Electronic water pump.
Decent BOV - plumb back type.
Electronic boost controller.
Z32 air flow meter.
Turbo Timer.
Twin 11" Spal thermo fans.







have you thought about an aftermarket ECU? im going for a PowerFC D-Jetro with my car, because it deletes the AFM, which will make my filter to turbo pipe work much easier. and also neater.

Even worse, they wouldn't do me a refund or exchange becasue I boughtthem 6 months ago.
They did say they will discount a new one for me, but the postage cost more than the TCA.



Hi Brett

A bit late but maybe you can get them to send you 2 of the oposite to make a pair and flog the other set off

GREAT STUFF!



Great idea. Thats what I ended up doing, ordered a few other parts aswell, which helped soften the blow of postage costs.

The plan is to get the car going with a nistune.
Changing ecu now is a good idea, as finding a spot for the bigger AFM is difficult in the smaller escort engine bay. [?]

The plan is to get the car up and running on the standard engine and turbo, wind boost to 14 and see how that goes.
Not much work lately, the escort spending time in storage.
Latest jobs were finishing the roll cage, except door bars, I've decided to go for different seats and want to buy them first.









After a few beers and looking at the tiny bolts holding the engine and crossmember to the rest to the car we decided they wouldn't hold up to the abuse.

Dayne - the front rotors are wilwood gt48, 310x32mm. They bolt to an adapter then to the wilwood hubs with just enough clearence for the steering arm.
