  1. Front or rear of engine? What engine is it?
  2. Get block MOD done at the same time as the clutch swap. This issue is once the block is cracked it's useless, even if repaired the issue tends to come back. it's safer to do it. and since engine is apart anyway the couch can be put in also. Also the block mods renews most parts so the engine will be all set up to take the increased performance.
  3. I looks like the 2.5 engine in the smax will go up to 270ish with stage 1 remap. But I'm not 100% sure if you would need the famous block MOD or not. Being kind of the same engine I think you may need that first before pushing more power.
  4. Everything you stated above still comes down to what engine you are using. If you are using the normal 2.5 that is found is some Smax then 300 Bhp may be a issue But to 400 you would need load more work. One guy had already done this, it's a green smax. Uses a Focus RS engine. But the flames are a flamethrower kit. You may see it on YouTube etc.
  5. It looks like a skinny pipe at front of car. Just in front of radiator.
  6. Technically you said your cluster was the issue. Put all the original parts back in and leave the cluster. That just have the cluster programmed. There are companies who actually repair the old cluster so none of this is required. Also you can be 100% sure it all come out from the same car. Unless you took it out. JW is also correct it is a Immobilisers issue, however the engine malfunction also indicates ecu issue. You have to issues there. Maybe the cluster is not finding the ecu or the other way round. You could try double checking you installed everything correctly, or just put everything back to normal and have cluster repaired.
  7. I have completed this conversion. But the cars was a mk2 and I got parts from a mk2.5. I had to replace floor wiring and all door motors including wiring. As it's a canbus system the gem needed some modifications with elmconfig. The central locking itself will still keep working. So you can do it depending on what system you use, so prefacelift is Lin network and facelift is canbus. Just match it to the car year. The fault with the windows going wrong way is down to the gem taking control of the windows, you need the gem to give control to the driver door module. If your doing a retrofit with aftermarket stuff then it won't work. Just a reminder the floor loom is a headache to swap. I'm taking complete interior out and carpet. It also goes to fuel pump so tank needs dropping. But we'll worth the 4 electric windows, global closing and the folding wing mirrors. With key also but that I needed a £65 module.
  8. Commonly on a Focus. The pipe is normally what has the issue of splitting. Ford made a revised part which the easiest way to tell if you have the newer model is if you focus has a front power steering cooler, then you have old pipe. Fords revised part just goes from the power steering rack to the pump. There is another pipe which goes to the bottle with oil to the pump. This normally only has issues if it been rubbing up against the engine. But if you have the electric pump this does not apply.
  9. Very rare option but is possible. does the door handle have a button on it to lock the doors.
  10. ST timing belts are normally around £100+ that's including the water pump. Check prices with both Volvo and Ford. Only issue with eBay is warranty claims say the pump goes back and needs to be return it's better to have a store then having to deal with postage etc. Saying that the garage who supplies the parts will have to deal with all issues. Depends on what you want to do but £86 is good price I paid £140 for mine.
  11. normally relays don't normally become faulty. We need to know what fuse box would be inside your car. Does it have 2 connectors at bottom, or 3, with big brown connector. But double check you have correctly fitted you new bulb. If led then it could be a polarity issue. But once you tell us the type of fuse box someone will tell you the Relay if it has one.
  12. Same fitting. The mk2 uses a Bolt and mk2.5 uses a nut. Both fit same on door. However if you prefer your old wing mirrors mk2 then just remove wiring from the mk2.5 and wire into the mk2. Additional features may require a a new wing mirror. The mk2.5 wings just didn't look good on my car.
