nice work mate! bet it goes well now!

the ignis is supposed to run on 98RON fuel, its a bit flat with 95 in it, and much better on fuel on 99 momentum i normally use.

has it got an exhaust system on it??

It shifts now! So happy i did the conversion. Just afew teething problems i need to sort on friday, blowing exhaust manifold gasket and a rattle from the heat shield!

My 140 ran on normal 95 ron and if i used 98 id feel no differance what so ever! Lol but this 190 feels like there is a good 10/15 bhp differance between the two!

Nope standerd system havnt got tge money to stick a better exhaust or filter on it at the moment after shelling out for the engine rebuild lol it will get a better exhaust and filter soon i hope, cheeky hint to my partner for xmas

Sounds like it's really coming on dude :D Really glad that you think it has all been worth it so far. I'd keep it running on decent fuel!

nice exhaust will finish it off lovely!

Cheers mate! Yeah i wont run it on anything other than v power! Only works out to something like £4 extra a tank over 95 ron.

I will get an exhaust on it at some point, it needs a new one as the one on it now is bent and hanging down due to the rear end smash on the donor car!

Just abit of an update here for you guys

As many of you will know the engine i fitted came out of a written off car with the front and rear ends smashed which ment my inlet manifold had a huge dent on the 3rd inlet pipe which must have been loseing me power and overfueling like a bitch as it was about half the size of all the other inlet pipes due to the dent. so browseing on ebay i found 2, one for £110 and another for £89 buy it now, i thought i cant afford that at the moment ill wait. Went back onto ebay in the evening while bored at work and up popped a 190 inlet manifold, exhaust manifold and throttle body! at £10 start price on a 1 day auction, placed a bid on it and won it for £10! well chuffed as i needed an exhaust manifold aswell as mine of blowing! so parts that could have cost me £200 ish i got for £10, i like ebay bargains lol

anyway pic of the new inlet, starting to polish it up, all casting marks removed just need to get a metal polish and a polishing disk to go onto the drill to get it mirror shine 8-)
Image

Also went to toyota and got a new airfilter and cabin filter as both mine were black!
Image
Image

Car feels Alot quicker than before, quite shocked at the differance it has made to it! so hopefully the car should be near to the proper power figure that it was when the car was new which is 189bhp. also didnt realise the Tsport 190 is .2 of a second quicker to 60 than a standerd 190 making it hit 60 in 7 secs dead rather than 7.2, wonder why that is dunno if its because the tsport has traction control and the standerd 190 doesnt! who knows! :lol:

Cheers mate

2.0 fiesta or rs1800 would kick a 140s arse off the lights but your probably find the 140 would pull past over about 60mph. I never found the acceleration very good on the 140, only book at 8.9 secs to 60!

I have been working alot lately and havnt realy had time to work on the car with work and wedding planning so today i got over to my parents to inspect the suspension, nothing seemed out of place so i staterd to try out the old string and measure tracking system, set the string at 30cm from the center of both wheels, back wheel was fine, tracking true but when i measured the wheel that hit the hole i got readings of ....
F
\ 29.5cm
\
\
\ 28cm
R

So the wheel was toeing in by a good 1.5cm which is rather drastic! you can see it is toed in from the photo, the steering was centered in the photo, adjusted the track rod so it was as it should be and went routh to the other side od the car but both wheel were purfect, took the car for a drive and i am shocked at how much better it is to drive now! my steering wheel sits in the center as it should and doesnt pull attal ! 8-) :) so im happy!

picture of it being tracked
Image

And last off my new badge if you hadnt noticed on the last photo, a T Sport badge as this is a t sport in a vvti shell :lol:

Image
Image

I like it, i could have had VVTI-190 badge but though the t sport one goes with the seats as they have this same badge embroided into them :chill:

Not a very exciting update but enjoy :D

pot holes are a nightmare, thats all i get in work this time of year is people smashing wheels up and bursting tyres!

try and make a claim for it?

nice work with the tracking lol fair play to you, saved yourself 20-30 quid lol although i would reccomend you having it check properly.

shame about the wheel, maybe its time for a new set, nice set of rotas or something eh? :halo: lol

cars looking lovely though mate!

I'm quite confidant that it's tracked true and straight as it drives so well now, I have taken it to 3 places in the last 6 months and none of them have managed to set my car up properly, I always End up leaving after handing over £30/£60 to a off set steering wheel, this is the first time in over a year then my steering has been straight lol :grin: oh it's tempting but my partner would kill me if I spent £700 on some wheels when we have the wedding to pay for lol but if I do get new wheels they will be rota GR6s:twisted:

Thats shockng, you should definatly make a claim, i mean you pay road tax to have proper roads.

Badge looks good. Told my mate who has a red t sport that you got one for £400, he was shocked lol.
