  1. Yes i couldnt get them out of my D5 fast enough they transmitted noise and vibration into the cabin and made the car way more diesely even to the point where my missus commented on the noise (normally she doesnt notice anything about the car) but all my other engine/suspension mounts are standard so if you already have other mounts polly'd then they wont make any differance id have thought they worked great on my T5 for making the front end feel (maybe in my head?) tighter
  2. I get that, i did my 1 lap in the D5 and put a sticker on it happy days but that was a small part of a differant holiday if it was a ring trip id have been climbing the walls not being able to lap it like the T5, sort out a road trip with the missus and swing by the ring in the merc I very nearly did more laps in my D5 it was only the missus complaining that stopped me and thats way less fun to drive then your merc if you bring the merc on a ring trip i can see you ending up doing quite a few laps not that its a bad thing just be sure your happy to do that before you leave
  3. The transmission mounts fail every other week afaik also check your top engine mount every time my car has had the clunk on accelerating hard/letting off its been that - also if yours is an aftermarket yellow bush in it then its almost certainly that
  4. Hi welcome to the forum cant help with the volvos that are missing a cylinder but theres a fair bit of work been done to some T4's on here so you should be able to find some good ideas
  5. As i said before it will work (obviously) but i still think you will have more fun in the ATR if the C30 isnt ready for whatever reason shouldnt be too hard to blow the cob webs off the vtec yo and get it good to go?
  6. If you modify them enough its not too hard to ruin the refined comfy feel after a week at the ring in the 850 i always enjoy getting back into the D5
  7. Oh yea caught with "random" recordings of babestation and the like again hu?
  8. Tbh i cant really give you much advice but il take some wild stabs in the dark to maybe get the ball rolling - the properly trendy thing to do with the block is to shim it bore it out to a 2.5litre and run that afaik the stadard 2.5 pistons and rods will be more then up to any turbo you want to run I think the me7 head will flow better then an 850 one but an 850 head doesnt have vvt so potentially an 850 exhaust pully and NA 850 cams (slightly higher lift then standard T5 ones) will be what you want ive seen an 850 make 450hp on stock intake and exhaust manifolds so imo they are fine
  9. Yea do you lot have nothing better to do other then breaking your cars 4 weeks before a ring trip fs amatures, glad im not one of the 8
  10. Hater, its comments like that which make me want to keep them welcome to the forum Mark keep us updated on the build
  11. Yep you didnt do anything wrong then and even with his mirror folded where did he think you had gone? If you wernt in the rear view mirror you had to be beside him is that what you think altered the steering slightly (great raceing driver excuse btw :p)
  12. Are you the blue car in front? What did that look like from your car? but that seamed like a big shunt and he wasnt coming accross the track that quick and it seamed like you should still of had space so from that it looks like you punted him off if you were on the edge of the track and held your line and didnt turn in then fair play raceing incident he should have left you space imo but im not a receing driver so i dunno
  13. Understandable hopefully see you next year maybe you could trailer the fiesta over and lap that
