Hey, decided to have bit of a fresh start on here, i know ive pee'd a few of you guys off, but id like to leave that in the past, ive had bit of a understanding lately and want a clean slate... if you gents will let me :)


anyway the Si

uptill recently, it was reletively standard ont he outside, i liked it that way, under neath was a completely different story though

1.8 Zetec E, 130 spec with the 2.0 cams H.O inlet and Throttle body (not gone for the ECU as yet, fuel prices aint very forgiving atm) also a 2.0 maf, its running on a BLOB mk1 mondeo ecu, and is fitted with blacktop focus ST170 platinum spark plugs

it also has a K&N filter and stainless Catback exhaust with a 3.5" tip to the backbox

Polybushed all round except the rear torsion beam mounts, didnt really want to take it off yet, the bushes in it are fine atm, but front top mounts, front anti roll bar bushes, rear top mount bushes and rear anti roll bar bushes, all from Flo-flex

engine bay has been treated to some suble chrome items, the bonnet stay, top mount cups and the oil filler cap, i did have a chrome but painted black spark plug cover but ive removed that for now

the engine bay has had the following detailing, rocker cover done in a electric blue, blue motorsport sillicone cased plug leads, gloss black crossover and blue sillicone hose joiners

interior wise again different to the outside, RS recaro seats front and back, standard Si door cards, escort GTi leather wheel with a ford overlay in the ford badge bit of the airbag

it has a auto specialists blue capped leather gearknob, Full electrics pack from central locking, quickclear heated front screen and ford standard alarm and deadlocking, i have headted electric mirrors ready for painting and fitting

for entertainment i have fitted a Boss audio BV7940 DVD player with 3.6" screen, as a good base to start with, it has 2 video and sound inputs, and 1 video output for expansion, reads SD cards, USB and aux front for mp3's and video players

i plan to get a 7-9" monitor for dash mounting and a PS2 slim fitted suing a car adapter (they run on a 8.5v supply, i could go for the Xbox 360 S but theyre a bit expensive for car use)

JBL front companants, crossovers and tweeters
and Alpine E tyes in the orignal speaker mounts with standard ford wiring at the back
200W amplifier and 1000W 10" JBL sub in box in the boot


the outside has had since after ford fair RS turbo pop out rear quaters, and a dented bonnet thanks to a run in with my mate after the guy infront of him decided he wasnt going to make the slip road in time, but i have a RS turbo bonnet waiting on the funds to be painted and fitted

the original 14" alloys were still fitted from factory and the car was lowered 30mm on the standard Si gas sports shock absorbers

since even before the 1.8 was fitted ive had RS2000 260mm brakes on the front which i bought off danP your all familier with, that must have been about july i bought/fitted them, but they have now got grooved and drilled discs


but lately ive decided to lose the standard look, the Si now has RS skirts and arches, Escort GTi 15" wheels, these are ET40 so are spaced 5mm each wheel

Escort RST crossover pipe and blue sillicone joiners, Ashley four branch heat wrapped
and ive debadged the boot except for the ford badge


anyway essay over :P

before wheel change

how she is currently

fair play to you fella for putting a line under all that stuff and getting back to what we are all here for, the community and the cars.

on the second bit she is looking really sweet mate you should be proud of it.

thats very kind of you mate

its mainly come about because of on fiestaturbo ive come accross likely how i did on here, but theyr emuch less forgiving, now im tarnished witht he same brush everytime i say something that comes out wrong

tbh they dont appreciate the Si on there, put me down about the 1.8 engine etc, so i want to make amends on here first, its alot friendlier on here tbh, i see ive made a tits up

but yes mate i am very proud of her, shes got great power, good brakes and handles very well, even is comfy and ghot good entertainment so its a good all round package, except the fueling :P

lets not start an inter forum war as we are all fiesta lovers but this place is alot more friendly than most forums i have seen.

at the end of the day its your car and if your happy with it then thats all that matters. i personally think she looks stunning.

Nice car man!
Love the Blue!!!

You should get a dremel and polish up the raised zetec 16v and ford logo on the cam cover :D

It'd go well with the strut tops and oil cap!

Very nice car, liking the plans for it.
Looks stunning.

1 way to sum up the 197 is like sex, you build upto the best bit and when it eventually happens it only last a few seconds but you always want to do it again!
Poor Orange Si is hurt. Started first time after sitting for 3 weeks and with virtually no petrol in it

cheers again gents :)

the manifold is a Ashley four branch, in heat wrapped
the mid section and backbox are both stainless, but i havent found a manufacures stamp or marking on them, so i cant say whos made them, the backbox tone is very mild, sometimes its not even noticable as a aftermarket item, so it suits me for a daily car perfectly,
mind you, now the four branch is on, thats all changed dramaticly, i get good comments about its tone now, rather raspy and a few pops, the four branch also acts as a decat.
