Update Time on the barge...
So today I went on a marathon trek up to the Lake District. Leaving at 5AM meant a clear run up to Manchester with little traffic. It was actually a fantastic run up with me being able to average some decent speeds.
Anyway - the reason for the trip......
Car has gone to have its open heart surgery. Lots of extras going on too;
New OEM bearings/casings etc.
Forge Bypass Valve
Twin Oil catch cans
Bilstein B12 sports suspension
Uprated rear diff mounts
Uprated transfer box bearing caps
Balance shaft removal and sump baffaling
+some bits I've probably forgotten!
Net result should be a pretty sorted car with roughly 400bhp/400ftlb without meth. Running meth as an additional fuel source should mean it will see 500ish, however I'm not keen on this option due to the potential for catastrophic damage should it fail! Instead I will be using it to mainly reduce BAT's and help clean the intake which is notorious for coking up due to direct injection.
Can't wait to get it back now! Bombing around in a Focus ST of 2.5 5pot vintage.
