  1. paddy i got a fuel rail injector loom cover autospecialists one with 16v laser cut out, powdercoated red currently, also have a non abs brake resevoir cover too if want it? 

     

    assuming you'll be needing a front mount starter motor? hope it clears the manifold!

     

    Very interested in the fuel rail cover

     

    won these battery tray covers on ebay around a month ago guy threw the abs shape res covers in with them

    using the standard manifold and a decatted downpipe should be miles clear not using the 4 branch i got 

  2. Can anyone point me in the direction of any info regarding the gearing ratios on ib5 boxes iv gotten my hands on a front starter ib5 off of an escort Acapulco 1.4 cvh wanting to know if this is fine to use as is or if to swap the bell housing on to the original box off my gti
  3. i think i saw that one advertised on facebook, got a right bargain there pat! is that still the original gelcoat

     

    yeah looks like the original gelcoat to me, looks like someone started working on it and then just gave up, at £70 i couldnt say no

  4. well thats certainly shaping up

     

    i didnt think there were any evotech bumpers left!

    Been on the lookout for one for a few years, dropped on this one for a bloody good price lol

  5. I have a question, converting my 1800 zetec gti engine to have a front mounted starter been offered the gearbox from a 1996 mk6 1.4cvh which I'm told will fit is this true also what gearbox will this be ib5, bc etc as not wanting to screw the ratios up
  6. Thank for that.  The Engine is looking great by the way.  I really like the little touches like the anodised bolts for the cam cover.

    It is a bit obsessive lol thinking of the best looking way to attach things the anodised bolts were a pain wrapping my Allen keys in paper so as to not chip the anodising off

  7. Sorry to hear about that.

     

    There's something I've been wondering about for a while over whether or not a magnetic clutch from a air con pump would line up properly if everything was machined so it could be fitted to the power steering pump. It would be handy to turn it on and off for more precise steering feel and might even save a quid or two on a long journey.

     

    Anyway I'd like to ask if you could take a photo showing both pumps from the same angle as this pic?

    Refurbished the AC pulley and crank pulley so they're back on all I need now is the new alternator and can get the belt on then it's time to work on the injector wiring and finding somewhere to put the coil pack
