    i have not worked on the fastback for quite awhile now as i have been concentrating on the cortina. its the very fine dust that settles on the car and when you wipe it of it scratches the paint, dont get me wrong its not bad but its still bloody annoying and even with a car cover it still gets dusty.
    since the cortina was built its done 2.8 miles and all of them were on the carb, it has done zero miles on the fitech and for some thing that is supposed to be the bee,s knee,s its bloody crap.
    to be honest neil ive put a lot of time and money into this car and after two years of messing its no closer to being done so im hoping for a change in luck and i can make some progress .

    For covering the car,I've found the plastic sheet used for masking up cars for painting is excellent.it comes on a roll and is static so the dust just sticks to that.

    I have a fitec.it certainly isn't plug and play out of the box.my car starts and ticks over nice,but if you floor it it over fuels and you stink of petrol. I may buy the holley set up in and see if that is better

    as you say blackpopracing,
    i have contacted were i got it from and steve who i have been dealing with is going to contact fitech themselves and see what can be done, its like i said to him the car has done zero miles since i fitted it.
    nobody,
    the cortina had over fueled that bad that when i took the fitech of the next day the gaskets were still soaked with fuel. what makes it worse is the fact that 30 mins before it started and ran spot on.

    i think one of the biggest problems with the fitech is from day to day it never runs the same.

    bloody ell... now that will be smart... I so wish I could fabricate stuff and weld properly ... but I guess thats why I have some mates
    So.. Is it gonna be a V8 Jagtina

    I'll be impressed seeing a V8 in there with big wheels, cos I think that'll be a tight squeeeeeese ...then a turbo too... Unless yer going two seater and pulling the motor back so it's essentially mid engined .....I'm rootin for ya

    Your issue is with the dealer - not Fitech.

    It's not fit for purpose so a full refund is due. Sale of goods act 1979. Seller can then take it up with Fitech afterwards.

    Pack it up and take it back for a refund.

    agreed, your 'beef' is with the retailer you got it from not the manufacturer. you don't take your duff mobile phone back to nokia, samsung or whoever, you take it back to the shop you bought it from. same thing here.
    neil.
