Must be costing you a fortune in fuel for all them lessons! Be sweet to learn in a Fez ST :ph34r:

yeah, you would think....and I kinda was guna take the brunt of it...but when seriously calculating if it was worth going down the ST route i crunched some figures.......

tdci currently scraping to manage 43mpg...been going down nearly every day at the moment...

STs do around the 30mpg mk (not official figures...but Fiesta STOC figures...so real!)...

Mildly tuned STs manage more MPG...I was surprised to hear this...but again Fiesta ST info from the STOC...good bunch there...

and the ST will be on LPG once I am using it for the school...Diesel at 134.9p here, LPG 70p pr ltr.

That means I will make a saving of about 2/3p per mile on fuel alone...let alone the 250 quid a month saving taking the leasing costs out of the equation...and the day a month nearly of Ford appointments!! Lol! I will also maintain the car for next to nothing due to trade parts account!

So although it seems nuts...there is some logic and amazingly it will save me pocket loada cash each week/month!

Wonder what MPG figures the 155ps 1600s will come back with! :unsure:

yeah...i was thinking in way of brakes too...mine fade in me tdci at times...too much left foot braking I think though!!!

also my thoughts went to the torque...the fiesta 2.0 has got the torque by the buckets....and the boxes very rarely brake!! Well a guy on STOC with a 330bhp ST has blown his...but thats understandable right!? :D

Yeah...will be modding with basics to ensure embarrassment to the 155ps boys!!....throttle body, KnN kit, flexi and decat and with a remap I be hitting 175ish easily. B)

Plus the 155ps cant be good on fuel...the ST when tuned mildly actually manages better MPG than standard!! :)

I think he means he was gonna use it as a RWD engine. If it is mounted logitudily and a Sierra gearbox mated to it, it is RWD.

Well its def a Zetec lump, although manifold looks Escort.

To be honest i'd buy one from an exsisting car that you can see running, and rebuild it. Better than buying an engine that you dont know what it is.

agree...get an engine thats been run in...then hear it purr before you buy...then rebuild the basics...you will get more reliability this way....

Honda back in the day bought up all 1500cc blocks for their F1 cars...but they had to have done 100k miles or they wouldnt touch them...as they knew if 100k has been done that the block and head were good...for one race!!

I not suggesting buy a 100k engine...but theres a principle there somewhere! B)
