RWD 1.6 ecoboost on port injection with type 9 just sold on locostbuilders :D

The unloved 1600 zetecs are cheap as chips.

1600 Zetec weighs the same as the 2.0

A Zetec-S on the other hand..or the 1.0 3-pot?

I was looking at the Zetec S as the 1.0 will need a Di ecu as per my 2.3?

A good 1600 is £50, a good 2 litre is 2k :D

The Di can be converted, as per the eco boost here.

That would work, like a CVH and I’m sure there’s an SS1 out there that could provide a bell housing and gearbox..

Shouldn’t be too bad with the alloy head? Power wise it’s probably just about right..
