Hello!
« on: March 02, 2017, 23:08:58 PM »
Thought I should probably introduce myself after registering over 3 years ago!

Anyway, I'm Liam, from Norfolk, however currently at university in Sheffield.

Have always been a fan of Fords, first car was a crappy 1.8 Mondeo, shortly followed by a 2.0 Capri.

Sold the 2.0 Capri as I was running it into the ground, replaced it with a Mondeo ST TDCI.

Recently bought another Capri, this time a 2.8 running a 2.9 24v BOB engine from a Scorpio.  Had it since November, and while I love the car, it's driving me nuts.  Wretched thing turned into a garden ornament over Christmas!!  :angry: :angry:

So, I'm here to help where I can, and to hopefully receive some help and advice from you lovely people on the 24v V6 subforum!

Very bad wiring indeed!

Still on the look out for a replacement ECU, PATS and keys that all match, that I can straight swap into my car.

Contacted various breakers on eBay, ECU/remapping companies and whatnot and am yet to have any luck.

I think you would have more luck buying a running donor scorpio 24v than buying  a loom,ecu ect.

You can always sell the parts you don't need.
