Judging by the notches on pistons, you went for the high compression ones?

So you had the pistons custom made?

What are the big end bearings you are using?

Niceeeey! I have, like, 100 questions! What is the ID of the bores? What pistons are you using? What piston rings? I have been meaning to do that; if the liners are steel, you can use whatever rings you like as you don't have the trouble of matching nikasil..... Looks really nice, a credit to your c...

How will you solve the problem of shifting gears? The gearbox is cable operated, but your cables are going to be facing in the wrong direction?

Possible death of a puma ;'(

If you can't get the compression test done, try pouring some oil (some oil, not a pint!) into the cylinders through the spark openings, then crank the engine for a few turns to get the oil in the rings and then try it again. If the compression is bad and the rings are bone dry (because of long time ...

Puma'd mk6 fiesta

The clocks are needed unless you replace the complete loom. Fiesta uses digital electrical network CANBUS and the clocks are used as gateway for the hispeed and lowspeed CANBUS. So you are basically looking at these modifications: 1. Replacing the engine. The engine mount will fit, but the torque re...

I doubt anyone has done it, as fiesta uses CANBUS and puma does not. So, you would have to basically redo all the wiring in fiesta. Fiesta uses FBW throttle, puma has throttle cable etc....

Some work to make car nicer! Since I had that accident with a deere had to buy a new headlight. Fortunately, it was available at the time and I replaced. So the left one is now 3 years old and looking nice, but the other one is as old as is the car and turned yellowish. Few days ago a stray dog ran ...

Did some more investigation on B6 swap. First made a bracket to determine the position of chassis leg in relation to the existing IB5 gearbox. Rather crude, but enough for some conclusions and ideas... http://i1233.photobucket.com/albums/ff399/stkalcevic/B6%20getriba/IMG_4578.jpg You can notice the ...

I am affraid that if you brush it hard enough, the rust will evaporate to nothing and you will see holes. That needs welding in the fresh material...

This is very scary topic! I try to look at it like this: I don't smoke (hence saving on cigarettes every day) and don't frequent pubs (also saving there) so I can justify the money going into the car as it is not missed by anyone......

Boot Struts?

Yup, the fiesta ones do fit, but are much stronger in pushing force. Since the RHS is used for electrical connection, I replaced only the left one with a fiesta one. It is so strong it opens the boot on its own (with retained original the puma one on RHS) so no need for getting both of them
