it was rear wheel drive i think, ill have to dg the mag out. Atleast you both seem to have the skills to do something like this, i wouldnt know where to start. Is it alot of work to get the YB to fit? will there be cutting needed doing. sory for all the questions, just very interested in this project and when it comes to doing stuff like this im quite un-educated lol

its a fairly large amount of work to be honest. the front drive of the 4 wheel drive is the biggest headache. but this was expected so all in all im not dissapointed! you have to cut a transmission tunnel and prop tunnel into the floorpan. which is the skilled part. and also the fabrication of a few other choice bits and bobs which theres that much cage in my car now im not worried about it moving or distorting when its cut. the fiesta front suspension pickup points will end up being chopped off i should imagine. or used for making a subframe mount. its all paperwork sketches and ideas at the moment.

its not the kind of job you'd try and get done in a weekend with your mates put it that way.

Basically... everyone should stop asking things, and await photos of progress, photos will show all :P

Can't wait to see pics and by the sounds of it you've been planning it and designing this for a while. When do you reckon it'll be done? The amount of power to weight ratio will be phenomenal. Itll be easy one of the quickest.

Are you thinking of the MK6 one?

I know there was/is a few mk3s floating around but were all gay wide arch jobs using sierra floorpan etc

Oh yeah. Just noticed that aswell. Awesome car though and sounds real nice, no matter how many times I see it I just want to have a car that shifts just like that to.
