I have a late 02/early 03 Focus Mk1.5, so far I have carbon wrapped the centre console and gear surround, fixed paintwork, fitted DRLs.

I am going to fit ST170 projector headlights and foglights, Alpine Bluetooth Double Din stereo and amp, Upgraded speakers and I'm looking for ST170 alloys to be sprayed dark grey or black!

Not much but it's what I like!

Have something to contribute?

I have a 2010 Fiesta JA8 (MK7) on Ap Racing coilovers with AP shocks.

I have lowered the back fully and the drivers side however less that an 1/8 of the way down on the passenger side it got tighter and locked completely and I am unable to determine weather it's locked, cross threaded, rusted or anything?

WHAT CAN I DO??

I've tried heating it up with a blow torch, drowning it in wd40 spring compressors all it's doing is eating my c spanners!!

Car. 1.7 puma
Year. 1998
Mods. It's a road legal track car so Hear we go

Wi tec coil overs
Upper and lower strut braces
Upper rear strut brace
5 degree negative camber kit fitted to front wheels
300mm front brakes
254 mm rear brakes
Adjustable bias valves
30 mm rear hub spacers
Stainless steel 4 branch manifold
2 1/4 inch stainless steel exhaust system
Had 3kg taken of the flywheel
Has a bespoke inlet manifold
Remap taking it to 150bhp at the wheels
Fully stripped and lightened shell ( the car compleat with full tank of fuel is 740kgs)
Half roll cage
Racing seats and belts
All this results in it being able to lap Bedford auto drone quicker than a Porsche boxster and the same time as a vx220

Am currently fitting a second engine in the rear so should make it more fun on the track

Will the 2nd engine be identical to the 1st? Issigonis built a twin-engined mini-moke - i dont think the performance was that much more because of the extra weight and i belive they were difficult to syncronise with it only being a total of 300hp an Rs 5 pot (potentially 400-550Hp) or an EVO engine (even more power + 4wd) may be a better way to go (quicker, less hassle) 

 

Was there any problems getting it through the MOT? eg with the adjustable brake bias?
