cheers Ry this is my first flirt with car modification :lol: :lol:

Author:  Ry [ Tue Jul 26, 2005 6:12 pm ]
Post subject: 

i think your next few flirts should include removing the rear blue oval badge and get some smoked side repeaters, what do you think?

2i/rs arches and skirts would be a gimme, everyone does it, but it looks sooo good. but then it costs money, and i know what havong none feels like :lol:

Post subject: 

i wanna keep it looking as standard as possible. i want the sleeper look! :devil:

i might tint my rear indicators and i still have to lower it :lol:
but now the next few months most of my money is going to be saved for my 2.0L

there has been alot of mention of a 2.0 conversion on here but arnt they the same as an rs1800 engine 130bhp???

Post subject: 

Essentially yeah, but there are many plus points to getting a 2ltr over an RS1800 130bhp engine. For starters it isnt coming out of a group 14 car, therefore helping the insurance costs. Secondly, why get a tuned 1.8 that pushes out the same as a 2ltr, which can then be tuned itself to gain more power - it'll cost you the same to get it all put in if you dont do it yourself aswell.

Thirdly, the 2ltr engine is much more available, coming out of a Mondeo, than an RS1800 engine is.

There's alot to consider for sure, but its just so easy to stick an easily located 2ltr in :)

Missed one thing Des.

2l has more torque, in a fiesta thats maximized to make it go like shit.. Basically your going to be keeping up with tubby's :)

I've driven a turbo and been in a 2ltr Si, and I have to say, I think the 2ltr Si would win :)

Very close, but 2ltr would just edge it I think :)
