Hello from Dunfermline Fife!
« on: December 10, 2012, 20:25:34 PM »
Hi folks ive just been sent over here as ive been told this is the place to be if doing a BOB/BOA conversion. Im on a few other forums as well. to keep in the loop with my cars I have a RS500 3dr rep with a 3.5 V8 in it and a 430BHP Mk2 Focus. but im starting my other 3dr project which will be ready once I get the BOB in. Feel free to shower me with your knowledge on the conversion as im going in pretty blind.

Cheers George, I only went BOB as it was a whole car that the gearbox is away on so was ideal for what I needed. And cheap  ;) haha.

I know a few lads from Dundee and Aberdeen etc in the Ford scene think your the first from Arbroath tho  :mellow: My Project is a Xr4i but its had the 3dr window mod in the back.

Great sierras, the focus is not my cup of tea, but it goes like stink i think. I bet the v8 sierra goes like stink to, any specs on the engine, or a dyno movie?

The Focus is the best all round car ive ever driven/owned and not many cars stand a chance on a dry day when the 470ftlb of torque gets some grip  :P

The V8 has,
 
Vittesse heads
Road cam
Twin SUs
Twin K&Ns
Mallory dizzy
7mm High temp leads
Holley fuel pump
Huge alloy radiator
Kit car race manifolds
Ashley comp system with stainless 3' outward rolled tailpipe.

I have a fuel injection system for it sitting which I will be fitting over the festive period. That comes with 3 ECU's so I will be on the dyno to find out what the best one for the car is, so I will post a video up then  ;)

the v8s a bonnie looking beastie, when I had a range rover for a while and looked into the new cast alloy block for it, 4.6ltr cast by Cosworth I believe? Time for a bank loan though just to run it LOL.
Photos soon.

I owned a 1.6 3 door fase 1 mk 1, drove 'well' but i was very tired after 200 km driving, did 1500 in the sierra and could do some more, had lots of coffee but wanted to be in southern france as soon as i could. I do have scorpio leather seats in the sierra, but dont have that amount of torque...
