Ho 130bhp spec inlet manifold

There are a few subtle differences between the engine-side loom on with the cast manifold and the plastic manifold in your car.  IIRC the TPS, air temp sensor, air bypass valve and possibibly the injectors.  This can be solved fairly easily with a little rewiring but the HO inlet will do little on it's own and the 1.6 head flows so poorly that it's not really worth the effort.  If the car is one you intend to keep and spend money on then I'd recommend getting a 2.0 conversion rather than try to get more performance out of the 1.6  You can use the HO manifold on with the 2.0 then.

Managed to get the car running however its running extremely roughly - sounding like a subaru.

 

The revs are going up and down between 500 & 1500 rpm non stop.

 

Can anyone post a pic of their cast efi manifold and where each breather connects etc please?

 

Also could running on my old 1.6 ecu cause this ?

 

Thanks

The best ecu would be an early escort xr3i 130 spec.

 

The EASIEST and the one i use. Is a mk1 mondeo pre pats 115 'blob' ecu.

 

Follow the guide for fitting a mondeo ecu. Takes about fifteen minutes to install and then all is well in the world!

Check my build thread. Mine started as an x reg 1.6 finnesse
