    Valentinik's Duratec Build

    Yesterday i went over to westfield and placed an order for a kit. I've decided to go for an FW body, a couple of the other things i ordered was wide track front suspension, chassis provision for a full cage, quick rack and westfield complete alumium upright,hubs and calipers. Im going to be using a 2L duratec from an ST150 fiesta with an Mk3 mx5 gearbox, westfield don't offer a chassis for this engine/gearbox setup so I'm going to have to fabricate the gearbox mount myself. Although they use the mx5 gearbox and diff in a chassis, a few of the guys there reassure me the chassis is nowhere near the same as the one for mounting a duratec so its up to me to make it work. The kit will be ready for collection around the beginning of february but I'm told il get a definite date this week. So until then, il be working on the engine and gearbox. A few pictures of what i've done so far: Mx5 Box mounted to engine : Engine started to be stripped for cleaning, painting and a little bit of modification. The oil filter will be moved by using a filter relocation kit, and the st150 sump will be replaced with the mx5 item. The cam cover will be removed and power coated, and the point which the fiesta engine mount will be removed on the miller to make it look as tidy as possible. GSXR1000 itbs stripped and parts not needed removed: How they stand now, i just need to fill the holes left from the secondary butterflies and injector ports, as i won't be using these. I just need to make up some spacers from some 12mm aluminium bar on the lathe, to space them to suit the duratecs port spacing. If anyone can see any mistakes/oversights i ever make, please feel free to comment. I am open to criticism, all opinions are welcome. Mike
