[Quantum Owners] Re: New engine for a saloon Mark Mon Apr 02 02:00:06 2012

I fitted a zetec to my saloon. Didn't use the injection though, but fitted 
bike carbs. For the water pump I used the CVH one, fitted in the same way 
you would do for the ZVH. I'm still running the standard fiesta BC box, but 
would recomend fitting an IB5 one as the starter is round the back away 
from the exhaust.
As a start I hope this helps
