So the MoT went well, the Stylus passed with an advisory on the handbrake. It wasn't all plain sailing as the damn fuel tank hit the concrete as the wheels dropped onto the brake test rollers, but that will cease to be an issue soon.
Inevitably there are a few technical issues I need to address, but ultimately it didn't go too badly at all & all the good folk at Northampton Motorsport were very professional & efficient.
But you really want to know the numbers don't you?
Weight wise, I knew the car was heavier than the Fury (600kg) because the rear floors, the rear transmission tunnel, the bulkheads & the side panels are all steel, where on the Fury they were aluminium, but having taken a load of weight off the car I was hoping for 650kg after the fuel tank swap. In fact it's 653kg before the fuel tank swap - which could shave another 8 -10 kg off. So that's a good thing.
Then there's the power, I knew the car was similar in performance to the Fury, but the junkyard Zetec actually made 175bhp with 155ftlb torque which gives it pretty much exactly the same power / weight as the Fury, so this is all excellent news.
What was less good was deciding to drive home with the roof down - it pissed down on the M40 making me & the inside of the car very wet indeed - lucky I had those removable seat covers made.
