New Westy Owner

Postby too late » Wed Oct 10, 2018 8:19 pm

Hi all

Purchased in July is my 2ltr 230bhp aerorace chassis Westfield

The shopping list is growing and i already have a list of fixes which i need to do. I am also playing with the idea of replacing the tuned 2ltr zetec for either a turbo or supercharged blacktop...
Question, are there any turbo or supercharged westies local for me to have a nose over?

Thanks
Nick

Hi Nick and welcome to the club. Smart looking westie. There are a couple of forced induction westie in the club.

Rob e has a supercharged one and Steve RST has a turbo one. Not sure if Steve is about at the moment as he was about to go off on a Bike tour for 3 months (again) but they are the guys to speak to.

I am in the closing stages of supercharging my MK Indy buts it’s neither a westie or a Ford so probably no use to you.

Once again welcome.

Welcome to the skcc. Can’t help you on the turbo stuff, running an overheater V7, started out as a Rover V8 attached to a fuel tanker.

Can’t beat a V8 :D
Power.. small nail, fast hammer, Torque.. small nail, big hammer.. I got a big hammer :P

Hi Nick,
230bhp from a N/A Zetec is a good set up. I run a silvertop Zetec Turbo dyno'd at 269bhp at 0.9 bar boost and 235bhp at 0.5 bar. Not in a Westie though, it's in a Quantum 2+2, so still fwd. I didn't build it but happy to try and answer questions if I can.

Jeff had a supercharged Zetec with, I think about 400bhp, so he too should be able to give advice.
