  1. I have a complete XR3i engine and gear that I have had in dry storage for around 10 years. It had about 43.000 miles on it when I removed from my 1989 cabriolet, it is an M.F.I I have lost the dry storage so it needs to be moved A.S.A.P. I only want a nominal amount for it, I would hate for it to be scrapped. It is strapped to a pallet and I can fork lift it into a van or onto a trailer. The engine is located in a unit just off the M4 at Membury. Time is of an essence. Thanks.

    My all blue destined for ebay

    The car has been sold, after 15yrs I am going to miss her but she is going to a very good home. To someone who will keep her as standard, She won't be turbocharged with bling wheels and a big bore exhaust and that makes me very happy.

    My all blue destined for ebay

    No. I'm retired now and I need the garage space for my motorcycles and other bits and pieces. Except for the car I kept a lot in the factory where I worked. The car is totally standard except for a 4 into 1 manifold, I have the original manifold. I also fitted EBC drilled and slotted front discs and decent pads. All Blue has seen my car and can vouch for it's condition. She has done 62,500 miles and needs for nothing.

    Mfi Exhaust System

    E 187cabi, I can't message you but I need to talk to you regarding the 2 into 1 front pipe you have.

    Mfi Exhaust System

    Thanks for replying. I'm a welder fabricator so joining it isn't an issue, I have the joining piece made already. The good thing is that I now know that when it goes up on the ramp I won't be wasting time trying to fit it. Thanks again

    Mfi Exhaust System

    I have been given a MFI exhaust system for my cabriolet, trouble is mine is an EFI. I can see that the front pipe is different but is any of it interchangeable. Thanks.

    This is the part I need. Photo courtesy of All Blue.

    Cassette Holder

    Does anyone have the cassette holder for a mk 4 escort. The one I need fits below the graphic equaliser, it is quite slim and has a central divider. Thanks.

    Exhaust Differences

    Escort Cabriolet "all Blue"

    Sorry mine is not for sale and I know 8000.00 is a lot of money but a low mileage minter is getting very rare.

    I will try and source one. I'm toying with going to the simply ford show in a couple of weeks, I presume there will be an autojumble. Is there any chance of getting the serial number off of your graphic equaliser so I make sure I get the correct one.

    Fd 2007 Set-Up Pics Please

    Thanks for the pic all blue. I can see now that my amp housing is the same as your graphic. I just need the graphic equaliser and cassette dividers. I took a bit of a punt paying £60.00 inc postage but I'm well chuffed. Older and wiser, that's a good call, I will see what my local Ford dealer can do for me, I've just acquired my new Focus from them so they may look out a bit of info for me.

    Thanks for the info.. I will keep an eye out for the graphic but in the meantime I can at least fit the head unit into the car with or without the amp. I won't use the radio cassette which is in lovely condition . The cigarette lighter that is still in the consul has never been used so the head unit isn't sticky with tar. It is nice to have the right gear fitted. The car is totally original now Thanks again.
