Our new Exo Rocket chassis, not painted. Although Exo Sports Cars adapted the engine bay to mount the 1.6 EcoBoost engine we may have to do some extra modifications to accommodate the extra cooling requirements of the engine.
Our Ford Fiesta ST180 1.6 EcoBoost donor engine being cleaned and freshened up before we fit it. The engine came from an accident damaged and had some broken components car so we will have to replace the necessary parts, plus we changed the head gasket and timing belt.
A case of "out with the old and in with the new" this week on #ProjectRocketBoost We removed the rear crossmember and torque mount for 2 reasons; 1. It wasn't in the right place since we moved the engine, and 2. It wasn't straight as it was made from 2 separate pieces of tube. We now have a new 1 piece crossmember and new clevis for the torque mount with a revised design to give better rigidity. Next job, sorting out the gearbox mount with a different, stronger, lighter design.
