Okay thanks guys :D, is there a way to use a higher spec fiesta engine 1.4/1.6 so i can look into doing some things like this, ive done a few small things so far like a push to start button and interior LED's and building a TomTom into the dash but nothing major, i wouldnt assume this would affect much in terms of what i could do performance wise?


you would need to replace the engine and ECU aswell as the speedo cluster steering shaft, gear box and exhaust system mate,
it would be much cheaper to buy a 1.6TDCi at 90BHP then spend £2000 on it and be running 160Bhp while still being an economical car.

Agree'd with Lenny.

Add a 6 speed Citroen box to a diesel, some bits and bobs, and it's a hell of a car. I'm slowly going to be doing this myself.

As a side note, damn I want the stuff in that photo. Lol.

Thanks mate,
and heres another reason to love diesel.

if you fitted all of the kit in that picture to the 1.6 petrol fiesta that is next to it then you would get 168bhp and 134 pounds of torque
and the kit costs way more than £2000 see the link below to back me up on this:
http://wot.motortren...block-9361.html

on the up side,
if you get a 1.6TDCi fiesta that is on running 90bhp as standard,
spend around £2000 on it and you have 158bhp and 295 pounds of torque.
the 0-60 may be 4 seconds longer than the petrol but on a 60mph up hill start the petrol wont keep up with the diesel.
