Bostig Conversion: WBX Engine Removal
This video follows me over the course of a day as I remove the old VW
engine from my Vanagon in preparation for the Zetec engine as part of the
Bostig engine conversion.
Classic Ford's 250 bhp 2-litre Zetec on the dyno
Here's Classic Ford Art Editor Rob's 2-litre Zetec being run up on Ric Wood
Racing's Dyno. The
engine runs a Silver Top bottom end and Black Top head, custom-grind Piper
cams, and Jenvey 45 mm throttle bodies. Once installed in the car, the
engine went on to make 251 bhp at 8775 rpm and 211 lb.ft of torque at 5895
rpm. Read the full feature on the build of this engine in the July 2013
issue of the magazine.
Bostig engine conversion install, part 1
Under the direction and help of Adam Garcia and Bostig's documentation, we
finally removed my old waterboxer engine and transmission. Here is some
video of the van engine bay, the old + new engines, and the transmission.
I know. I have a lot to do still. But, I'm learning.
Zetec Engine Rough Idle - Issue solved
I was having an idle issue with my engine. I first thought it was the MAF
that was going bad, but after a close inspection, i found i had an air leak
under my throttle body. A plugged air tube was cracked. Or should I say, an
inlet/nipple under my throttle body had a plastic cap (from factory) that
was falling apart and was allowing un-metered air to pass into the intake.

Engine conversion time lapse, fiesta to puma. Part 1
Time lapse of a engine conversion we nearly completed in around 7 hours, a
late start and lack of engine crane denied us the running of the engine
today. A standard 1.6 zetec s to a fully rebuilt 1.7 puma engine with LSD
box and full Miltek system. Please view part 2 on my channel also. This is
the first time lapse video iv made so be kind! :)
