  1. Engine swap

    Hi all. Got a 56 plate 1.6 Duratec Ford Fiesta .head gasket failure which is end result in the block being twisted so basically scrapped engine . My question is . Would s smaller day 1.2 engine swap work with current gear box ECU etc as was thinking making it a first car for my son. Many thanks
  2. Hi i currently have the Pioneer SPH-da120 unit fitted in my 08 focus but this is a predominantly Apple orientated piece of kit. I am about as anti-'crapple' as you can and own nothing 'ipoo' related! I am looking at upgrading my headunit to the 240BT unit which supports android auto. Does anybody fancy a swap plus cash or have any interest in buying my head unit so that i can put it towards upgrading to the Android friendly 240? Apologies if this should be in the for sale thread if so i will create a proper sale thread but at this moment in time i am just looking for interest to see what my options are.
  3. 2010 MK 2.5 Focus engine swap

    I have a 2010 mk2.5 Focus with a dismal 1.4L petrol. Looking to swap the engine with something more powerful. I live in the UAE but the focus was built in Germany. What petrol engines swap easily into this model? Labour is relatively cheap here and so are spare/used parts, the big question is which engine will fit easily? (petrol only-almost no diesels here) I'm also assuming the transmission will need changed. Catalytic converters are not really needed here under 5.0L so that's one less thing to change, I've already had that removed 😎 Advice for which engines to hunt for would be greatly appreciated! Thanks
  4. Fiesta Mk7.5 grille swap

    Is anyone out there wanting to swap or have to sell the Honey comb upper and lower and grill with the fog light bezels for the Zetec S? I have the chrome one at the minute (as in the picture) and would rather have the Honey comb. If anyone is wanting to swap or sell theirs it'd be much appreciated if you got back to me on here, thanks.
  5. Mk7.5 zetec alloys swap help

    Hi guys. Very new to the the site and I'm probably going to ask a question there are many threads to. But since I'm new not great at navigating the site. I'm looking to swap my current zetec S alloys for the same version just the gun metal grey colour. If anyone could point me in the right direction it would be much appreciated. Also if anyone knows of anyone around the Shrewsbury/Telford or oxford area that does cheap dipping on spraying let me know thanks.
  6. Hi, I have a blown 1.4 petrol engine and was wondering if the 1.6 petrol engine would be a direct replacement? or would I need the ecu, wiring harness, clocks etc? All help would be appreciated thank you
  7. Will a 1.25 Ford fiesta mk 6 engine fit into a Mk 7? Hi, I have a 59 plate mk 7 1.2 fiesta that I drove through a massive puddle and it has sucked water through the intake. The car still starts and runs but it is misfiring on cylinder 2 and it has been diagnosed to be something is damaged internally which I don't have time to mess with as it could be a number of things and I need the car to get to work, so I'm thinking about just swapping the engine for a used one but as they are both more available and cheaper I would like to know if the older engine (the mk 6) will bolt on considering I will still have the old engine to swap over sensors and things so it doesn't have to be identical. Any help/info is appreciated, thanks.
  8. Exhaust System Change

    If I bought an ST180 Cat Back exhaust system would it be a straight fit onto my fiesta Zetec S ecoboost 1L ???
  9. Need Info!

    Id want to know your opinion about swapping a 1.3 60hp fiesta engine with a 1.6 110hp cvh. Ive been offered the engine for 214£ and for 35 more the gearbox. How much would it cost also to make it legal? What more would i need? Thanks to all
  10. Hi all, Thanks in advance, any help would be greatly appreciated. Unfortunately the other day my drive belt started to fray, it subsequently got tangled round the lower pulley and snatched the timing belt. After replacing both belts looks like it's trashed the engine as now it's very flat and total loss of power. Be warned the drive belt cost £12 and so for my questions: I've purchased a replacement engine, same year and same spec complete with all ancillaries. Mechanics part is no problem but the electrics/ ecu bit is worrying me. What parts do I need to keep original from my trashed engine ref sensors, pumps etc to avoid any kind of remapping? I just want to take the old one out, swap the bits round and bolt a new one in and have it run. Any advice would be much appreciated. Old mechanic, new cars are a bit complicated! Thanks, Jason
  11. Hi All, I have a 2006 LS LX Focus. Just wondering if anyone has done a conversion from the factory CD head unit to the Sony 6 CD in-dash unit that came out in the ST Focus (or XR5 to those of us in Australia)? Are the plugs the same for both? Does the remote control near the steering wheel work after the swap? Any info helps... cheers

  13. I recently bought a 2008 Focus CC3 for my wife which came with 18" Alloy Wheels (although they measure 19" across), which I would now like to SWAP/TRADE for a more standard ST type Alloy wheels before the wife scrapes them on the nearest kerb lol. Not sure what type but willing to consider most 'designs'. All four wheels are in immaculate condition and fitted with almost new low profile 'Fullway' tyres.

  14. Mk. 6 Engine Swap

    Hi all, I have a fiesta with the wide arched JWRC kit on it. Currently a 1.4, but I was hoping to put something a bit more pacey in there. Is an ST engine a straight swap or do I need to replace the loom and everything? Has anybody put any other engines in a mk6 before? Need some advice as I'm not very clued up on these sorts of things. Thanks in advance, Nathan :)
