Its been to long since i posted here. Not much has really happened with the Zed. Mainly money and other issues to deal with. Here is a few pics of the Zed now. sorry i haven't been posting up. One bad news is that the turbocharger wont be good for very long. There is a crack on the exhaust side of the turbo where a bolt screws in, its not cracked all the way but it soon will so i will need another turbo in the future. Which sucks bad
Update: The guys were able to find a exhaust housing for the turbo. Some guy came in with a blown turbo and the exhaust was in good shape so was able to swap so turbo is all good now
Whats been done:
- The rocker cover and Nizpro plemun painted red
- The stock fuel injectors have been high flowed
- Ecu installed in the engine bay
- Gave them a genuine Ford starter motor to be put in
- Heater hoses done so i can have heat in the car. Yay!!
- Surge tank for the fuel tank
- Bigger fuel lines
And a few other things which i cant remember right now, but will post when i can remember.
Yes that black thing in the back there is the ecu. lol!!
Heater hoses installed

Have you got any pics of the crack in the turbo, it might not be as bad as you think.
no i havent but the guy said that it will crack right through eventually. or i can just get another exhaust side of the turbo, dont need aonther turbo. I dont want a bolt coming lose. will see if he can take a pic of it.

I will keep my fingers crossed you sort out your matters and keep the car. It's a beast and anybody considering building would have to seriously look at your car if they were after a modified car.
