FastDans Fiesta XR2

Dan bought this 1988 Crystal Blue XR2 at Christmas 2000 as a standard car with 78k on the clock. He gradually restored it to a clean condition before doing the turbo conversion around christmas 2002. Since then the engine has developed from the standard low boost conversion to what it is today. Future plans include a wide band lambda sensor, new block and 14psi of boost.
