  1. I’ve sent you a PM Paul. I have an MBE 956E for sale if that would work for you?
  2. Thanks Dave. Not wrong of you at all ‘cos I agree that it’s probably a unique car in terms of spec, build quality, setup and cleanliness. Indeed the end of an era, but the car is going to a passionate owner who will continue its story.
  3. Car now sold. Many thanks to the forum for this facility.
  4. I can cover some of your criteria with my car which is for sale at the moment. It’s high spec, adequately powered and road biased, however it has an 1800 zetec. It’s the 1999 Speedsport 1800 in blue...
  5. A scenic background would ruin this pic!
  6. PM sent. My car seems to fit the bill if you're still prepared to go with SEiW
  7. Sent you a PM as I've just advertised my car and it ticks the boxes you're looking for

  9. Thanks very much indeed @Trevturtle. Pm sent
  10. I’ve been having a little trouble with an intermittent fault on my 956E ECU, which was one of the earlier ones with an 8mhz clock chip and early firmware version (supplied new from Westfield). I have replaced it with a later type which has a later version of the firmware (956BA463) and a 16mhz clock chip. The ECU is mated to a Ford Zetec Silvertop engine with mildly ported head, Kent FZ1802 cams and 45mm Jenny throttle bodies. As a result of the difference in ECU specs, I think my original map is corrupted or has parts missing because the car starts and idles beautifully as it always did, but it won’t rev cleanly. Does anyone have a generic base map that would work with the later firmware and clock speed? i just need to be able to get the car to the company I’ll be using for a full rolling road session... any assistance would be greatly appreciated. thanks Matt
  11. Thanks Tony, have dropped Ian a line but wondered if there was knowledge on here as well.
  12. I have an 1800 Speedsport with Zetec E engine, Jenvy throttle bodies and an MBE 956E ECU. I have had to replace my ECU and was lucky enough recently to source a pre used unit. I have cleared the existing map from it and installed my map from my original ECU. The map that was originally on it was for a Vauxhall XE engine. The coolant temperature sensor is reading -22 degrees when the sensor is connected and it overfuels when running, and 90 degrees when disconnected, then the engine underfuels when running. I’ve discovered that there is a resistor on the ECU which needs changing from 1000 ohms to 10,000 ohms in order to recalibrate the temperature sensor to suit the Zetec engine, but I don’t know which one it is at this stage. Does anyone know which component number it is that I need to replace inside the ECU? Many thanks!
  13. I’ve sourced myself an ECU. Thanks very much for your help everyone
  14. Thanks Michael. Have sent you a PM.
