  1. There's a guy up in Hartlepool that's converted a 1.3 Bonus - it looks standard still, but it's about 400bhp.
  2. Seems the post order got slightly messed up Here are some more upto date pics. Ignore Bogwarts GT/E skirt on my bonnet Only changes since these pics are the wings/lights & doors have been removed, and the inside/underneath & enginebay painted in a grey basecoat. The engine bay is getting painted next (in final color with laquer). I'm collecting the car end of April/Start of May then I'm setting on getting the new engine fitted.
  3. Ah another one in the area I'm currently living in Chester, although my Manta is in Coventry at the parents for a year or so. Welcome to the club and enjoy your stay
  4. Thought i'd give you another update... new turrets + rad + intercooler mounted closer shot of the turrent and subframe mount, and bulkhead mods a boot floor!!!!! the fuel cell is under this floor roughly where the original wheel well was. Filler is to be modified to retain original filler cap etc. Eta i beleive is paint underneath and engine bay sometime at the end of next week. More pics Here Stuart Silvester
  5. Got my engine over there today. I've also had some new air conditioning holes put in transmission tunnel! majority of the rear boxing-up done. hopefully the fab will be finished off in the next week. more pics http://testarea.silvesterhost.co.uk/index....lery=adrenaline Stuart Silvester
  6. Hi all, just thought i would give you some information about my other project now i have some decent photo's The car (originally 1993 1.6l zetec) is having a 4x4 Cosworth engine and escort cosworth running gear, the Wheel base is now also 1" longer than standard, and it will hopefully be running nearer 400bhp when complete. Ill let the pics do the rest of the talking... http://testarea.silvesterhost.co.uk/index....lery=adrenaline (fabrication pic's are nearer the bottom of the page) The main aim i'm going for is to make the engine transplant look like it came out the factory like that, so we are trying to keep the existing suspension turrets etc. the work is being done by a chap that used to build drag car's who set up on his own and now does alot of this type of work (http://www.adrenaline-race.com) Stuart Silvester
  7. Just trying to get it running sweet, the headlight will be refitted, but would be a good idea on the other side if a K&N is fitted. Stuart Silvester
