Will Pedley Racing – Focus ST170 ITB conversion

Earlier this year I asked my friend Will Pedley to have a look at an unusual knocking noise on my Ford Focus ST170. What began as a quick engine swap turned into a full on project.

This is the first time Will had tackled a Jenvey ITB (individual throttle body) conversion but you wouldn’t know it from the finished product. The video below gives you a quick glimpse of my Focus ST170, now running 200 bhp @ 8,000 rpm. Yes – eight thousand rpm 🙂

The content over the following pages is taken from Will’s progress/build thread over on the Ford Focus Owners’ Club (FFOC.co.uk). The purpose of pasting it here is to introduce Will to the benefits of natural search engine optimisation. In short, I’m demonstrating why Will should post this keyword heavy content on WillPedleyRacing.com.

Over time I am editing the content to make it read a little better (bearing in mind you’re only seeing Will’s posts which means I am leaving out 100s of replies from other FFOC users) so I apologise if things don’t appear to flow in the meantime.

Update – 12th November, 2010 – I have chopped the post up into 20 or so pages as the sheer number of images / videos was killing my laptop. Next up, I’ll embed all of the images (as some fail to load from Photobucket) and add a little index card so you can jump to various sections of the build 🙂

  1. Brill write up, fantastic even, so glad that this has been looked at before I venture down this road,

  2. Hi Jonathan,

    Glad you like it – I’ve merely borrowed the content from Will Pedley a means of showing the importance of Search Engine Optimisation – although it is my car!

    If you’re looking to do something like this I would say without hesitation to give him a shout http://www.willpedleyracing.co.uk 🙂

    From your e-mail (which isn’t shown to the masses) can I assume you have a Fiesta? I can only imagine how quick a smaller car would be with this engine :0)
