Hehe. It's already on 15's. The escort size of the fiesta SI alloys.

Next stage is MOT time, then start working on the body and doing little odd jobs to the suspension such as coilovers to get a nice stance (not too low though) and the ride quality I hear about the avo's. Suspension top mounts, gearbox mounts etc. also goin to start using my welder as much as I can on practice sheets so that I can start doing some panels.

Then the engine... This is going to cost big bucks so not a priority at all. But something similar to jimmyesh's idea.

Nope, it's mine even on the 15's! It's got the standard 5 door suspension which adds something like 7 metres to the ride height.

Jimmyesh on ft.com did a 2.3 turbo conversion. It's now owned by cookie on these forums.

I have something similar in mind. But only similar.

Actually it's not the Galaxy engine. That's a VAG based engine.
