Hi everyone just thought i'd put a few pics up of a project me & a couple of my mates are working on. Its a mk2 fiesta(soon to have a mk1 front end fitted) with a noble M12 engine in the back, this is basically a twin turbo 2.5 ST24 engine with uprated internals putting out about 320bhp. Progress has been slow so far due to lack of funds but should get going after christmas! So far we've got the engine in the back, made the engine mounts & fitted the rear suspension & have had the main part of the roll cage fitted. I hope you all like it so far, will update as we go.

Will be mental if you can make it perform properly and not just be a straight line/sideways machine (whichever IT wants to do! )

Keep the updates coming!

Thanks everyone for your positive replies much appreciated
Were gonna try everything we can to make it handle by making all the suspension fully adjustable & the engine has been fitted as far forward as possible, as we don't want it just to be fast in a straight line! But untill is done we wont know??

That's bonkers

I've been thinking I'd like to do something along these lines, but with a MK3 shell and a supercharged ST24 engine

At the moment its got the standard shocks with cut down and modified springs so its quite soft but ive just brought a set of front coilovers that im going to test out, im also going to modify the front shock towers to adjust camber. It will take quite a bit of setting up.
