    I went for the 1.6 as it felt more 7 -esque in terms of weight and physical size getting it under the bonnet. After going OTT on mine in terms of spend I reckon using SCS Delta ECU and a baffled sump you could get one going for £2K + engine cost. Main PITA (like the 2.0) is the exhausts proximity to master cylinders, otherwise its reasonably straight forward,
  6. it appears the Ford water temp gauge is less than accurate and the recall is for a new sensor that gives a warning if the water temp gets too high, leading to a possibility of a cracked head and an oil fire. Im hoping its nothing to worry about

    1.6 Ecoboost Conversion

    Looking good. I left my solenoids in place albeit after removing the internals, I think i'll do the same as you after registration. One thing that caught me out was the setting of the TPS voltage in the SCS ECU, it wasnt 100% clear that the throttle should be fully closed, i.e no air bleed at the min TPS voltage. Just make sure you can "feel" the position of the butterfly before completing boost pipes etc. I didnt do this at first and ran roughly until i repeated the procedure with a fully closed throttle.

    Not sure if your ECU has CAN bus output? If it has then its just a matter of connecting the data wires together between dash and ECU then bobs your uncle.

    Cutting exhaust/inlet holes in a bonnet

    I used a mix of Permagrit tools from Easy composites, never chipped anything once...awesome stuff! They do needle file, dremel bits and jigsaw blades. Wouldnt use anything else now...goes through fibreglass and CF like a dog eating hot chips.
