    Xr3i to fiesta turbo

    This is no longer a cheap upgrade, second parts have gone through the roof. Second hand fiesta engines start at approx four hundred pounds,most will need a rebuild, pistons alone cost £500 -£1,000.00 . A recent rebuilt engine sold for £1,800.00 , a turbo will cost £500.00 engine management is expensive to. Sorry to sound defeatist but this now the norm. A cheaper upgrade may be fit a two litre Zetec from a mondeo am sure you can buy a new crated engine for £1,000.00 ish and will give you 150 bhp if mated to good exhaust and induction kit and no need to run a turbo.

    Rear Bumper trim

    No,don’t see them to often, may have to buy a cheap second bumper and remove the trim, it’s not easy to get them out and put them in spot on either. Good luck

    Rear Bumper trim

    Thats not a mk4 in the picture its a mk5a or a mk6 , mk4 is from 1986-1990 trims are totally differant. If its a mk4 86-90 rear black trim you want a guy on ebay sells them.

    Tennis Fuel Problem

    The inlet manifold bolted on the back of the engine shows Efi stamped in big letters on the front, and also mfi will have a distributor cap on the right hand side of the engine, efi has a coil pack instead. Have you got a Haynes mk4 manual ,it’s like a bible for cars and shows you lots of close ups of parts, well worth buying one. We alll had to start somewhere as you are doing now.

    Tennis Fuel Problem

    Am surprised, all tennis cars I have seen are mfi, they seem to be registered between July and December 1989
