Everything is now stripped and painted

Heads have gone off to be skimmed

Now it's a case of replacing and putting everything back ImageImageImage

Slowly coming together, l bet you’re looking forward to the day when you’re cruising down the country highways in your shiny motor. My friend.
Now is the time to make sure that everything is done correctly and no corners are cut, but you know that for sure.

Coming along nicely, see you said the V6 is 230bhp, is that stock and can you add any goodies to make anymore. I'm only jealous, my Mondeo V6 is only 169 bhp stock, but I got it up to 190bhp, only the Americans could make such a weedy V6, think they save all their power for their V8s.

Cheers mate

They're rated between 180-200 stock depending on year, porting and polish and a decent y pipe exhaust should easily see 230 but will dyno it

It's the torque I'm after! Should see 0-62 in 5-7 seconds depending on other things


In other news got the heads back so gota rebuild them

Got thee pistons in and the oil cooler on and bypass pipework ImageImageImage
