    Adge's Sport 250 Build & Tinkering Thereafter!

    Hello all, afraid the time has come for me to start my threatened build thread!! After a crack of dawn start (for me anyway) arrived at Kingswinford. Spent a very enjoyable and informative three hours or so with Ian and the rest of the crew. Van expertly loaded by Ian, didn't move an inch on the return journey. Had a good look at the cars in build and took loads of photos, including a lot of the factory 250 which Ian was kind enough to raise on the ramp so that I could have a good poke about and photo all things hidden when it's on th ground. Obligatory shot of bits in the van.
  2. Hello, I'm Nick (not really, but it makes it easier for everyone), some of you might recall a forum post few months back, seeking advice on a Sport 250, so here is the follow up... But before that a brief intro how it all happened.. In 2017 I bought a complete FW special edition kit, as a present for my grandfather for his retirement, as he loves to make stuff and is generally very handy. I was looking at Caterhams, but they refused to sell me a kit outside of UK (not sure why they would care...). So I ended up buying Westfield FW special edition, without too much rese

    Sport 250 Cooling (again)

    I tried to post a topic in tech / powertrain and it wouldn't let me, so apologies as I guess this is not the right area.... I have a customer built, factory supplied and factory sold sport 250. Its a 2017/18 car which had done 50 miles from new when I bought it last month for my bday. I did ask at the factory for it to be taken on a good run before I picked it up as I would then be driving the next day to Barcelona, but was told no man power available. I also asked re the cooling system / max temp I should see, bearing in mind I was heading to 30C ambient daily temperatures, I was told

    Antifreeze / coolant

    OkDoky team, looking for a sanity check here. Have the front of the Sport 250 off ATM, as I'm in the process of trying to improve the air-flow, moving the battery etc, as well as a host of other things, and still have the subject of what engin Antifreeze/coolant to use on the re-build. Spoken to a few people on various web and buliten boards, mainly on the Ford Focus ST car, as it's what my engine would have ended up in, and not really had much feedback, so turned to Google, which kept pointing toward Motocraft Orage being recomended. So after a bit a bit mo

    Turbo Blanket

    Know there have been a few mentions of Turbo Blanket on here, and just seen some on a website, and given heat in the Sport 250 is a bit of a thing with me, I thought I’d asked the colective here about them. Understanding the idea, keeping heat away from adjacent things, but surly you end up keeping the excess heat in the turbo body, and while it’s designed for heat, keeping more in it can’t be good. Any comments very welcome so I can expand my knowledge
  6. Wednesday, 13 September 2017 OK time to start my build thread, been on the forum now for a few months, joined in with the “Yorkshire breakfast club” run by Robin most months where I have had a great reception, and made some new friends and obtained a hell of a lot of great advice. Had a lot of my questions answered by people on here, as well as help in choosing the options to go for on my order, and fantastic reading of the other sport 250 build threads, which I still keep going back and re-reading, so a huge thanks to all here. Ordered my Sport 250 early June, and today hired (

    Horn replacement

    I’m absolutely sure this has been asked many times before but I’m after replacing the crappy WF horn, with something that might actually let others people know I’m in the area as mine is more like a squeak. lots of options on dB and current in terms of Amps, and I don’t really want to have to do anything more than a straight swap so open to suggestions or recommendations? thanks in advance

    Help - split sump from engine

    I'm just starting the swap out of my sump on the sport 250 following AdgeC process, and so far have drained the oil and coolant, removed quite a bit of the car to get to the bolts fixing the bell housing to the back of the Ford EcoBoost and have about 1mm separation between the 2. All the retaining bolts removed from the sump, and the 4 from the front timing cover, but can't get the sump to budge, given its fixed on with liquid sealant. Any suggestions welcome on how to separate the 2? Tried tapping around the sump with a copper-hide, no luck.
  9. I am Sayontan Seth,I have got the Sport 250 in INDIA, we are having some issues we the stock ECU setup as the ambient temperature and air pressure and fuel octane.The idle RPM is dropping fluctuating.The Idle RPM is dropping as low as 200rpm when after applying throttle to mid RPM and leaving it, and most of the time the Engine shuts down while doing like these. Can anyone help me to Re tune my ECU for 2L EcoBoost in my Sport 250?Also where can I get the ECU stock flash file?

    fibreglass polishing

    While doing a quick horn replacement over the weekend a bit kit in my garage fell against the nose cone, and although its only a slight buff to the finish, I know it's there. Can anybody recommend a process to hopefully buff this out, as the only thing i have every used of a car was T-Cut I would have through to be to aggressive?

    Exhaust Wrap recomendations

    Well now I'm post IVA I'm starting to look at the refinements for the car. The IVA examiner also picked up on this, that the Sport 250 exhaust is likely to dry-out the top UJ in the steering, and advised to wrap it to keep the heat away from it. So I'm looking for any advice on choice of exhaust wrap from the forum and any tips on how to apply it as this is yet another new thing for me If given a choice I'd like it to be black, unless this compromises the performance, and only intend to wrap the first pipe to the edge of the body-shell, and my exit hole has about 10mm all the w

    Door fixing

    Hi team, looking for a bit of help on how the fix the WF doors with the straps supplied? I've got a small bag with a pair M5 SS doom head nuts/bolts and some rivets with the pop studs but no real clue on where to fix them to the door or the inside of the passenger compartment?

    Steering wheels

    On my immediate list of thing I'd like to change will be the steering wheel, had a quick look about, but confused and looking for some suggestions and why. https://www.demon-tweeks.co.uk/motorsport/steering-wheels I ideally want a slightly larger wheel as I'm coming from years of cars with power steering, but also want a larger space above the center so allow vision of my AIM dash. I'm also planning this as a "Quick Release" replacement shaft/boss http://go-race.co.uk/shop/4582749947/westfield-steering-column-quick-release-boss/10740708

    Sport 250 Sump Change

    Presume Tech Talk is the place for this? Posted with apologies to non 250 owners for the long diatribe. For fellow 250 owners interested in fitting a shallow sump, below is a guide that may be useful. I make no claims that this is THE way to do it, just the way that worked for me, following advice gratefully received from Steve sdh2903. WESTFIELD SPORT 250 - FORD ECOBOOST 2.0L SHALLOW SUMP FIT Parts. Needed:- A) Sump Pan - Pt No. N418752 from Power Torque Engineering - £249 inc del.

    OK, I give up

    OK I'm sure I've seen a thread that identified these but i cant now find it, but can somebody please tell me/show me what these were for? Pretty sure the folded one goes under the FW rear to plug a hole somewhere?

    IVA Process

    OK just starting to think I need to start the IVA process, and knowing naff-all about this so far I'm looking for guidance and some pointers etc. Currently reading the Government web page, which tells you to navigate to a page that's not listed, so I "Googled" for "Individual Vehicle Approval application forms" and found my way to this form https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/iva-application-form-for-passenger-cars-iva-1c Downloaded this form, amdI on the right track here? Given I've seen many comments about people with "IVA Test" on there cars I'm assuming if you ha
  18. Just passing this along after an eMail conversation with Simon at WF confirming the warranty on my engine. "The warranty on the complete kit is one year from the date of collection, this is the warranty offered by our suppliers." I was asking about the engine clearance of the sump on the 250 as well as the cooling and the response, apart from the std "we don't see a problem" pointed to the fact that they cannot make changes to the engine as it voids the warranty from there suppliers which I kind of understand from a commercial PoV. I personally have decided that the cooling

    Side door

    Just trying to sort out my windscreen/side pillar/side door setup. I've tried the suggested measurement of 965-970 to get the angle, but like this the doors are up in the air, so have reduced to about 920 to get the back of the door to just touch the rear about on the fold line of the door. This means the door top is not parallel to the rest of the car,is this about right? i cant see any way to adjust this as the door length is obviously fixed, to the only adjustment is the angle of the windscreen Any help or suggestions welcome

    Big Head nut/ fixing

    Soon on my to-do list is mounting the front mudguards on my Sport 250, and was thinking of using the Big Head fasteners but ideally wanted the "nut" version. Anybody got any suggestions for a supplier? Thought M5 nuts would be a safer option than the standard M5 bolt's in protecting the tiers and maybe a bit less bending required, but any suggestions welcome?

    Electrical question

    Just running things in my head before i end up fitting my scuttle, hopefully, for the last time and I'm looking at the WF loom connection for the cooling fan, as I'm going to fit the same setup as Steve and AdgeC with a separate fan controller, with a temp sensor mounted at the back of the engine. Rather than run yet another pair of wires to the cooling fan i though I'd look to see if i can use the WF connection, which has a BLACK and GREEN/BLACK, which I have followed back to a small relay on the WF loom, in a small block with 2 fuses and 2 relays. The GREEN/BLACK wire traces

    Exhaust mounting question

    Hi, can I just get a quick check on the mounting of the exhaust can on the side of the car. Now I know my Sport 250 is not the most common model and think i have found all the required bits, but just wanted to ask about the post mounting. I think i have found the boss on the inside of the chassis, which would need drilling through from the inside, is this correct? Supplied exhaust can, with 2 massive jubilee clips? Rubber anti vibration block Exhaust hanging on the driver side Hole i think I need to drill through from the inside? Thanks in

    FW style boot lid lock's

    Just looking at the placement of the FW boot lid lock's, can anybody shed any light on the distance from the edge or center line that these should be fitted, as the FW manual has a drawing, but no dimensions?

    Dashboard Build

    Hi All, I’m still waiting on the manual for the Sport 250 kit I bought last year. With your help, I’ve made progress but not bothered’ torquing it all up until I’m confident. Dashboard build while the weather’s rubbish seemed like a good idea. without the manual, i’m guessing/deciding where the lights/switches go. Does anyone have a picture of how they’ve done it? Also - how do the warning lights secure against the back of the dash? And..finally, I have a digital dashboard (I know, all the gear and...) is there a backing plate that it screws into to hold it in place? T
