  1. EDIT: Might as well throw some pics up seen as though my PB is open .. I did a guide and posted it on RS2000 forum and they moved it to a Memebers only section lol .. £20 a side: http://i127.photobucket.com/albums/p124/rosspec/Focus%20ABS/SSL23101gun.jpg All the parts: http://i127.photobucket.com/albums/p124/rosspec/Focus%20ABS/SSL23179.jpg Hub machined: http://i127.photobucket.com/albums/p124/rosspec/Focus%20ABS/SSL23107.jpg http://i127.photobucket.com/albums/p124/rosspec/Focus%20ABS/SSL23110.jpg Stub: 15mm drill required. http://i127.photobucket.com/albums/p124/rosspec/Focus%20ABS/SSL23128.jpg http://i127.photobucket.com/albums/p124/rosspec/Focus%20ABS/SSL23121.jpg Assembly: http://i127.photobucket.com/albums/p124/rosspec/Focus%20ABS/SSL23197-1.jpg http://i127.photobucket.com/albums/p124/rosspec/Focus%20ABS/SSL23240.jpg Take it easy!

    Been a while since I've updated this .. Might as well pop some updates on here .. New Supercharger . Whipple 2.3 (2.3 Litres or air per turn) http://i127.photobucket.com/albums/p124/rosspec/3V%20Engine%20Build/image_zpsa85efd24.jpg Then cut and welded a Lightning inlet to the 3v. http://i127.photobucket.com/albums/p124/rosspec/3V%20Engine%20Build/image_zps9d891351.jpg Then a Built Manley forged block. http://i127.photobucket.com/albums/p124/rosspec/image_zpsa6d5f55e.jpg Mustang GT500 Mono blade. http://i127.photobucket.com/albums/p124/rosspec/3V%20Engine%20Build/image_zps236d40ff.jpg Aiming for 650 at the wheels ..
  3. Look for Focus 2.0 rear discs as they are £20 a side from a scrappy .. Slightly smaller but allot cheaper. Need to machine the hub down for the Escort collector ring and drill the hub out for the pick up .. ST170 hand brake cable .. Puma 1.7 16v Brake lines ..
  4. Kinda made the news here for a while. Very Very sad events for sure. Another gun nut shot a few more the other day. Nothing's gonna change. 2nd Amendment. The Americans take there rights very serious.
  5. Most probably. Did you line hone the mains? Probably don't need to on a 4 pot. Don't look like ARP's so no worries. With a stock crank, no. If it was steel crank then you'd have to. Nope, no ARP's supplied so no ARP's fitted. Yeah you bet. It's common practice to line hone the mains on the V8 Modular with either the two or four bolt ARP main studs. Using stock OEM bolts / Crank then it's not nesessary. Am gonna get a line hone on my build regardless.
  6. Most probably. Did you line hone the mains? Probably don't need to on a 4 pot. Don't look like ARP's so no worries.
  7. Wonderful. Nice Mahle bottom end. You fitting ARP Main kit to match the rod bolts?
  8. Motor looks nice. Same old on here I suppose. Pop on now and then to see what the crack is.
  9. Ah you should see the debates on the US forums. They should restrict assault rifles and fully auto hand pistols. You need a special license to operate fully auto in most states., this should be rectified IMO. A ban on .50 hand guns would be a good idea. I was in Montana last week, it's amazing what could be bought over the counter. M16's, AK47's. You can even buy junior versions. Hand guns have a 11 - 14 day cooling off period I think. Anyhow, people can conceal there as well so avoid bar fights. Oh yeah Non American who even dare to suggest stricter gun laws are instantly bashed and branded Anti-American. I chuckle.

    Some specific configurations can see a 30% total powertrain loss on these big trucks. Auto tranny and 3:73 rear gears ain't helping.

    Forgot about this thread. The Ford Fair reminder email woke me up. Small vid of the run near the end. Hit 11psi and held 10.4psi. The guy messing with shift points. http://i127.photobucket.com/albums/p124/rosspec/Roushcharger%20F150/th_IMG_0278.jpg We figure over 400 rear wheel or five n half hundred at the crank.

  13. Certainly a handy fella. Must have plenty of time on his hands or an understanding boss (Unless he is the boss then forget the last comment)

    Ah well. Found out the charger is a snake-bite conversion, internal overdrive spins the rotors faster. Means an extra 6lb of boost. Well that would have melted the engine down in no time with the 4lb lower. So this 4lb lower ring is now NO GOOD!! FFS http://i127.photobucket.com/albums/p124/rosspec/Roushcharger%20F150/SCLPF.jpg Anyhow, the blower is currently being worked on. The rest of the parts will be here on the 14th.
  15. Ha Ha Ha So what's the answer then
