    A little project I've been working on *non VAG*

    1989 Ford Fiesta XR2 with a paltry 40k on the clocks.

    13" Pepperpots removed and my old Fiesta RS Turbo 14" 3 spokes bolted on


    1600cc CVH motor, which was pretty healthy


    Then came the project part, out came the old motor


    Front panel freshened up (was pretty clean though)


    Bike carbs


    2 litre 16v Zetec from a friends track Fiesta XR2i with Piper cams


    The 15" Mondeo 5 spokes were a tight fit over the 4x4 Cosworth brakes




    Still a work in progress but it goes like stink! Already have a Focus ST170 engine to transplant in on proper throttle bodies.

    Comments welcome :0)

    Love it!!

    Had an xr2 when i was a lad, great car, went like stink, and with a suspension kit on it it cornered like it was on rail's no one could keep with me in the bend's.

    Sold it for a nova gte, which was faster, but never really did it in the handling dept.

    Hope you keep this updated

    By the way, st170 engine will be fun, had one a while back, and loved it to bit's
