Spent sunday getting them rigged up on my old 1800 to check everything worked as it should. let's just say that a set of itb's and no exhaust except for a 4 branch meant it sounded like thunder.

To be honest i wasn't planning on buying a set of tb's as i was all set for going down the bike carb route but then i saw the previous owner was breaking his car and i bought them with the ecu for what i think is a billy bargain of a price. I'm pretty sure most us us have been there at some stage when you buy something over the internet and then the reality sets in and you think "Agh s**te iv'e just spent more than the cars worth."

My setup cost me about £650 for the throttle bodies emerald ecu, filter and manifold, and wide band lamba controller, on top of which I then spent £300 having it mapped to run 8 injectors (bit pointless but different)

What did you decide about cams?

Thats one hell of a piece of shopping you did there then, dont emerald ecu's cost about that on their own? Due to only having less than a month now until ford fair i'm thinking of running standard cams for now as i dont want to be revving a new engine to death anyway to start with. That said if you wanted to upgrade to a set of ph3's i might be interested in the ph2's as mine is a road car so they might be a better cam for what im using the car for.

Thats the very same guy, saw he sold his car with no engine in it and got in touch with him right away, 5 mins later i had bought the tb's off of him. he ran newman ph3's in his 2.0 and i have been advised against running them in a road car by him as there was nothing under 4k.

Thanks mate, i love this car too even if i have a weird way of showing it. i get so frustrated with it at times and i've come close to sticking the 1800 back in and banging it on ebay.

the emerald ecu second hand with wide band controller was £500.
I do actually have a spare set of brand new phase 2 Newman cams i was going to fit with a more extreme ported cylinder head Ive done that i might sell.
A note though i found even the phase 2 cams needed some cylinder head modifications around the tappets to allow the extra cams lift

Firstly it's been a while so lets remind ourselves how she started off....
Image

August 2012: One reasonably clean 16v xr2i that was near enough standard. i picked it up the day before ford fair, cleaned it up and drove her down to silverstone. hadnt had the car 24 hours when it was sitting on a stand at the biggest ford event of the year.

A year later, from the above comments i can only imagine the car was being eagerly awaited...

The problem though was that it broke the day before ford fair. After all the work, faffing and effort i got the the point where we all end up. It got towed home and put in the corner of the driveway :whistle:

The next week i was off work for good luck and i ended up going off and buying this:
Image
1.8 20v turbo with a few mods including a forge front mount, kw v3 coilovers, porsche boxster front brake calipers and anniversary rears with vented discs. plus the decat and 4.0 bar fuel pressure reg from a cupra r help it fire 2 foot long flames from the arse of my sensible daily!

I've been thinking of breaking the 2i for along time to fund my quest my power from the golf but there's something about an old ford and you cant bring yourself to do it! The golf is great, it really is with the coilovers and the eibach arb's it's not at all boaty like you would expect from a mk4 But it's just not MY fiesta. The car that i dropped an engine into with a length of wood, an old seatbelt, the help of my dad and a bucket of old spanners!

It's the 22year old fiesta with and engine built on a pallet, which was lifted into place on a pair of axle stands, fired flames out the throttle bodies while we tried to get the fuel pressure right. It went out with a blowing exhaust becuase the idle was so lumpy it knackered the gearbox mounts and ruined the flexi. But then it went and embarrassed the hot hatch aristocracy. Ctr's, megane rs's, a clio f1 edition she showed them all up.

But this is what i miss, Driving the fiesta was an event. getting texts from my mum telling me she could hear me coming when i was 5 minutes away... and it wasnt a fake exhaust note, It was the noise of a tuned n/a, real engine noise and i miss it.

This is how she has stood for the last 6 months
Image

And seeing as i never stuck a photo of the new engine and tb/s up here!
Image

I went and sat in it before for the first time in months And it's still got the mk3 smell!

Nothing's really happened with this really other than a few drops of oil down the bores and I've turned it over by hand.

I've spent the last few weeks trying to get the daily back on the road. Buy a vw they said.... It will be reliable they said.

I want it running by the end of tomorrow evening though, I miss the noise to much.
