Just got the word that car will not be ready for today nite, so i have to wait until monday afternoon, on the evening i will try to put the bumper and side skirts onto the car.

hope weather will be sunny but a bit colder (now we have over 35 degrees in hungary continouosly during the last two weeks), then the girls can come to pose around the car:))

once i have time i will put together a proposal to myself for the engine and engine management.. pls let me have your proposals/recommendations too.

Since its going to be awd you should go with the 2.3L,for a little more power and torque.
Then add the turbo and that do it up real good.

yes, good idea, but to fix a 2,3 motor and legalize i have to pay additional 3500 USD tax....

2,0 will do fine;-)

awd is still very far away, once i have turbo and interior done, we can work on it.

I still think the 2.3 would be a great choice. It's got power to start with and with a turbo it will make the AWD a little less detrimental to your power than it would feel like with a 2.0 motor. Though the 2.0 would be a lot cheaper to modify.

2.0 will be much cheaper, lot of good stuff available also in europe.

i guess i will go for a t28r turbo and running at between 15-20 psi. with compression ratio 9:1.

tomorrow morning i will pick up the car from the paint shop. they ask only 400 USD for 2 fenders+2 skirts+rear bumper;-)

also checking the possibility for the omex engine management.

i will go for crower Ford Sportsman Connecting Rods but what pistons shall i use?
