Work done and shes quick

Posted 06-09-2007 at 00:42 by cinq117

After scrapping one head(the cam seized) i have got her going. she is sooooo much quicker.
did all the work in the previous thread but instead of the 866 or is it 886 anyway you know what i mean i have put in a 4x4 cam from a 2001 punto. Someone in the forum said this cam is probably better used in the 1.1 engine and i don't know if this is true but believe me it has made a big difference. when i put my foot down at 2000 revs the cinq flies . i personally recommend this cam.
also a big plus is the thermostat changing the inner with the fiesta 1.0 is another great mod keeping the cinq cooler quicker and longer, read the threads of how its done.
Things i learned
1. The punto 1.2 head is not the same as the cinq spi 1.1 as the inlet manifold are different. at least i got a 4x4 cam from it
2. When you change a cam make sure the car is on a level surface when you first start it cause i scrapped my head due to oil starvation to the bearing as one side was jacked up and tilted so no oil reached the bearings thus seizing the cam. you live and you learn.
However the grief has being worth it and i have been so please with the result i love to get it on the R.R and see how much she has improved.
So if your thinking of modding you cinq stop dreaming and do it you won't regret it.
next the suspension

    Hi my name is Brady Oberman from Paris, Arkansas I'm wondering if you have ever heard of putting in a 4.3 chevy motor in a fiat spider before? Any help would be great.
