iv never been so amused by one thing


dash by Jack Strathdee, on Flickr

i honestly <3 this dash haha


-------


got my sparco wheel and life line hub sorted ! finishes off the inside nicely!


wheel by Jack Strathdee, on Flickr


also got a custom fuel swirl pot getting made , so ordered a heap of fittings and line and fuel filter and 044 pump :D


fittings by Jack Strathdee, on Flickr

got a white line adjustable rear rool bar coming , last track day tomorrow and the poly bush kit is getting fitted next week! not looking forward to stripping it all down tbh! haha rusty !


-------------

first time the focus didnt make it back up the road :( water pipe blew got that fixed ,and the water fooked my 3 week old alternator :(



also wishing i never started doing this on my drive haha


photo(39) by Jack Strathdee, on Flickr

the rear is finally apart and iv sent it off for powder coating and got all new nuts and bolts from CarPartsExpress and finaly going to fit my poly bush kit!
----------

well thats the worse job done imo! full car strip down on the underside , everything off and got blasted and then sent to the powder coaters and painted in subsea black paint , fingers crossed that should be it done for life haha

fully powerflex bushs and all new nuts and bolts from ford and car parts express (a scary price tbh! the mark up on these must be crazy! some of the bolts are £15 each!)

but its done ! 6 days turn around which is not bad imo!

Need to do a shout out to my best mate kev from leathen motors ! for only being 22 the boys skill level of work is second to non! also nexis for getting the coating done in double quick time!


Done by Jack Strathdee, on Flickr

shiny!!


--------


ok so for the new engine turbo set up , i needed shot of my scorpion 2.5" system , 3" system was made to order , 4 1/2 weeks later it turns up!


rsbitss (1) by Jack Strathdee, on Flickr



rsbitss (2) by Jack Strathdee, on Flickr


rsbitss (3) by Jack Strathdee, on Flickr

0.5" makes all the difference !


rsbits (1) by Jack Strathdee, on Flickr

much smoother design


rsbits (2) by Jack Strathdee, on Flickr

excuse the underside , its in for mot wed , getting waxoiled then!


rsbitss (4) by Jack Strathdee, on Flickr

also fitted my race rear anti roll bar , it took a month to come from auz!


rsbits (4) by Jack Strathdee, on Flickr


and another power add'er!


rsbits (8) by Jack Strathdee, on Flickr


rsbits (9) by Jack Strathdee, on Flickr


rsbits (7) by Jack Strathdee, on Flickr


thanks!

------------

right another update! . Was late home from my last trip so iv only had 10 days to do things and get stuff sorted!

first things first it to say thanks to a mate , scotty , aka Kerr Sport

managed to get my cage fitted on his tot while i was offshore

i love it ! by far the best looking bolt in cage imo!


photo 3(1) by Jack Strathdee, on Flickr



DSC_0017 by Jack Strathdee, on Flickr


DSC_0007 by Jack Strathdee, on Flickr


DSC_0013edz by Jack Strathdee, on Flickr


also got the battery tray fitted , but haven't ran the cable yet (red wire under the passenger seat) as im indecisive where to drill the bulk head

also did order a universal weld in bar kit for the seats , turns out the focus is too fat and iv had to order more bar so i can make my own kit up ! total pain tbh! as im away offshore soon and its not turned up yet!!



bought this gear stick tower , it shifts the hole mech about 7" up , so the gear stick is closer but doesn't increase the throw , believe it or not its a gen ford motorsport part lol

down side! , i think i might have to hack my dash to bits to get it to fit! ;(

photo 3 by Jack Strathdee, on Flickr



also bought this engine crank breather ! standard one cant cope with 350+

photo 4 by Jack Strathdee, on Flickr

since the air bags are gone for good i thought id chop on and remove all the extra sensors and loom , only did the rear half of the car , still got the front loom to chop up but i think il leave that untill the engines out!

said sensors burred into the loam!


photo 2(2) by Jack Strathdee, on Flickr

wires!


photo 1(3) by Jack Strathdee, on Flickr


MORE wires ! haha



photo(42) by Jack Strathdee, on Flickr


also got the loom stripped and then wrapped the loom in proper loom tape (u can see it in the photos above )

also my waste gate turned up tial mvr 44mm , rather large now i hold in it my hand :/ hope it fits in the bay!

photo(41) by Jack Strathdee, on Flickr


and just a semi arty shot of the motor lurking!


lurking2 by Jack Strathdee, on Flickr


so iv got the following waiting on turning up but i can bet they will turn up once im away! :

Swirl pot (seriously been taking its time)
Sachs 4 paddle clutch
Custom 4-1 manifold
GTX3071r


custom sized swirl pot from race-tech


Swirl pot by Jack Strathdee, on Flickr

RS mani by Jack Strathdee, on Flickr


That's all for now !


----------------

so started laying out the fuel pump/external fuel set up , this consists of a bosch 044 pump , sytech filter and checkvalve and a custom racetech swirl pot so it all sits flush with in the wheel well so i can then fire wall it for MSA regs


swirlpotsetup by Jack Strathdee, on Flickr


but its 1oC out side and blowing a wind so i thought f-that and came back inside and just built up the turbo manifold just for something to do lol

porsche 996 GT3 clutch 4 paddle (clearly) going to be a complicated woman in traffic but should do the job nicely when out on track , im quite on/off with my clutch anyway! im sure the box will love this!

Big thanks to Ben at AMD for sorting this out for me :D

------------

minor update , plumbing now done . just got to wire it all up and take the feeds from the fuel tank ect ect


Fuel set up by Jack Strathdee, on Flickr


-------------------

another bit of the puzzle :) thanks to demon performance centre for this one


fly1 by Jack Strathdee, on Flickr

also finally got the bonnet home! lol but think il be defo waiting till the better weather before its going on


bonnet (3) by Jack Strathdee, on Flickr


bonnet (1) by Jack Strathdee, on Flickr



also got a new mount for my go pro , mounted on my roll cage , looks alright but its kinda dark , but looks alright tho! im sure i can brighten it up a little on the camera settings

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kB3PL_5lwTc


----------------


Another bit came today , excited about this one as iv heard nothing but awesome things and iv drove a few rally cars and they all have locking diffs and i love the way they drive so this should suit me down to the bone :D

Kazz Adjustable 1.5 Way diff :D



diff by Jack Strathdee, on Flickr

(and incase your wondering thats gearbox oil its covered in , and yeh i hate the smell of it too! )

Thanks to paul @ co-ordsport for this !


-------


another new bit , AEM water meth injection kit , bought this purely to try and keep the EGT's down lower and in turn increase reliability , well thats what i told my self when i bought it anyway lol , going to have it set up so it only comes on on high boost as fingers crossed the car shouldnt need it on low boost !


watermeth by Jack Strathdee, on Flickr


also going to take the dash back out and remove the heater matrix and A/C exchanger and some more loom stripping of anything thats not needed , and hopefully get a hole drilled to run my battery cable through the fire wall and then plumb in a small race/rally fan so i can still see where im going lol


well since im now saving for the engine im officially skint haha but iv been buying little bits and bobs and now started on the "free" mods lol

weight , this is a big thing , and less weight means faster every where!

so since im 99% sure i cant fit the gear stick tower with the heater matrix in the car , im binning it all and got a little light weight heater that should help "warm" the car or demist the window , il be fitting a heated front screen as well


Untitled by Jack Strathdee, on Flickr


and staying in theam , did this today


Untitled by Jack Strathdee, on Flickr

there is a small tare on the pass side wheel tub, so il get that welded up ( i had something heavy in the boot years ago and it bashed the side but only dented the tub , was just being noise and had a look and turns out its ripped the metal so will get that stitched back up) also found 4 half rust holes , not sure whats on the under side but there is 4 holes that are all the same , you can see it in the photo as like grey marks , will get the grinder out and weld them up

so after half a day with the heat gun i had removed a grand total off...... 2kg :/ makes me wonder if there's much point in doing the front lol

Right got some more little jobs done today ,


Got the dash out , then in , then out , then in (this went on for some time , and i had to remove the front cage to get it out )

but with a bit of trimming it fits!


photo 1(4) by Jack Strathdee, on Flickr


iv had to loose the bottom part of the heater (did the foot side of things)

but i get to keep the standard heater witch although will weigh a ton , allows me to keep the car warm or cool :D

while i had the dash out i ran the power cable for my battery in the boot, now i could of ran the cable through the door gromet , but due to me wanting to do motorsport with the car , if... any thing ever got bashed (door/wing) theres a high chance it would cut my battery cable and thats the last thing i want so i drilled a hole in the fire wall and chucked the cable through it (wrapped in some tape to hopefully stop it rubbing though)

so this then allowed me to fit my battery in the boot!


photo 4(1) by Jack Strathdee, on Flickr

thanks to G at carpartsexpress for the crimps and cable :)

then just because i had it lying about i fitted my 2nd LED light strip wired off the boot switch , just makes seeing things in the boot a bit easier


Boot by Jack Strathdee, on Flickr


yes theres still masking tape on the cage as im not finished spraying in the boot yet :)

---------


Well thats me bit the bullet so to say! , just placed my order for a fully custom zetec engine rated to 500bhp+ , should be a monster of a engine!

anyway ordered some more parts , got to go down to dundee UPS as the turnips dont have a Aberdeen base.... seriously :/


some more parts that didnt come via UPShite

Monster KN!!!!4" flange , then 9" tall and tappered from 6" bottom to 4 5/8's" at the top!! you can seriously probably fit two KN Gen2's for the RS inside this thing! lol



filter by Jack Strathdee, on Flickr



The KN with the morrette pod , should do the job nicely of getting the cold air right where i need it !


photo 2(3) by Jack Strathdee, on Flickr


also wrapped my manifold in that DEI titanium stuff , took ages and used about 65 foot of the 1" wrap!!! , still need to nip the cable ties and then chop the ends of them but it does look sweet as!


manifold by Jack Strathdee, on Flickr


Well some will know the body work is the poor part on my car , it really does need a full respray , but the body work and new wheels is 2014's project , so tomororo im going to machine polish the car up so i can get some decent pics , untill then heres the bonnet!



Bonnet by Jack Strathdee, on Flickr

im not going to lie , the catchs stick out (as it just them being there and not actually sticking proud ect more than they actually do) , but it now means on track i can open the bonnet up with out shutting of the engine if something happens

failing that imo i think they are in the best place for the catchs ,( seen some others and they didnt look right imo)

the joys!

---------


Any way , gave the car a quick clean , but had the camera on ISO1600 (for those that dont know cameras this basically is a setting that you can use in low lighting that makes the pictures come out brighter (ideal if your shooting rally cars in a dark part of a forest) but the higher ISO you have the more "noise" (pixelated look) you get on your photos , so after 200 photos i realised i had the camera on this setting :/ (since my car wasn't moving it wasn't needed and it effects the picture quality) so i went home and these were the only 5 i was sorta happy with

DSC_0100 by Jack Strathdee, on Flickr


DSC_0091 by Jack Strathdee, on Flickr


DSC_0034 by Jack Strathdee, on Flickr


DSC_0024 by Jack Strathdee, on Flickr







on another note , engine is now 3 weeks away ! but while i was having a look though my photos of various engine bays i realised i couldn't use the stock FPR with the new intakes fuel rail , so another £200 spent that i hadn't planned for for a new regulator and fittings !

now other than the FMIC and gear box bits i think i basically have it all!



-------


ta guys!

well i took some finally shots of the car , just in case it doesn't go back together when i take it apart! lol



DSC_00666 by Jack Strathdee, on Flickr


DSC_00622 by Jack Strathdee, on Flickr


DSC_00554 by Jack Strathdee, on Flickr


DSC_0041 by Jack Strathdee, on Flickr


DSC_0029 by Jack Strathdee, on Flickr



only other progress is that i forgot i needed a FPR , so bought one of them



rsbits (4) by Jack Strathdee, on Flickr


did a qick bolt up to just have a look for any issues


rsbits (1) by Jack Strathdee, on Flickr



And there was! , basicly the positioning of the wastegate meant that the screamer pipe hit the decat , not ideal , but then you were limited by how far you could turn it due to the fittings on it which left me with this prob!



rsbits (2) by Jack Strathdee, on Flickr


resolved !


rsbits (3) by Jack Strathdee, on Flickr


and a final shot of the turbo/mani/wastegate/intake set up!


rsbits (5) by Jack Strathdee, on Flickr

also plumbed in the AEM water/meth kit and did a test with it and it all works fine


photo(47) by Jack Strathdee, on Flickr


Also ordered a 1 off intercooler from SpecR , its going to be the 2nd one fitted to a mk1 focus , but iv been trying for ages to get this intercooler made up (not nes with specR) but its the garret core and imo its the best out there , so it should be here in about 2 weeks time

and got all new syncros and bearings for the gearbox and going to get it freshend up when the engine comes out !



----------

Sadly dont have any photos , will be down tomorrow again so will get some more then


Friday about 2:30pm , got the car down into the shed and got it up onto axel stands and removed the front of the car , 8pm engine and box were out the car , got home about 10pm

Saturday , got up at 9am had to go to a parts place to get a new tensioner and some break pipes as some were corroded so thought it would be easier and neater to fit new ones when the engine is out , got down to the shed about 11am , built up the new engine fitting the new intake , exhaust manifold and external oil pump set up and new flywheel and clutch , bolted the box onto the new engine and had it back in the car by 6pm , then just plumbed in the new vacuum pipes and other bits and bobs and called it quits at 10pm as it was my birthday!

Sunday , got down made up the fuel lines and system in the engine bay , set the oil pump pressure and then fired the engine up at 10am! , it lives! , spent the rest of the day putting on the turbo/wastegate finished at 6pm

Found a few issues on the car, needs a new drive shaft bearing , blead the breaks , a CV boot is got a pin hole in it , so im ordering all that and hopefully that should be all done tomorrow and then i can fill the box with oil ,

still waiting on my inter-cooler , should of been here Thursday past , hoping to get it on Wednesday so i can then put the car back together and fire her up and let here build up water pressure so i can check for leaks and then its just a case of getting it down to sarbe for a custom decat and screamer pipe and hopefully a awesome map and some nice figures!


will get some photos tomorrow of the oil girl!

-----------



Well got down tonight swapped the bearing over on the half shaft , got a CV boot from fords, wrong oane :wall: so took apart my spare shaft and swapped boots , bled the clutch , bled the breaks



so this was friday just before i took it out


engineout by Jack Strathdee, on Flickr




now for this oil pump , this is a front on look of it so you can see how much lower the pump sits


oil pump front by Jack Strathdee, on Flickr




oil pump side by Jack Strathdee, on Flickr


oil pump 2 , shows how close it is to the shaft


oilpumpplub by Jack Strathdee, on Flickr



nearly there! just this FMIC to get and fire it on and its going down the road this weekend to sabre !


engineshot by Jack Strathdee, on Flickr





and the last one to show her sitting on all 4's again! :)


deck by Jack Strathdee, on Flickr



hopefully get this intercoler and get its front back on and then i can sort the idel out and then il be happy! untill then notthing much i can do now!

------
Well last update for a while i think !

quick photo of it down on the ground and back to gether (well didnt put the lights back on as i was 99% sure the car wasnt going to go on the back of the pick up !


frs1 by Jack Strathdee, on Flickr



out in the sun!



frs2 by Jack Strathdee, on Flickr



and i was right ! :rlmao: so bumper back off



loaded onto the work horse!


frs3 by Jack Strathdee, on Flickr


and a 3am shot out side my mates as we set off sunday


frs4 by Jack Strathdee, on Flickr



so long story shot , me and my mate set off at 3am (had to go into shell aberdeen to get fuel so even when we did set off we had to go 10 miles in the wrong way!)

so 525 miles we set off on our way to Spec R alloy , this is due to me having a area six intake and the pipe had to be made up on the car.
Was about as exciting drive as to be expected in a 90bhp t350 transit van tbh! lovely day all the way down the road was like 15oC (to us scots thats like summer and we were sweating haha)


was an alright drive down tbh , motorways are full of idiots (nearest motorway to me is 70 odd miles away and even then its only 2 lanes of traffic) got down at just before 12 , had a chat with pete and unloaded the car and turned around and came back home

16 hours of driving , 1 stop on the way down , 2 on the way back and im now carless! but imo if you want the best (sarbe's maps and spec R's coolers) you have to travel , and i travelled 525miles so no one (with the exception of a few Inverness boys) has an excuse that they are to far away now :stir: :lmao:

plan is once pete has the intercooler fitting and catch tank he is then going to take it to the boys at sarbe and they are going to build a 3" exhaust and screamer pipe for the waste gate and then fit my injectors , bigger map sensor and a hole load of my little bits and bobs (as there will be a few no doubt!) and get there mapping skills out and see what the car can do :drool:

First outing will be fintry 17&18th of aug! , not what the cars built for but now its done i just want to do something to enjoy it! hope it dont rain!



Right , so the box is away getting the diff installed and rebuilt , so iv had some bits and bobs lying about the room so i thought i better get on with fitting them!


but first of i treated my self !

New alpine suit and addais boots :) , most expensive pair of shoes iv ever bought might i add lol !



should keep me in one bit for longer should the worst happen!


next some photos of the custom down pipe and screamer



its incredibly tight up there , and i need to take the screamer pipe off for some heat wrap treatment!

so iv had these for a few weeks now


Lifeline zero2000 electric fire extinguisher and a CarTek electric GT isolator

both reasons for them being electric is if i do go out in about in the car i was paranoid some little sh!t would see the two "pull" cords and pull them , now when the cars not being used in completion i could happily have them disconnected inside the car so they didnt do anything if pulled , but with my luck they would keep pulling on them expecting something to happen and hall them right out of the car , and these can sometimes be a pain in feeding thought the firewall ect ect so just thought it would nicer , neater and keep my happy if they could only push two little buttons that did nothing lol

so think im going to mount this here




think im going to put the arm switch here for the lifeline extinguisher (excuse the open loom , no point in doing that up untill this is all wired in)


fitted the bottle to the floor



then i fitted the live switch for the cartek issolator and lifeline "get wet" button haha


so i just need to wire up the isolator and extinguisher and thats another two jobs off the list! (it is getting smaller i swear! haha)


on the dyno

I was not able to read all that but judging by the pictures that stopped being street legal a long, long time ago. Or are they not as strict over there? I know here in California that could not be driven on public roads! Do you street drive the car or has it turned into a track day car?

If you lived here or vise versa, we should get together. Your car has come a long way. Really stunning!

I'm very interested about the oil pump setup. I run a GTX3582R and still have room, but I need the safety. I have billet oil pump gears now, but they tend to snap too.

I have RS fans/shroud installed also, and already melted the wires...haha I need to wrap my downpipe I guess, even though it's coated already. If you haven't thought about it yet, get a blanket for your housing. I'm still looking for a SS compatible one though.

Have a gander at my car:
