93 Montego Blue FD3 Excellent Compression
« on: March 04, 2019, 02:56:15 PM »

It is with a tinge of sadness I have got to do this, but needs must for now and I really should sell. I am in no rush to do so and the car is still being used as a daily.

Loads of people have asked so - the car is located in Falkirk, Scotland. About half an hour from Edinburgh Airport

93 Montego Blue
Running at last check 412bhp
Last Compression Test - 25/02/2019
Front 8.10 8.22 8.10 Rear 7.68 7.68 7.57 - normalised to 250rpm. (Front - 6.7, 6.8, 6.7 @193 rpm    Rear 6.8, 6.8, 6.7 @ 213 rpm)
This was done on a fully warmed up engine. Videos below (excuse the nearly dropping the phone on one)



Car was brought into the country a number of years ago by Jit, then had everything pf value stripped due to the engine being dead. The car then sat at Super 7 in Brighton for a number of years going nowhere until I ventured in. Jason @ Super7 popped a rebuilt engine in, repainted the majority of the car and sold it to me running around 310bhp.

I have owned the car since and made many modifications since then (mostly) with help of Phillywilly and GavBey. She now sits around the 412 bhp mark on a single T04s with custom Vmount setup. She has been well looked after with oil changes every three months and regular maintenance constantly. A lot of you will have seen the car and everyone who does always comments how clean it actually is. When it was last mapped up to 412, we stopped due to ignition breakup. My old coils were dying and have now been replaced with AEM Smart Coils. Its fair to say, a good bit more could be gotten out of her now with no ignition breakup.

Burnout Front bumper with 99 spec lights
Concept 7 HID Flush mount headlights (need new covers)
99 style rears
All side repeaters and reverse/fogs swapped for crystal grey versions
Feed Vented Bonnet  with aero catches
Feed Sidesteps
Rear Diffuser custom cut to fit neater
Work Emotion D9R - staggered, in bronze with KODE Drift bolt on spacers to make the fronts sit flush. Matching wheel nuts.
Tinted rear window in limo black
Rear wiper and aerial removed
Concept 7 Ducktail Spoiler

Custom centre console with Power FC Controller mounted in it alongside AFR gauge and boost controller
Original (good condition) carbon effect seats
Nardi Torino wheel with red stitching and boss
Centre console and panels finished in matt black (one still needs finished)
No radio, due to custom centre console, however I can provide a pioneer mixer which can be hooked to any amplifier, and a bluetooth device
ReA gauge pod on steering column

Mostly replaced bushes for Powerflex, I havent gotten around to finishing all the rears
New droplinks front & rear
Power Steering bushes replaced for Powerflex
Tein Coilovers. The adjusting works fine on them, but they suffer from the typical Tein rustiness on the body - Tein replaced the bottom bushes on these for me a few months ago
Rear Strut Brace in aluminium - not sure on brand
Ferodo DS2500 pads
New discs and calipers all round about 18 months ago
ABS Deleted

Performance stuff :D
As noted above the engine was rebuilt by super 7 around five years ago and had compression at last check.

T04s Singe Turbo 1.1 hotside.
Custom V Mount with black intercooler and fittings
Koyo radiator custom chopped to fit and work in this setup
- These could both do with some ducting, but this has never affected performance even after a good blast.
K&N intake mounted direct to Turbo
HKS style Wastegate and screamer
Full new custom wiring loom fitted (made by Philly Willy) This has some spare terminals built in for any gauges you may want to fit.
Full PTFE braided fuel line setup installed last year with a Walbro GST 400 pump in tank
1680 Bosch Secondaries/850 primary injectors
KG Parts fuel rails and associated fittings in silver
Battery relocated to boot in custom box
AEM Water meth system installed and wired, just needs the nozzle installed onto an intake pipe and a remap if that way inclined - never been used
AEM Smart Coils
Denso 10/10.5 plugs recently replaced
Magnecor 10mm leads
Greddy Intake elbow (semi polished) and ASH silicon/aluminium pipework
DM Motorsport Sump Brace
Blitz Nur Spec rear, with mild steel centre silencer and customer Stainless wrapped downpipe
Innovate MTX wideband AFR
OMP removed - runs 2T at every fillup.
Power FC with OLED Commander
Os giken twin plate clutch with push pull converter

Ok, I am certain there is a whole bunch of things I am missing, and I will update when I can. But thats about the size of it. As with any car this age, there are some negatives, hence I dont want top dolla for it.

•Need new plastic lenses for headlights
•front bumper needs some work as it has a few small crack on top.
- As with any older car the paintwork is good but not perfect - it has a few light scratches if you were to look close enough, but no rust or damage.
•Carpet has a few small holes where a roll cage was once before
•Odometer not working - can be fixed before sale if necessary
•typical rattles on an old modded car
•one rear bush is squeaking, but not knocking. All passed MOT a few months ago so cant be major
•Needs a new AFR Sensor ( I can replace before sale)

What do you get - a good honest reliable fun car to drive. I will miss this car immensely but I need a "normal" machine for a little while. As I said, I am not in a rush, and want her to go to a good home. Test Pilots will have nuts booted. Test Drives can be arranged subject to insurance and a one nut deposit.

Pics to be added later today.

Hi mate,

could you tell me if it's a 2+2 or just 2 seats.
