My Turbo Paseo...EX-race car...


Hey guys,

I've been here since 06' but only used to come in spurts, lol. Basically I've had my Paseo since 05' but have known of the car since my high school days. Nothing special, Teal blue with black interior.

Long story short its been threw plenty of hands and I finally acquired it from the last owner's bookie. The engine was blown and turbo very tired. The interior had been taken out and a 4 point roll cage installed, Jazz racing Seat and not alot else.

I've put a few engines in it trying to play around but have done the same everytime, basically blown it up due to poor tuning availability for the Paseo. I run a Ford aftermarket tuning company, even have unlimited access to a dynojet but still nothing that would satisfy the needs of 20+psi on a 1.5 engine.

I've since had it at my dads place in the back yard under some tree's. I finally got the bug again to mess with it but this time I'm going to do it differently.

I've stumbled across a black Paseo at the local Pull a part and the interior was cherry! I got the seats, center console and alot of other misc stuff to help reinstall the interior in this car. Sun faded yes, but torn up no, except the driver's seat bolster which is at a interior shop now getting redone.

Here's a few shots of it when I brought it home a few weeks ago...







Since I've removed the Jazz "uncomfortable as hell" race seat and the cage bars below it. I'm dying my seats middles teal blue with Rit dye, just put 2 teaspoons to 3 cups in a old spray bottle and the black back to black with the same. I did review a few different methods here and just didn't like the idea of the textured seats using fabric spray in a can.





Before....





After dying, still need to install...

Engine management...

This is where it kinda gets tricky, like before mentioned I tune Fords near daily. I'm very knowledgeable about them. I'm going to install a Ford engine harness and PCM from a late 90's Ford Escort. This way I will have full control over the engine management system, will be able to remove the Distributer and run a MAF sensor to be able to adapt to the elements and air flow requirements.

I've done this before on a V6 Ford engine that was never fuel injected and its still running like a dream, and spraying 125 shot at the track.

I think I' recall someone doing this before from a contour but can't find it anywhere, all I find when I look up Ford electronics is the Mega Squirt EDIS.


Engine..

I've found a nice replacement engine from a local friend on To! Never would have known him if it hadn't been for this site. I'm still going back 5EFE but I'm not going 300whp, gonna shoot for 275 and work through my suspension ALOT. Found a killer deal on a strut tower brace, engine mounts, and offset LCA bushings.

I want to put this car back on the road and have some fun with the locals. It used to be well known in the late 90's around town but a new breed of racers has come about now. I'm going to run BFG 15"drag radials as well as lower it on all corners.

Thanks for your input! If I can get this Ford system working I think it would be a much cheaper alternative to complete aftermarket systems and the tuning support is everywhere.

Thanks, Doug

Old dyno shot....

A few pictures from the other day, I did wash it the day it was brought home from those first photos. Funny, the wife said " It doesn't look as bad as you described?" Lol, she saw it AFTER the wash ;)

I've removed the spoiler, need to fill in the holes

I've begun removing the tint but as you see it's bubbly and comes off in quarter inch pieces :dunce:

Any advise for removing old tint??

I like the spoiler off, reminds me of a notchback 5.0 :pepper:

Got some interior stuff done this weekend. I was able to cut that seat frame out that was attached in one spot to the cage, like it was doing anything. I also installed my drivers and passengers seats, loosely, because I don't have the carpet figured out yet. I just want some regular black carpet but I want it to have some wear properties, got some cheap carpet from a friend but its just not what I'm looking for.

Funny, these photos should be backwards but I'm removing the aftermarket seat bars not installing them.





YES, I'm removing those two huge red wires, if I can get back to pull a part before its gone I'm gonna to get an entire dash harness.

I've still got to figure out what I'm going to do with these two tanks.


One is a fuel cell, which I'm putting a stock tank back in it so that's covered. The other is a reservoir for the Air-to-water inter cooler.

what about geting an auto trans radiator and flushing it then running your turbo lines to where the trans lines hook up , if not then use one of the overflow tanks they use on hot rods.
i have a new aftermarket oil, trans cooler that should work, let me know if you want it.
