Classic Fords being built in garages, workshops and on driveways!
From: UK Cars: Sierra Estate Kurt’s rolling project is no stranger to these pages, but the State as it’s now known, has taken a radical new direction — he’s turboing the Zetec.
“I’ve used an RS1800 inlet converted to top feed, 630cc Deka injectors, Focus RS internals, 1.8 inlet cam, 106 GTi 160 lb valve springs and retainers, hybrid GT25 turbo, and a home-made manifold and 3 inch system. I’ve upgraded the running gear to match, with an XR4x4 rear set-up with LSD, GAZ GT shocks and HR springs, Focus front coil-overs and Cossie four-pots.”
“It’s all been built in my shed over the last four-and-a-half months aided by my mate doing the wiring for the MegaSquirt while I fettled other bits and learnt toTiG up all the boost pipes and exhaust system! “I’m hoping to get it out on a strip in the Spring.”
A proper Homebuilt Hero in the making!
Manifold is home-brewed.
