Hi there bit of a newbie to this site but i was wondering if anyone on here has done a bike carb conversions to a mondeo before as i'm starting to do one and was wondering if anyone has any experience with this or anything to look out for already got a few bits together:

2.0 si boot mondeo.....
gsxr bike carbs
inlet manifold fabricated
facet pump
filter king
silicone connection hose.
esc module and loom.

and thats about it i need to get my hands on a mk1 sender pump unit to i can modify it so it has no pump on it but will still read whats in the tank.

Was considering it last year as the sound is amazing but have chosen to get a supercharger again now. Tabby Cat has a citrine running on bike carbs, has an ST170 head also!
My old Mk2 - from then to now HERE!

If your car doesn't already have a boot, you can buy one from a car boot sale!

Yeah i seen that but there more like throttle bodies than carbs wondering if carbs had been done before on here? ive managed to work out an average main jet size off a a vauxhall website (spit!!!) but that was going off a stinky stilton cheese vauxhall square engine design........... not a long throw ford zetec design.

not many have done carbs as they tend to drink fuel like a fish harder to set up ,tend to fail emissions and dont get so much power as a fuel injected car with throttle bodies
tb's are more fuel effient get better fuel burn better on emissions more power too !!!
17" tsw reflexs;st rear bumper; bomz kit; fast road cams/obx pulleys,underdrive pulley, drop 30mm eibach springs blueflame catback exhaust; 4.1 ceramic coated exhaust manifold; custom down pipe/highflow cat


list to do :-
st bodykit 300mm disc conversion+rear disc; custom management 45mm throttle; bodies gasflown big valve head; comp ratio increased 11:1

to own another ford with a difference :flipoff:

thats interesting to hear as i had no idea what to expect any more info on what else hes running to achieve this ie exhaust , de-cat, management jet sizes in the carbs, clearance issues etc, etc

megasquirt or omex seems to be the management most use, omex is silly money though (where MS isnt)

exhausts these days seem to be chosen on whatever is going cheap at the time :} decats work well on any zetec.

stage 2 or stage 3 cams and headers will work well with the carbs/TB's, as will lightened engine components (adjustable cam gears, flywheel, underdrive pulleys etc)

i dont want to go into too much detail in case you are doing it on a budget.

i dont know anything about the jet sizes, try turbosport or passionford forums.

As you mentioned yes this is being done on a budget as the car was only purchased for £190 the inlet cost £10 to have made and the carbs were £70 as for the managment this was robbed from a mk4 escort 1.3 carb with edis, i have not to long ago got a mk3 escort running a 1.8 zetec running 40's running the same loom and its seriously quick and the loom and all its components cost the grand sum of £8!!!!

so again on a budget......
