Cool Hello from the bigger down under.. 😉

Names Kev.

I'm Irish and have been living in Aus for 6 years. Just purchased a (reasonably rare for these parts) 2003 that I hope to do some racing with as well as using as a street car.

Worked with ford in Ireland as a mechanic for about 4 years where I had a 2000 model 1.4ltr 3dr focus that my younger brother now "minds" 😳 for me. Love that car..

Anyways, my search for a power works supercharger kit has started! 😂😂

Here is a few pictures including some of bringing it home and looking out over the South Australian plains east of Adelaide.

Also have a 2007 LS 2.0 duratec focus that's probably going to be passed on now.

And here are a few of my old 1.4ltr Zetec that I've owned for 12 years now. My younger brother drives it back in Ireland 🇮🇪.

I had put 56,000 miles in this in the first 20 months of ownership! No small feat considering it never left the island!! 😂 Thankfully some of my friends bought their cars by then too so the trips were shared.. 😎



*that isn't me in the second pic.. 😅 This picture was taken last year (I think) when it was in for its yearly roadworthy test.

Thanks! The ST definitely needs some love, but I picked it up real cheap. So it's perfect for what I'm looking for. Plus it's the fastest mk1 that was sold in Aus! 😂 (My heart lies with the mk1 😉)

Welcome!

That ST170 is what we got as an 'SVT' model here, very few differences between them.

Only the Euro vs USA differences set them apart, like bumper size and HVAC controls.
