when you get older it's better, and nothing exciting happens at 25 with insurance, it justs you get more places to get quotes from.

well that quote of 530 was when i was 24, i turned 25 a month ago... so by renewal it should be better... but with the claim looming over me for the next 3 years... oh well...


P.S - I was totally at fault for the accident i had, i overtook a car then realised i was approahing a corner... braked, skidded into oncomming traffic and bounced off the oncomming merc and sideways thru the wall into a field.

This was my old pride an joy...

Do you mean fit 6x9s into a fiesta door? They won't go in the original position easily, 6" are a struggle. Best really would be a set of components for the front. I probably wouldn't go for that range of sonys either. I had a set of 5" that were old but quite good, but my mate had a set of speakers in one of the newer range and the sound quality was pretty bad

The red escort WAS a nice car. 136hp form the 1.8.
Its a shame the brakes were made from mini cheddars Sad

The Black GTi is my replacement... i bought it 3 days after the accident.. found it on ebay and went to view... paid a deposit and collected it 2 days later.

Anyway, i;ve hi-jacked your thread enough.

The stripe wire is goes to the little pin on speakers.
Keep the same polarity on the speakers and they will all be in phase.

Lol, MK I Fiesta 1300GL, 1340cc, 7500rpm if you dare, headwork, cam, XR2 carb, tubular manifold, stainless exhaust, piperx filter, aftermarket complete replacement ignition, just needs setting up really - 89 BHP last time it went on the rollers.... which isn't bad in a car that weighs 750kg or so (nearly 900 with a full tank and me in it mind...)

Fair play for reaching those kind of figures for a 1300, I think Ill leave You well alone for the time being,

I wonder what can be done to My 1400 block to gain more hp, I bought some bosh preformance plugs 2day, stuck em in, and the car runs a whole lot smoother,

Like dave said, No point doing too mutch with My Lump, Just tidy her apperance up alittle, Just won a set of alloys on ebay, Kinda half regreting it now, They look quite plane, What You recon Lads

With the bosh Plugs, I couldnt realy notice any diff in acceleration, But the Car Is Smoother,

Dont know if this is normal for a 1.4, But I cant go above 40 in second gear, and its cryin out, My 1.1 did the same thing lol, Also, been noticing a delay in acceleration, Hence Why I changed the plugs,(also saw the opitunity to get preformance ones Very Happy ) if it doesent improve, Ill go to town on the leads, I just hope I havent got any vacum leeks

the delay is from the carb, and probably nothing you can do about it. Best is to clean the carb out with redex.
Since you have the 1.1 box still on, the only increase in speed in gear, is from the engine reving slightly hire than the 1.1
Your rev to speed ratio will still be the same. The longer the gearing the higher the speed to any given rev, compared to a shorter box that will increase acceleration due to shorter speed to rev range

you want a fuel cleaner suitable for carbs. Redex can be put in the tank, or at small amounts at a time - straight into the carb. less than 1/2 a tea spoon (take the filter housing off)
