    Zetec Swirl Pot

    My car has a 2.0l swirl pot in the engine bay, fed from the rear via a facet silvertop low pressure pump, I did track days in the hot summer we just had with no issues what so ever on the fuel system.the oil overhead and the brakes melted but no fuel heat issues or surging problems. Why is it in the front ? There was no room in the back and the fuel tank wasn't suitable for modification at the time I converted the car to fuel injection. Use a good lp pump and it will be fine, mount the pot away from the exhaust in the air flow if possible and it works great.
  4. Yet I have a 1 yr warranty with my xc90, the Aircon pump failed took it in to a Volvo independent specialist the warranty paid up in so much as the cost of aftermarket part cost, I paid the the difference and had OEM original fitted they also paid for the regas and labour @ £50 an hour. So they are not all bad

    Which Tdo4 Turbo?

    Cheers for above info, think I've now hit a major stumbling block, to hang the turbo off the manifold it puts the oil feed and drain upside down or can they be switched ?
