    Haven't done a thing with the ka since octane in may so this was the evening to get the isdc track day prep started. In fairness the car needs nothing more of a check over and service. Tyres are perfect for the day.

    Bit of an upgrade has started on the ka.
    After 5-6 years of track work I have decided to retire the 1.7vct puma engine in my ka. It has ran faultlessly since I fitted it with the only failures being a fan belt and a clutch kit.
    I have said before that I would be fitting a fiesta St 2.0 engine as I have always found that the chassis was definitely able for way more power than the puma could give, so on Saturday last I dropped the puma lump out and started fabrication on the new 2.0.
    The initial spec is as follows!!
    2.0 duratec
    Cosworth inlet manifold
    Four branch exhaust manifold
    Fiesta St gearbox with custom ratios
    Omex 500 ecu
    Should be good for 175-185bhp.
    I'll keep ye updated with the progress DSC_1705.jpegAttachment 112198DSC_1713.jpegDSC_1712.jpegDSC_1714.jpegDSC_1715.jpegDSC_1716.jpegDSC_1717.jpegDSC_1718.jpegDSC_1719.jpeg

    Another bit done this evening, originally when I built the ka running on the puma engine I decided to use a hybrid of the two cars looms to keep it simple and cheap. So this evening I removed all original wiring from the ka and now I'm left with a blank canvas to start the process of getting the loom made up for the 2.0 running with the omex ecu DSC_1732.jpegDSC_1733.jpegDSC_1734.jpegDSC_1737.jpegDSC_1736.jpegDSC_1738.jpegDSC_1739.jpeg

    Great work dec Should make a big difference Love the way you say decided to rip out the old loom and start fresh sounds like a pain and not something I’d touch But sure I guess it’s a lot easier when you know what you’re doing
    great work look forward to the progress

    A few more developments on the dura-ka project

    Removed the engine as I now have the mounts finished up and I wanted to get started on the engine wiring and build a gearbox.

    First up was to thoroughly clean the engine with degreaser and then strip any unwanted wires from the engine loom. As I'm running it on an omex I only need minimal engine sensors so a lot was redundant.

    Fitted the exhaust manifold and modified the mazda heat shield to fit along with a freshen up with heat resistant black paint.

    Also want to remove some metal from the inside of the right side subframe support as it's very close to the fan belt pulley. While the engine is out I'll freshen up the engine bay.
