Looks meaty
the pics make it look a little better than it is, the edge of the fender is still in the tread of the tire. I have the coilovers at max height for the sake of getting the car on the lift at the shop, so I am hoping once I lower it some camber will come into play. The subframe is raised 12mm so it won't be that much.

I cant run fender liners up front because the tire is already so close to everything. I can hit full lock just barley.

maybe ill get the car running this year =/

f**k photobucket. Company just got real greedy.

Bought the chase bays engine bay brake line kit so I don't have to fab in bay brake lines and vanos line along with a rebuilt vanos. Going to switch vanos and remove the cams to make sure all the headstuds are tight since it got heat cycled, and also doublecheck timing. Have a powdercoated m50 valve cover going on too in wrinkle black.

Also bought billet throttle cable things, magnetic oil drain plug, and antenna delete plug from garagtastic.

And I just drove up to NJ and bought a autopower race roll bar.

Going to switch turbos to the s362sx-e from borg warner. Thing is CRAZY cheap and ive only been hearing good things about it and it should give me room to grow. Going to run a small exhaust housing and then go to a bigger one when I need it.

Been spending too much time on my Fiesta. In the last 2 months went from coilovers to bags, and back to coilovers and now im switching coilovers.

more parts, no progress!

Bought a fuel rail from 22rpd (go check them out www.22rpd.com), hybrid racing FPR, and all the fittings and lines to go to -6 from the firewall. Once I go to my "stage 2" of the build and run straight e85, ill run a surge tank and -8 lines but I really just want to get the car started and running.

A few weeks ago I went to install the new fuel pump.... went terribly. The one I ordered doesnt fit in the hanger well and I tried to desolder the wires and resolder the new wires on and just melted a bunch of plastic. Plus one of the studs for the level sender was broken. I think at this point im just going to get a new hanger assembly and put the 255lph kit I had originally back on as its enough to run the future surge tank anyways. One step forward, 2 steps back.

s362sxe is here....

and its too big. Its hitting the strut tower area... and the hood might not close.

Im going to see if I can put a flange spacer and raise it up like 1/4" because its sooo close.

Shes getting ceramic coated today and the 4" marmon flange should get here today as well. Might also try raising the passenger side of the motor a tad. Worst case scenario I may cut the flange off the manifold and bring it down some or put it at a better angle.
