400 - first time pass!

Sold it (it was LHD) and replaced it with an 820 Vitesse and an 820 Sterling with money left over. Those 800s are bargains.

I would be interested, there is a 200bhp fiesta turbo around here that I would love to have a go against.
But I have no where to put it :(

170 sounds good, weel done
I 'll need to ask you a LOT of questions in the near future.

For now: I decided to go vvc on the 400 (mkii). What gbox did you use and what about the alarm ecu?

You can use the R65 box, but the PG1 is recommended.

ECU and alarm will need to be matched from a VVC car. Obviously the wiring needs doing as well.

I'll probably stick with the R65 initially and see how much it lasts (it's from the 1.6 engine). In theory using the PG1, assuming that the mounts can be transfearable on the box, what driveshafts have to be used? From what car?

Also how much the wiring diagrams of a vvc car (such as vi etc) differ from the zr160 (as i don't have any for the zr)?

Well first job is to find an engine with all ancilliaries, so till then i hold my curiosity :) (btw if anybody knows of a good engine going let me know).

Thanks

You will need a different flywheel IIRC to use the R65.

Mems3 is used in the 160 and has extra sensors etc over the mems2 Vi.
