Hiya, been a bit quiet while figuring out what’s best to do but the ball is now rolling!!
After finding out the head had cracked on Kate, I’ve removed the engine salvaged what what left over.
I now have a st170 engine that is currently having the bottom end completely re built so I no it’s all good. Along with ARP rod bolts and a decompression plate. She also has a sidewinder t3 turbo manifold to relocate the turbo unit above the gearbox. Got my self a Mk1 focus RS turbo this weekend.
The next thing on the list is the ARP head bolts then the engine is going back together. For the inlet I’m keeping the GSXR throttle bodies and getting Plenuim chamber for Dan st engineering. I wanted to keep the throttle bodies As I like the look of them. The only down side is the blacktop head and the st head is slightly different so he is supplying a new manifold to accept them bodies.
Once I get the engine back from the shop i will post up some more pics and info, I’ve never done this build dairy before so bare with me lol
my aim is to get Kate back up and running for March April time with 320bhp and a slightly different look... thanks Sean
