  1. Supercharged Ford Fiesta MK7

    I got it from eBay. Mk7 fiesta double din fascia. Everything has to be changed in order to fit it.

    Insurance isn't too bad. Visual mods don't affect the policy with mine. And they know I've uprated the brakes etc, so it's not really changed. Might be just because I've also gotten older and more NCB.

    Also picked up a zunsport grill, second hand again. Helps with the airflow. Normally it's hard to pull of a zunsport on the prefacelift because it's just crash bar behind. With the intercooler and oil cooler it looks better! Some picture from a car meet up the horseshoe pass Picked up a very rare Mountune MR155 front apron which was a pain to bond on. A bit different to the usual TRC splitters Grey overlays to match the wheels

    Right back to it! Finally fitted the Aerial to the headunit so I can have the radio in the car. Also fitted the hazard switch after losing the first one I bought Also picked up some Boomba spoiler raisers, very marmite to begin with but after a while I really liked them, help make the rear more aggressive. Without spoiler XD haha And with raisers

    Had the car serviced and on the dyno at Zi Motorsport in Wrexham. Very please with the results! The car made it's standard power at 4000. With max power at 215bhp so very pleased. Still, room for improvement.

    Time for a bit more stopping power. 300mm focus ST170 discs with mondeo calipers, brembo pads and brackets. I got these second hand off the forum for £170, and the seller then bought me new discs (old ones in first pic). I sold the clear HEL lines and got some yellow ones to match the calipers I painted. Snapped the bolt trying to get braided line out of the caliper so had to get the blow torch on it and molegrips. Old disc compared to new Dyno run up next!

    Some stupid women decided she couldn't parralel park and scraped down side of my car then denied it. Police useless so had to pay out my own pocket. £100 and also got car machine polished.

    Yeah it's such a nicer place to be with the black.
  9. Supercharged Ford Fiesta MK7

    Picked up an ST headlining from Birmingham along with the trims which I'd had sitting around for a few months. Quite easy to install took about 45 mins maybe, and looks 10x better than the grey. Sorry some pics are a bit poor.

    Hi mate, the oil cooler is only for the supercharger to cool the traction oil.

    Right so having some troubles with the extra boost, there was a bit of surge before removing the air restrictor but now it's causing the charger to stall. Yes it makes a cool chatter noise but it's not good for the charger, and I don't think i'll be lucky enough to get another one one warranty. Rang up TTS who are the UK Rotrex dealers and they were very helpful, advised to fit a BOV. Popped down to demon tweeks, picked up a Forge valve, vacuum piping and a T-piece. Also bought a larger filter from Ram Air. I tapped into the fuel vapour recirc before the one way valve, it was a bit of a pain but a hot brew softened the pipe which is plastic. It's not the tidiest, I will tidy it up at some point when I have the time, I did buy some yellow hose wrap from Demon Tweeks but it's quite difficult to use.

    A little mountune sticker for the car. It only drinks 99 so the 95 should really be a sad face.
  13. Supercharged Ford Fiesta MK7

    Good news, supercharger replaced under warranty for free. Oooh shiny I also fitted a Setrab oil cooler to keep the charger oil cool (was meant to have one all along, oops). Boost piping relocated behind the crash bar. I also removed the air restrictor to get a bit more power out of it, injectors can compensate 15% either way so it kept the AFR at 12.1 WOT Also picked up a replacement intercooler as mine was full of turbine shards for a tenner off my mate Some picture showing the charger placement for those interested. It's very easy to do, I took it off whilst engine in car in 45 mins. (not my car) Oil reservoir was also moved so it wasn't a foot above the charger, this is under drivers side headlight

    So whilst I was trying to sort out the charger I just ran the car with the original belt and induction kit. Car ran fine with the larger injectors just very rich. Still had time to attend a car show with some mates
