People need to realize the difference between building a sleeper car. ....(get a base model car with stock exterior and interior and stick a walloping great engine in it)...and doing an engine swap!

Well... a MK4 Orion with a CVH Turbo and 250+ hp IS a street sleeper after nothing more than an engine swap...

heres my mk1 mondeo zetec turbo which is a bit of a sleeper. recently dynoed at 278bhp @ 4600rpm (boost was dropping off above that due to blowing turbo gasket and turbo oil-seal leak, but i've had new gaskets on now so its probably nearer 290)

its caught quite a few people out, nobody expects a mondeo to be fast. theres very few out there which are quick, but alot of mondeo's out there plastered in horrendous bodykits and stickers which *think* they are fast haha

Blacky, thats more like it mate!

Looks PROPER sleeper now


sleepers seem to be something the vauxhall lads do better than the fords in the main, but you've really done the ford marque proud with that one
