    looks good mate so glad you stuck with the ITBs. as for the disc and calipers I can't comment on the mondao ones. but I do have a set of mondao steel wheels but I'm also away for 5 days. but I did a lot of searching for rear discs and calipers for escort/cortina and came up with 2000 for focus discs nd calipers.. got discs .calipers handbrake and handbteak cables from.pick apart.. I also managed to fit a escort steel wheel on with no spacers ...

    starved of air from the factory. put some headers on it (if it doesn't all ready) that will help it breath. and weld the diff

    thought i would have a play with falcon TFI dizzy i had that came with all the injection bits i bought. only wanted was the hall effect as a trigger for the ecu and also for the oil pump. so pulled it a part cleaned it up and cut the top off and capped it...rebuilt with a new plug.......good to go

    just a quick update motor is almost done ..just need to sort the throttle linkage (pretty much sussed) injectors (might get the factory ones cleaned or go later model) spark (going coil on plug from a later model) and last but not least headers ........going to make from scratch . apart from that Hydroprint Hq here in nz did the rocker cover and trumpets for me and i love it.

    They have had the same problem with them when turboing a bmw .. ( something to do with the air from the turbo still beibg present when shutting of the gas ). Should be fine for a NA motor. .....time will tell we are both using them on NA motors that's are totally different and not bmw haha

    nice work mate. I didn't get the IACV with mine but ended up with the exact same as yours and from pick a part. ( can get new ones on aliexpress for 20 bucks lol). you lucked out with the v10 mate. been looking at using a set on a pinto I'm building for my mk5 and they used the ITBs on all performance bmw motors. so there is a v8 set ... and the y have all the injector and idle air system all neatly tucked away on each bank..(and some dismantlers will sell you 1 bank ).

    Great idea mate.. I was wanting to replace 2 sections on my chassis rails...citing them off and straightening them didn't cross my mind.
