yeah i had to cut the fire wall. i could have gotten it in there with out cutting it but the engine would have sit to low and the car would have had to sit up real high and look like a 4x4 truck.



what about a rwd zetec?

So you are gonna be running how high for the suspension? Would be sweet if you could have a nice drop and still be safe. Would look nicer than most of the rwd foci that have to sit so high.

yes it would be basically the same thing but you would not have to worry about changing any of the engine management and gauges... that would be the only difference.

new and improved welder. i took it back and they gave me a new one. i also went and got some gas while i was out.

i got the cross over and collector all tacked up. i need to move it a 1/4 inch over. it is to close to the radiator hose. that wont be to hard to fix. :welder:

also cut the inner finder well out so i will have somewhere to put the turbo, lol. little mock up of the turbo and wg.

awesome. how you like that welder? i have a harbor freight welder but mine doesnt use gas. it works but it spatters like crazy. could be i suck at welding but i think a gas one would work much better.
