell it was broke, so that will get sorted tomoz if i find some long enough bolts :)

o dave i forgot to tell you on sunday i put a spider in your wing mirror :), and ben you should :) do it up like a Rs 1800 rep :).


I forgot you did that as well although i'm suprised dave didnt suspect anything as i kept running away from it lol. I was thinking down the RS1800 route but i much prefer the Si round bumpers and seats. I'll deffo do the skirts and arches as well as badge and wheel if i win it and maybe alloys as well

Well its a much needed update i think, my car has been over heating for some time, as when the turbo kicks in it seems to knock my water temps through the roof, after much debates on whether or not i should disconnect the water cooling and just have it warmed up and cooled down properly by the oil, i came across a turbo cooler in one of my mags, thinking it was probably a gimmick or some otther nonsense i dismissed the idea and came about trying to find my problem. At the north meet i was giving some pure DV action when i realised under revs one of the pipes was leaking fluid, so popped a call into ford the next day and ordered the top pipe for the radiator, what they actually gave me was a Mk3 1.1 top hose which of course had no inlet for the turbo, so again i had to wait for ford to correct there problem, The pipe then came and was fitted without problems, and i refitted my thermostat which i had taken out, the car was running ok, but seems to do a buckaroo when the fan kicks in and the Temps are warm, i then found Another FrsT owner in same colour and when we was having a chat, we both popped bonnets to check the specs etc, i then realised mine was missing a vital pipe connectin the turbo to the Amal Valve, which mesures intake and boot pressure and sets fueling to sort, basically mine was fueling the hot air from the temp, the temps then calmed down a touch, so decided on some heat wrap again, brought them down a touch, then more reading into this turbo cooler i found that it takes the turbo out of the Radiator Cycle all together so will obviously bring temps down, and will also allow the car to hold more water, that combined with leaving the fans on warm seems to have sorted it, So now its just got some new Motorsport Ht leads on the way, as well as the proper Rs dials as mine at the moment is using my Si dials :lolz:, Been told with my current spec i should be able to achieve atleast 190-200 BHP , but i will get a dyno print out next week as im taking it to Collins Performance Centre in chesterfield, so will get a before and After.

I didnt think T2's were water cooled mate, just T3's, I've not connected the pipes on mine as I think with the si bumpers it will need all the cold air it can and running hot water through it aint going to help!!

Can i ask where you got your small blue pipes from? the one from the inlet to the d/v??

Cheers bud

I like bonnet raisers, I like them and I don't mind cars without them!
You get them for a couple quid on eBay can't you?
Are you going to FF with this?
