Well where do i start! :D

TTF Si is now mine! Yay! Toby's (Minstral) thread of the car here: ttf-si-small-update-1-1-10-for-sale-vt169992/

Well, on friday I took a 4 hour trip on the train to Herne Bay, which is where Toby lives to pick up his Si. 3 hours to get home, it was a long ass day to be fair, but soooooo worth it!

Anyway, got to Toby's house, saw him outside and started to have a chat, then he said he would take me for a drive, he got the keys gave them to me and soon as i started it up, i was thinking 'this is lush'. So quiet compared to my little 1.3 HCS engine, its nearly silent lol. I did actually forget it was on when i went out to show my mate when i got home :lol: Moving on, we took it out for a little run, and i could already feel it had alot more power than my old car! And Recaro seats = win! They are lush :).. Got back to Toby's house, did all the paper work ect, showed me some spare bits he has for the car that i could have, showed me the service history - alot of it. And he very nicely offered me to stay for dinner too, which i would have taken him up on that offer, but i just had some chicken and chips from a local KFC wanna-be place lol.

All in all, the car is just lovely, and Toby is such a great guy too! It hasnt actually properly sunk in yet that its my car lol, its so much better in many ways that it seems like its a dream! :lol:

So, first thing on the list was to fit/replace the spring cups, made a bit of a knocking noise when going down bumpy roads ect. Got started on that today, was going to fit the lowering springs from my old car but one side of the suspension decided the top nut wasnt going to undo and just rounded off a treat, and then so did bit where you put the hex key in. So, went to do the other side, no problem at all! lol. Took that side off, used a spring cup from there, then used one of the others Toby gave to me and got started on the Si.. one side is all done and dusted, just need to do the other side - my alen key socket just shattered when i was trying to put force against the spanner to get the top mount nut undone :( Need an electric impact gun really :lol:

That was pretty much it for today, was going to give it a wash, but didnt get round to it. I'll have to do it tomorrow :)

Obviously its had a fair bit done to it so far as you can see in his thread. Its a genuine car too, not a bodge, just ticked over 73k on the way home, which isnt too bad :)

Not many pics just yet to be honest, the only ones i have taken have been off my phone. I'll post some better pics up when its had a clean :)

First pic i took of it, when i was filling up at the petrol station - centre caps are in the car, will be fitting them tomorrow most probably :)

Image

Went to ford to get a couple of bits..

Image

Fitted wind deflectors from my old car.

Image

Both the cars next to each other, taking the suspension off my old one.

Image

Both cars being worked on.

Image

Old engine compared to new, i was saying to Toby about how the Zetec engine fills the space, and you could pitch a tent up in the HCS engine bay lol.

Image
Image

Orange calipers, more orange than the jack!

Image

Anyway, thats it so far, will post more pics later. Overall, very happy with the car. Toby, thank you so much! And yes, she will be at the shows this year you will see her again! lol :D

Looks soooo much better now it's got some centre caps on! I never did like those wheels when Toby had it as I'd never seen it with the centre caps on, but it makes such a difference. Think you should have bought Toby's old wheels though and put it back on them :bonkers:

Re: TTF Si - Small update, Magnex cat back system :)

Postby - Danny Boy - on Sun Jan 31, 2010 1:32 am

Got myself a 4 inch Magnex cat-back system today off Scott (sjoyce666). Got it fitted at my old work for free. Overall, im so happy with it!! Its really quiet when driving down the road until you put your foot down, then it opens up and sounds lovely! Sounds nice on idle from outside the car too - silent on the inside.

Pics, and a vid :)

Evening all, not much of an update, as i didnt get what i wanted done this week due to bad weather, and being with the mrs most of the week lol. So hopefully, if all goes well next week, i will have a nice update coming :)

Anyway, onwards with this update. Nothing much, but thought I'd share anyway.

I took delivery of this nice little bit of kit the other day, brand new, £38 posted, ebay bargain :)

Image


While i was there i gave the MAF sensor a clean too as it was very dirty. End result = smiles :) It pulls alot better now, sounds lovely on full throttle too, and has that added responsiveness too. So all in all, rather happy with it :)

Just need to give the car and engine bay another good clean up as they are both a little dirty lol.


Image


Oh and a little taster of whats to come soon (pic of it coming off my old car ;)).....

no thats the original jack Dave.the whole engine was mint, get rid of the top layer of dirt and it comes up well danny.

i tyred the k&n but found it made a little difference but more than anything the temp gauge went up. so i had the k&n panel filter and was just as good

I'll give it a good clean later on next week if i get some time. I havent had any problems so far with it or the temp at all and its been on there for about a week now.

Busy week next week i think, might be starting new job, so if that happens, will have no time to do anything until the weekend lol.
