    ECU IVA Setup

    Still worth a dyno session tbh.
  3. So insurance is due on this Stoneleigh weekend, getting prices sorted now. Place your bets now as to best and worst prices I get! Oh, and I might do an update video soon...
  4. As I am sure a lot of you already know, I run a small channel on youtube producing car related videos on things like drives out, tutorials etc. I am going to be making a new series of videos covering my winter mods which I thought some of you may be interested in. The first mini video of the series is below, though I promise in advance they will get more interesting I will be attempting to post new videos once a week to keep it updated on everything that is going on.

    There are a few recommended replacements, I seem to recall one from a ford ka and another from a fiat 121

    Layout has changed from previous years, as far as I am aware 73 is correct and as marked on this map, I am sure @keith kelly will be able to confirm/update

    Zetec engine start first time

    You need to swap them in pairs, so swap 1 and 2 now to get the pairs back together. You need them laid out like this 1-4 Plug 2-3 OR 2-3 Plug 1-4

    rollbar replacement

    Some pictures here show how they look mounted http://nw.rhocar.org/tiebars.htm The overall length approx 350mm (lengths are on the diagram) Fixing bracket is made from a piece of box section and is mounted so that the centre hole for the rosejoint is approx 12" back from the rear face of the TCA and should be rigidly mounted with bracing plate on the inside of the chassis. The alternative to following these designs is cutting down the antiroll bar to turn it into two tiebars mounted to the chassis in the same way. The benefit of making the tie bars that way is that the antiroll bar are bent to provide clearance for the wheels at full lock, where as the straight ones can rub at full lock.

    rollbar replacement

    S3a is a variation of the older S7, there are very few differences and none that should really affect this. In fact the tie bars on my s7 came from an exmo. There isnt a kit available off the shelf and all the ones I have seen on kits have been custom made. What extra details do you need?

    Sorry, misread your post as saying 1&2 should be together.

    Zetec engine start first time

    Ok so 465cc injectors? im guessing that map that came with the emerald is not setup correctly for itb and/or those injectors. You need to check that in the ecu settings and will also need to make sure you have the wasted spark leads paired correctly - they could also be paired correctly but the pairs backwards on the coil pack. Is the ecu set to do batch fire or semi sequential fuel? If semi sequential you will need to get pairings correct again.

    Road legal

    yes, they are too short, I ended up adding an extra spacer to get the height right, but too soft. Rear coilovers will be the way to go, but for now I just want to get back on the road!

    On that note, any idea what the original sierra springs are? I find they are rather soft.

    Zetec engine start first time

    Just a minor correction to the above, pairing for wasted spark should be 1&4 and 2&3. We need more details to be able to help though as above, what ecu? where is the map from? is it written for your fuel and ignition setup? You are fortunate that being in the midlands area you are surrounded by active and knowledgeable members. If you havent, do try and make it over to the monthly meet, as getting to know fellow members is the best thing you can do! My car would never have made it one the road without them.

    Those measurements sound like they could be valve stem steals, but you'd have more than 2 of them.
