Its from a 100ELX Marea, it was on my old car... Stuck for a TD100 bumper, I cant keep driving round with one foglight!!!

Speaking of this cars ability to move...


F*ck me the sound from the exhaust is unreal, what would it sound like with that 4 inch backbox?!! I must get it to the tunnel again soon!!!

Re: Van with a difference!!!.

Cheers for the comments!

A short update!

I fiddled with the exhaust a bit more. Then I brought it to the tunnel...

It now also backfires, whoop!

Back to college work for the next 2 weeks, don't expect anything untill then but after that I'm free for 3 months...

Re: Van with a difference!!!.

Re: Van with a difference!!!.

I drove a 1.2 petrol car the other day, not driven a car so slow for ages was proper crazy, (no offence intended) took me back to my standard cinq days. Gotta say though i miss having the ability to drive everywhere flat-out, you just can't do that with more powerful engines. And I'm SSSOOOooooo jealous you have that tunnel near you, i want one

Re: Van with a difference!!!.

ah it wasn't a standard 1.2 i drove either, a fiesta with all the usual exhaust, air filter, inlet manifold, suspension etc upgrades done. Great little thing, responsive and quite quick - like i said, i mock not. I'm just usually driving something with either big modern turbo diesel or a Merc SL or CLK, all of which have alot of torque which is really the difference. My van (2.2TD) isn't really much quicker in a straight line than the fez but the extra torque makes it feel like its pulling harder and thus feels a bit faster if that makes sense.

True, but here theyre not so common. I could only find one in a Fiat Idea, mine for 500. When I save up ill snap it up

It frightens people I overtake I took on a golf tdi, a 110bhp example and I left it eating my dust, take that tdi brigade remapping is off the cards for a while, I'm looking into getting my own software to reading/writing the flash. Ultimately on the cards is an ms2

Very true, I drove a corsa 1.2 home a few months ago to cut up, it holds th record of being the most gutless piece of rubbish ive ever driven even my old Sei was miles quicker, 0.9 litre too!!! The tunnel is approx 10 miles away must take it to the port tunnel and record it...

Ironic you should mention that, when we got my mums Bravo, it had a problem with the ecu plugs so it had approx 40bhp at times and uncontrollable revving (the accelerator jammed open on the motorway on me ) we got to the bottom of it and just a week later, a combine ran me off the road into a watercut my dads Bravo was awful slow when he got it and about 6 months into ownership, the engine blew up surprise surprise we installed a "new" engine and ever since its a totally different car it just depends on how well theyre minded... My car on the other hand will eat anything below a 1.6 that isnt turboed and out handles almost everything else, its a "little" bit quicker than a standard 1.2

No updates I'm afraid, college has me buried....

....Since when did that stop progress with this car though? This to be fitted tomorow night at long last, the Abarth bumper has me driven mad at this stage!!!







Stay tuned!
Thanks clock34 thanked for this post
