No problem.  Are you going for bike carbs or ITB's?

 

neither more along lines of the rover M16 - T Series inlet manifold mod.. basicaly removing the horrible restrictive and poorly designed plastic zetec inlet manifold for better air flow hopefully be a bit more responsive and look better

Who says the plastic manifold doesnt flow well?

 

What have you done to require better flow?

 

Whats wrong with a HO manifold as an upgrade?

 

How will you plug your temp sensor into the rover manifold?

 

Or the idle control valve.....or tps as all the plugs will be wrong anf the ford ecu may not even be able to read the rover sensor signals

The Rover manifold has mostly been used for turbo conversion but there are some in N/A installs too.  MDA Motorsport sell the baseplate and an adapter plate for a 2 litre throttle body.and reckon that minimal wiring changes are required.  On an N/A engine there's probably little point unless you've had head work done and are running fairly aggressive cams.

 

According to Burton the limit on the 130 spec 1.8 with HO manifold is about 150 BHP and about 160BHP on the Mondeo 2 litre which has a plastic manifold when running a Webber Alpha setup.

I say it doesn't flow well

 

Just want the engine to breathe easier

 

Ho is ugly as hell pipes running over the rocker no thanks

 

Never said I was getting a rover manifold

 

Again never said was getting a rover mani

 

But loads of people have done the rover manifold mod and it's not bothered there car in the slightest

 

(What's the point in swapping a 1.6 engine to a 1.8 when the difference is minimal?)

Yes 40hp is so minimal....

Got a 1.8 from a GTi when I killed my second 1.6.  With a Mangnex system, Viper induction kit and a mapped unichip it made a real 137BHP or so, that was with the plastic inlet and only 105/115 spec cams.

 

A Rover or similar is probably not a bad idea if you if your you have other mods in the future.  It might be worth chatting to MDA since they do the Rover conversion and will be better able tell you what you can expect to gain and what mods work best with it.
