Security:
As it's got the full loom and ECU from a MK1 Focus RS, it therefore has the Focus PATS module and two correctly programmed Blue-Chip keys that fit all locks on the car (all locks the same).
Also has a Clifford Concept 650 with two remote key fobs, proximity sensor etc. Remote central locking / boot release.



The guy i bought it from has had it remapped, but they said that the restrictive pipework/intercooler was causing problems, so as he's a metal fabricator he made new pipework up and a new intercooler. (compare the last pic of the intercooler in performance ford mag vs current pics!) It was much better and after he turned the fuel pressure down it absolutly flies! Still needs remapping to finish it off though as can be a bit stuttery at times.

My plans are to get it remapped to get it running spot on, fit my leather recaros into it and get the speedo calibrated, which i think i can do at my work :)

Not an everyday use car really so will only be out it summer really! (allthough the guy that built it was! fair play!)

Expect to see some updates...

Petrol - Erm, i think it sold for about 4100 when jimmy sold it? i paid a tad less than that, which is an absolute bargain, for all the time effort and money that has gone into it, its unreall! and yes, a link to the build thread, i really should of put that in!

Percy - Are you feeling ok or still drunk from new years eve!? lol

DanFraser - Saved lol, it was shouting BUY ME NOW... (and pay no vat! (you might get that if you listen too radio to much..))

Need to get in touch with jimmy, want to use all his pics and editorial thread from ft. (i dont like using peoples pics/write ups with out asking!)

I feel sad that ive got too let my current SI go, had her for years!!! lots of fun times in that, shame it ate the central reservation :(

You do know this is going to be one of the most watched for cars on at least two forums, lol. Anything you do better be good! Just jesting, hope you have got some good things in mind if you do decide to do anything, and all the best luck towards you with this one.

That is actually a scary thought Dan! Will should bring a lot of traffic to FSI :)

Meilack, you say about hearing it, it actually sounds quite like a cvh I think. Takes the fact it's a rs turbo rep even further!

Don't mean to scare you, lol. I loved reading through his build thread and there was definitely passion in his typing. I think everyone on FT was gutted when he announced he was selling it. I was thinking of getting a loan and buying it!
