Recommended Posts

 

Are you going to do a full rs swap or just tune up the st engine?

What made you take on all this? Just wanted to do something different?

I bet most people fort you was crazy at the start. Lol.

I love the orange RS! Great build.

Just a quick question, when you got the reverse camera.. Did you wire it in yourself? Just im trying to find out where the wiring goes so I can somehow add a button to make the camera come on whenever I like using the spare button space on the head unit.

Cheers

Seats & front bumper were one of the first things to go buddy.

I used the original loom out an RS, absolute nightmare! Runs through fuse box & everything.

Ok so few little things were bought next, dreamscience induction kit & airtec intercooler & RS ECU holder. As the induction kit runs down past where the ecu location is on the ST.

Next it was a Remus cat back, nearly ruined my hands & back fitting this but for the sound & pops it gives, made it all the pain worth it!

She was looking good, she suffered from standard Rs ride height.. Sitting up at the front, oddly the ST sits up at the rear lol

I was happy with her at this point, but one night out the blue, I was contacted on the Rs owners club forum, asking me if I was still looking for compomotive wheels, that his father was selling up his RS & had a set for sale.

I had forgotten all about making the wanted post lol it had been a few years since doing so, as compomotive came to a close these wheels could not be bought new anymore. I had turned down the offer of a set a year previously due to lack of funds. This time I had to go for it!

Back and forth we exchanged messages, turns out the wheels were only used for shows, came with new tyres & the owner had compomotive leave them in primer so he could have them done elsewhere in shadow chrome.

So I asked where abouts he was for pick up, ..only 300 odd miles away in Bristol!!

He didn't want to risk sending them up in a courier so I had the tough decision of leaving them.. Or doing what I said previously I wasn't gonna do again, another epic road trip!

Road trip it was! RS Direct were buying the car off him & I'd always wanted to visit the place! It made sense to kill two stones with one bird and meet there.

Seeing Optimus (Adrian's Rs500) in the flesh was something else!

Ahh yes the viper seems to be what the guys are installing recently :)

However I never installed the keyless entry system which is what's making these cars so easy to steal through the obd. It's about the only thing I never adopted from the RS, good old turn of the key before button can be pushed.

Got the wheels home, look bigger than the 19" standards in this pic but must just be angle as these are 18" but very wide! Ideal for the track which is why they are a popular choice by Jamsport & the likes :)

Fitted - He gave me the black wheel lug nuts and lockers too!

My friend pointed out / complained she had nowhere to rest her foot when driving the ST & did with her old car. So I set about making up a custom footplate for her. Here is the result, I also done myself one while I was at it, be rude not too! 😄

Still unsure what route to go with the headlights, bought little brows for the top of them to try on but I think they would have looked a million times better if they were thicker & covered a bit more of the light.. Oh well, shall continue to think.
