    That gave me butterflies, the ebay advert offers "3 to 36 Moths Warranty Available with all our cars."
    Cabrio, Omex 2.0l 150bhp Zetec blacktop, Omex ECU and wiring loom.

    I remember seeing this car back in the 90's I think. Turned up at a meeting /event at the Honiley Boot Inn.

    That's why I recall it. Never seen or heard of another with that motor. Installation is very offset which I presume causes issues with the driveline?

    That's Dave Cooks old car the engine isn't as off set as it appears the engine leans over to the off
    side to get the manifolds inside the engine bay, but the crank line is almost in line with the drive train.
    Ben Caswell probably not the last word on anything here!!
