Do yourself a favour, Buy a Cozzie.......

To put a cosworth engine in a fiesta the whole bodyshell has to be cut in half, reinforced and strengthened and a prop tunnel welded in. The whole suspension and drivetrain has to be custom built to suit and then you can start putting the Cosworth engine in. Also you would have to seriously up-grade your brakes......

Good idea, just seriously expensive and would take approx 3 months solid work from a skilled engineer/technician.......

how about putting an RS Turbo engine into your fiesta instead? same size as the one youve already got.....just faster...and with a turbo. you'd still need to upgrade the brakes and probably the suspension, but it'd cost less than it would to put a cossie engine in there. There are a few RS Turbo Ka's around and they push out about 180bhp, so i cant see any reason why you couldnt do the same to your fiesta <img border="0" alt="[does this help]" title="" src="graemlins/cwemotions041.gif" />

I've heard the fiesta RS turbo is a handfull anyway,- loads of torque steer etc etc. So cosworth power would be WAAAAY too much wink

yeah, thats a good idea. have a look here: http://www.djm-motorsport.co.uk/4wd.htm theyve done loadsa 4wd conversions so they should have a fair bit of experience. the only drawback i can imagine is the cost of getting it done

Sierra cosworths are like 6k,- and Impreza Classics even cheaper, I don't think you'd get a 4x4 conversion and an engine transplant within that cost bracket.

how about this, i know pumaspeed and pumabuild put the 1.7 puma engine into the MK5 fiesta, surely they could put one in yours too! www.pumaspeed.co.uk or www.pumabuild.co.uk
it'd still make for a fast car and theres no need for a 4wd conversion <img border="0" alt="[smokin]" title="" src="graemlins/cwemotions036.gif" />

Yeah that would make more sense, as the puma is basically a fiesta.

Not all engines take well to NOS,- no idea about the fiesta engine though.

RE: the puma engine, not sure what power the 1.8 fiesta outputs compared to the 1.7 puma,- more CC dosn't always mean more power wink
