    You can't beat the feeling of a quick front wheel drive turbo car , when it comes on song , torque steering down the road.

    unless you're in a quick rear drive car going sideways down the road as you come out of a bend using the throttle to steer with.

    Had a bit of luck on a salvage auction , managed to buy a complete ford focus st170 and also a auto black top zetec mondeo , so my conversion is going to use the st170 bottom end as forged internals as standard with the valve springs from that head in the black top head so don't use the variable valve time , with a focus cosworth head gasket gives us the correct compression ratio for a turbo. Then maybe use brakes etc and sell on the other parts not wanted .

    Couple of rusty bits on the car not to bad at the moment , after blasting may be a different story .
