hi no as im away then just the way things paned out and I didn't think car would be on road it still might not be yet , yes ive not forgotten your coffee , looking forward to getting car back together tho .

The coffee was just a joke..
I was just wondering if your car would be @ FordFair this year..

Got my Fiesta a bit tuned up and am taking it on the track again.
(now @ 138hp and 240Nm torque, a lot more than the 100 hp it came with)
Keep it very sideways..

Very nice indeed Gerry  ;D

Great that your car is finally on the road again.

Once the weather gets a bit better, you can enjoy driving it ;D

its now all going ok dare I say im not quite sure if the T4 turbo is the best match its a little laggy low down but fine from around 2500 rpm I still got to take it back to Tommy for him to adjust the map live so that might help , will see what he says about different turbo , I went with T4 cos it bolted straight on so didn't need a new manifold ,
