2L Turbocharged Zetec on the Dyno
This is a 2 litre turbo Zetec I built
many years ago. The rough starting was due to it a) being a brand new
calibration and b) the starter motor was causing some electrical noise
resulting in the ECU re-setting itself randomly on crank. It made just over
300bhp on the Dyno
before a small crack was discovered around one of the spark plugs in the
head. This didn't affect the running of the engine at all but the mapping
wasn't able to be 100% completed. Even though, this engine produced over
300 ft-lb of torque from 2700-6000rpm. The engine was stripped down and
checked, all OK and a brand new head installed. No longer required for the
project, this engine was sold on.
my megasquirt convertion runs!
This is the second time my MS&S Extra equiped VW 9A engine runs. It is
using a Ford coil pack, which is directly driven from the MS.
After correcting some wrong wiring and loose ground connections, I was
able to start the engine in just 2 attempts.
This is also an engine convertion project, I will use this engine in my
1986 VW transporter syncro.
You may see the adapter plate which I made between the engine and the bus
bellhousing. The starter is a bus item too.
Zetec Engine First Firing
See our latest progress at:
Rebuilt 2.0L Ford Zetec engine removed from a 1999 Ford Cougar. We replaced
all bearings, oil seals, gaskets etc. and here we're firing it up for the
first time using the original wiring loom and ancillary parts. This was our
first complete overhaul so we were very pleased that it fired up without a
glitch following some minor problems with the immobiliser and fuel pump.
