hello from France!
« on: January 16, 2014, 11:11:06 AM »
hello

it been a while since I registered on this site and I've never presented.
I'm french and I caught the virus from ford or rather he caught me!

I currently have a Ford Taunus mk1 (cortina mk3 equivalent) with a 2.0 pinto.
My project is to put a single turbo engine boa.

I've traveled this forum and it helped me!
Some already know me as mike (buying parts).

excuse me for my terrible English!

Soon I would put pictures of my toy.

Nicolas

Hi,

Nice car you have there.
The Mk1 Taunus is a beautiful car to see, just too bad there aren`t many left..

And don`t worry about your English, it`s good enough ;D
Keep it very sideways..

Welcome along  ;D

Good to see there's French people with the Ford bug, thought it was only us on this little island  :lol:

Looking forward to seeing the progress with the 24v in the Taunus though

Thank you for your welcome.
For the project is expected to stay with a stock motor in a first time .
I'm missing a few things for this team but I gradually.

I already have the manifolds, 440cc injectors , AAC BOB , I retrieve a complete redo beams ( and this is not easy... )

Regarding the gearbox, I look for a toyota supra R154 but I do not know how to adapt and find the right clutch... if you have any ideas let me know!
To the drive shaft it will be a hybrid between that of the box and the bridge.
Engine management I would go for a MegaSquirt 2 or 3.
For the rear axle I can have a Mustang 8 " but I'm afraid that the ratio ( 2.70 I think) is too long .

All those who will want to help me clarify some points are welcome !
And even just to chat with passionate...

Nicolas

Ps: I was wrong it is not Mike but Mikey J that I bought the parts.

That's not good.
I hope you'll get your photo's back.

The few damaged photo's here are not important,yours are.

ah well it happens mate. overhere you find a few taunus still on the road, i spotted a beautifull white GT with really small alloy wheels, a black vinyl roof, and i've been told it's a 2.0 v6, was just a stunning car!

bonjour. i cant write the french language, but in my travels to france i've learned enough to eat and find what i want in le pattiserie, only the counting is still quite hard for me :wacko:
