Not too bad really in regards to the diff then. Still a 1.2k mod then "/ humming and arring at the moment as I want to get mine forged.

I think leaving it is a little bit risky in my personal opinion. A woman I know popped a cylinder and it took the head with it. I'd honestly look at what price it is going to cost to get it done against what potential damage it could cause, worst case.

 

Yh still expensive to do but apparently one of the best mods to do on these! With regards to engine damage In blowing a piston, yh it could take the head out and cause more damage, forging is 3k at least with mid range priced parts where as a used engine is 1200, so if I do blow the engine to bits then I’ll get a second unit have the parts of that and rebuild it, it’s all if and buts I know people are worried about these pistons but it’s like the RS head gasket issue it’s pot luck if it goes it goes sod all to be done about it so I have the same mind with my pistons, warming and cooling it down correctly oil cooler better colder spark plugs used correctly etc won’t have an issue at all

I have heard similar things and was told to it as soon as I bought the car by some ford specialists.

I know what you mean KMS do it for 2.8k which isn't too bad for both parts and labour but I do get where you are coming from! You make some good points but nothing makes my backside twitch like it so I keep thinking about forged before anything else "/

like those slotted and drilled discs. Might do a rear disc brake beam conversion on my zetec s and probably install similar discs along with painting all the calipers red

The brake setup looks awesome, bet there is some stopping power now! I love the spoiler, cracking addition to the car. Do you have a video of the new lights in action? I’d love to see the halos and sequential indicators, I’m pretty into lights lol

Cheers guys as soon as I get a video of the lights working properly I’ll upload one to YouTube as you can’t direct upload on here, and stopping power is out of this world haha, done a few more things today changed the mud flaps back to rally style ones to offer more protection along the sides, cars booked in for some more big additions in 2 weeks time :) I’ve scrapped the air ride idea and staying coils, I’ve also invested in some more wheels these will be going in the new year :) and this is waiting to be fitted ;)

I do like the rally style flaps, they just have something about them. Have you stuck with black? Your car looks epic, I’m glad you are never 100% happy with it because it’s a great thread to follow!

How does a hybrid turbo work. Does it eliminate turbo lag? Does the turbines electricaly spin rather than depending on exhaust gases.

So a hybrid turbo uses the stock turbo housing but has updated turbine and compressor wheels which spin faster reduce lag more boost more power should see an easy 50bhp increase with it hehe 

 

and cheers guys the rally flaps will suit the over all car look better in the end and so will the new wheels
