  1. HI I HAVE A MK5 ESCORT AND IM CONVERTING IT TO AN ESCORT RS TURBO ENGINE . I WAS JUST WONDERING IF ANYONE KNOWS A LITTLE BIT ABOUT THE WIRING ON THESE . RIGHT, ON THE IGNITION RELAY THERE IS A THICK RED WIRE , I TAKE IT THAT IS TO GO BACK TO THE IGNITION SWITCH? AND DO THE ECU'S GET THERE POWER FROM THE RELAY ? AS I CANT SEE HOW ELSE THEY WOULD GET ANY POWER . THE MECHANICAL SIDE OF THINGS I CAN DEAL WITH ITS JUST THE WIRING THAT I LIKE TO HAVE A SECOND OPINION :) ANYWAY HOPE SOMEONE CAN HELP MANY THANKS CHRIS

  6. hi i am not sure which engine to go for the ERST or FRST i was wondering if both are eaqauly hard to fit into a mk5 escort as if they are both fairly tricky to fit i will gop for the ERST as it is cheaper and then sometime in the future convert to efi. anouther thing is that i hav read somewhere that the ERST has 2 fuel pipes coming from the tank and as my caris a 1.4 cvh (spi ,cfi) at the moment i was wondering if i would hav to change any of the fueling systemto fit the ERST engine . i think the fiesta engine is alot more simple to fit as it is all electric and i was wondering if with the fiesta engine i would be able touse my fuel line anyway thats the story if anyone can just answer any of thos questions i can pretty much get started buyin parts etc on a tight budget lol many many thanks chris
  7. so would it just not be better to put a fiesta rs turbo engine init then and save money and if it is not better to do it this way y? thanks chris
  8. hi i am looking for a bit more power from my 1.4 cvh 1993 escort (cfi, spi). obviously im not going to be getting stupid power from it , im just looking for a bit more mphhhhhhhhh if u get me lol. anyway i hav been looking into getting a new camshaft for the time being as i am looking to put an rs turbo engine in it in the near future. i hav seen that kent cams make 2 sorts for my car one being a FAST ROAD CAM (valve lift -11.4 / 11.0) the other being a ROAD RALLY (valve lift 12.1/11.9) i am a bit stuck on which one to get as i am looking for the one with the best power gain. another thing is that i am only looking to get the cam as i hav heard that a vernier pulley is a good investment when buying a uprated cam. i was only realy hoping to buy the cam a money is tight DOES ANYONE NO IF THE KENT CAM WOULD RUN JUST AS GOOD ON THE STANDARD PULLEY ? anyway if anyone has any answers it would be much appreciated many thanks chris
  9. hi car passed mot on thursday which is good so i went out driving on friday and the battery light came on when i was driving at about 50mph . the lights went dim and then a short while after the airbag light came on. not long after that the car died and i had to coast home. i wasnt sure wether any1 has had this problem or if anyone noes watit could be i tink it could be the alternator anyway thanks chtis
