  1. Pretty straight forward, just need to modify engine mount really and obviously play with wiring...
  2. Yeh the mk5 was stripped down for parts marshy, broke my heart stripping that and still to this day regret doing it! Times became hard though so had to be done Still kept with the mk5 theme tho, just moved over to Vauxhall and got myself a mk5 Astra vxr Nurburgring now lol and just got myself a nice little mk4 escort project last week haha How many of you guys are still kicking it in a escort?
  3. Nice to see a couple of old names still on here! Definitely doesn't seem as booming as the good ol days... Lol Iv just bought myself another escort hence coming on here haha, got me a mk5 Astra vxr Nurburgring as my main daily toy and now a mk4 escort 3dr to play around with Who else is still floating about anyway?
  4. What sort of figure would you have in mind
  5. So there is, I think that is a cossie tb aswel. Don't fancy selling it do ya
  6. Do you know what management your car is running? The cossie tb has the big cylinder looking idle control valve and the front on that pic I posted...
  7. Yeh I broke my project up in 2011... http://i102.photobucket.com/albums/m106/tezmanian_devil/escort%20project/96e490d6.jpg http://i102.photobucket.com/albums/m106/tezmanian_devil/escort%20project/fbdfc5c8.jpg Do you still have the cossie tb on it? I had to have the manifold cut down so that I could get a 90 bend to clear the brake reservoir!
  8. Haha, fancy seeing you guys still on here, I havnt been on here for an age! How you all doing? Anyone getting a twitch on to get another escort? Lol
  9. morning all, its been a while since I came on here last so i thought id share my current project with you all. I bought it pretty much as it is but its quite ropey and needs fine tuning to bring it back to it former glory!! heres a brief run down on the spec (that I know of) when I got the car revo remap coilovers 18" bbs reps front mount intercooler milltec down pipe s/s exhaust system (unsure of make) bigger audi tt front brake setup (again unsure of exact setup) boost gauge 7" lcd pioneer head unit angle head lights this is how the front of the car looked when I got it http://i102.photobucket.com/albums/m106/tezmanian_devil/vw%20bora/3F916AE5-0747-44F7-9BA0-C1FA3D212EF3.jpg http://i102.photobucket.com/albums/m106/tezmanian_devil/vw%20bora/9AF489A9-FA94-4D32-8A1A-4F295CFE2486.jpg needless to say, it looked ridiculous, why the last owner hacked half the bumper off I do not know so I went about removing and refitting the intercooler properly and fitting a full bumper back on, turns out the ic was only bolted to the front bumper anyway so as soon as I took the bumper off it just fell to the floor lol http://i102.photobucket.com/albums/m106/tezmanian_devil/vw%20bora/59BF38C8-B4EA-4B7A-B092-EA1E61C08F85.jpg and now refitted using some homemade brackets http://i102.photobucket.com/albums/m106/tezmanian_devil/vw%20bora/CC96E1E7-E158-4A12-BE48-64A23D80ECC8.jpg and then with the new bumper on... http://i102.photobucket.com/albums/m106/tezmanian_devil/vw%20bora/B9B7C9DC-798C-4F3D-8916-0D104B5A0B76.jpg much better imo! with that now done I decided I didn't like the angle the eye headlights so I got some originals and with the aid of a heat gun and some black paint I made my own modified jobbies http://i102.photobucket.com/albums/m106/tezmanian_devil/vw%20bora/5F7A426D-607F-4C8B-B29E-93B60738A7A4.jpg black looks much better up against the origianls, what dyou reckon? and then fitted up... http://i102.photobucket.com/albums/m106/tezmanian_devil/vw%20bora/FA32B5A5-D21D-4DC8-A0F4-886055174F78.jpg http://i102.photobucket.com/albums/m106/tezmanian_devil/vw%20bora/32DD330E-C449-4087-955D-2DEC3B0871DD.jpg I couldn't find a grill piece for the bumper at the scrap yard so I decided to do this instead... http://i102.photobucket.com/albums/m106/tezmanian_devil/vw%20bora/863512A9-D4D0-4537-8F65-1E9AC3481396.jpg so I now have a half decent looking front end, just need to gt a debadged grill and smooth off the bonnet and old number plate recess in the bumper, might get a square number plate and mount it abit neater aswel at some point... I do have a few more pics but I cant be bothered to load them all up right now, maybe tomorrow? im not goin to lie though, im really missin having a escort now! lol where have they all gone
  10. well done matey! looks good! good I need another escort to play with!! you fancy a swop for a modified vw bora tdi? haha I might be up your way soon meeting someone so could grab a beer or something?
  11. I like it, some serious effort going into this!! hi-specs look like my old ones, does one of the calipers have a black smudge on the face that wont come off?
  12. imrc packs up and costs £240 for a new one!! its a little alloy box fitted behind the engine on the bulk head with a cable coming out goin to the inlet, get someone to start the car while looking to see if the cable pulls a flap on the inlet.
  13. thought id put these up here an see if I get any interest. first up is my 98 bmw 323i (manual) couple, bit of an impulse buy this one lol its a lovely car to drive and doesn't hang about but just isn't for me really, its mot'd until august but no tax, all original with no mods, tan leather interior, dual climate control, ac, original cassette deck, body work is in very good condition with just a small bit of rust bubbling through on the rear archs around the size of a 50 pence piece. all alloys are good and tyres have plenty of tread, theres a matching spare which also has a good tyre fitted!! all original tool kit, first aid kit and glove box torch still present aswel!! the only known fault with this car is that it occasionally jumps out of first gear but is quite a rare occurrence! im not entirely sure why it does it but never really bother me. asking price is £749 ono because I don't use it and its just sitting on my drive atm... may consider part x's http://i102.photobucket.com/albums/m106/tezmanian_devil/for%20sale/B519B1BE-CA7E-431A-A232-27D1FC8AEA5F.jpg http://i102.photobucket.com/albums/m106/tezmanian_devil/for%20sale/435297C4-BEBE-476D-88F0-4404DC37F186.jpg http://i102.photobucket.com/albums/m106/tezmanian_devil/for%20sale/5DB31F52-5DC7-41F6-BFC9-F549C70D7AF1.png next up is my 94 Subaru impreza awd turbo, mot'd and taxed until may, I took this as part x off a friend who wanted other car I was selling. body works pretty good for age, not much rust to speak of, but the bonnet and front splitter need abit of love really. interiors nice and clean with no rips, it has been lightly modified as follows... 16" gold advan lightweight racing wheels with good tyres all round. boost gauge mounted on the dash cd/dvd head unit full ss exhaust with decat lowered on shocks and springs Clifford alarm, full closure with turbo timer looking for £1500 ono or part x http://i102.photobucket.com/albums/m106/tezmanian_devil/for%20sale/C556B389-6D2B-4B87-A373-69B03029055F.jpg http://i102.photobucket.com/albums/m106/tezmanian_devil/for%20sale/373798E2-A8D0-442F-9631-2487348E5096.jpg http://i102.photobucket.com/albums/m106/tezmanian_devil/for%20sale/9AB89731-2E8F-40DA-A4DA-E86A1705A215.jpg http://i102.photobucket.com/albums/m106/tezmanian_devil/for%20sale/79E9DD5A-5978-4846-B061-003A29568418.jpg http://i102.photobucket.com/albums/m106/tezmanian_devil/for%20sale/07611D41-F43A-431E-98D6-FF8B5F23F65C.jpg both cars are located in Eastbourne, east sussex feel free to call or txt if you have any questions: 07975676249
