Love Bonuses, looks like a good 'un!
If you're gonna be using it for track i wouldn't really worry about what it looks like, sort out the suspension and brakes (is that a cossy set up up front?), then go on the hunt for power.
On second thoughts it's a 1.1 so you might want to go backwards from what i said above, power first..

have you changed the fly wheel on the zetec cause it not fit to your gearbox as the fly wheel is to thick,also you need to change the sump,oil pick up pipe & water pump.
