ULTRA POWER KA!!

10 posts in this topic

hi all

i have just thought of a really mad idea that could possibly work-

well.....

get a standard 1300 ford ka remove the 1300 lump replace with an 1800zetec - mondeo engine-with a port and polished head- and i high lift road cam - then get a gearbox from a sierra(if this will work on the 1800 engine- then get the sierra prop shaft get it cut down and get a 105-100e rear axle and diff so it will be rwd!-

well more power? well thinking about it there will be no where near enuff room for a turbo of a descent size so do you either make a cut out on the bonnet for the turbo(bad idea as it will nack up in no time) or do you get a supercharged!- -with a striaght through pipe fitted into either a 3" round cherry bomber exhaust or a 3" round peter lloyd rally exhaust

now the bodywork---

spray panther black- imperial blue or frozen white

with the rally arche extensions then with the 10mm wheel adapters then fit the rs 7 spoke brookland capri alloys then lower it 1-2mm or as much as possible with out it looking daft or without cuasing probs- then wilwood 4 pot calipers with greenstuffs brake pads ,discs at the rear (find a way of fitting them)with bmw 3 series brake disc ,grooved and drilled discs all round- then buy the reaco seats from a rover 800 vittese and have them re-covered in black leather with coloured piping to match the car- with the ford bad embossed into the head rest or have the ford badge sewn in- with KA at the top of the seat then reacro just under that in little fancy italics writing- then rear seats- take out the originals get the foam reshaped on the bottom and the back so they have a slight smooth curve- then get them recovered to match the front seats with head rests mounted in the back-door cards and the rear door cards- have these made from mdf- covered with black vinyl- have some 12x9's fitted with a good sound system fitted- then have a cat 1 alarm n imobiliser fitted

obviously there is a few things i have missed out as it would take too long to say

this is just the creation in motion

Sounds like a good plan. You going to do it?

There is a man on another forum at the moment who has succesfully put a Vauxhall Vectra 2.5 V6 engine in the front of his Ka.

Yea, total street sleeper. Imperial Blue is an awesome colour.

I'm sure Seven Valley done a 4x4 Cosworth Ka a few years ago too.

yes i read about the 4x4 cosworth ka - the last i heard was that it just wouldnt work properly without extensive mods to the engine bay then strenthening the front end..... but that was a while ago tho

done a little more research - if i modifiy the gerar ratios in the 5 speed sierra gearbox to get it to do 60mph in 1st it will crack 160mph by 4th gear! as i have just spoken to a gearbox specialist who builds boxes for a living ! oohh!!

also the suzuki sj running gear 4wd system can be made to fit in to the ford ka so- acceleration will be mad!- it should shift!!!- and also the supercharger i was planning on using wouldnt fit because of the room left for the oil feet to the charger itself would be in the way so its either a supercharger or no brakes lol- but i could fit a t2 garret turbo ! but i will have to modifiy the original bonnet some what - make a buldge in it somewhere for it to fit.
