Fiesta ST150 motor into Bantam possibility

Postby MartinST36 » Wed Oct 28, 2015 9:38 pm

So I have a very well build high compression ST motor in a ruined body. My thoughts are to build that into a Bantam
Anybody heard of it being done? I looked at a couple of pages here and so far it dont seem like anybody went that route
Would that be because to many complications?
Anybody have any thoughts on the idea?

Its possible, but you'll have to have custom engine mounts made and might have to cut a bit to fit the gearbox.

If you can fit a LS1 V8 with a turbo in a miata I'm sure anything will fit into a bantam :D

Wiseco 12.6 compression forged piston and rods. 240hp Cossie cams, upgraded valve springs, cossie intake, 60 ml TB, Motor fully balanced bottom end all put together with ARP bolts, high flow cossie water pump and oil pump, Evo 2 miltek big bore branch mani. that is what I could think of of the top of my head. My map was sort of good but not great was still waiting on some adjustments but never went any further.
basically I bent my SWR ST190 motor (water locked) then decided to build this motor. At the time most of everything had to imported as there were not many local parts available. She was my baby until met a lamp post......the rest is history

Does anybody know if somebody has attempted this bantam build yet? Know of anybody that possibly could do the build that I can speak to get some framework of what would be needed and some of the challenges we might face. I have not bought a bantam yet but that is my thinking else I might just buy another Fezzie ST and do the transplant. A pick up will be nice though

I emailed PumaSpeed this morning as I was made aware that possibly they have a kit to assist this build. Their kit is to transplant MK6 ST motor into MK5 Fezzie but should be very similar. Will share some info once they get back to me

Stu?? Is this you under cover?? :lol:
Just kidding...

Should be a very nice conversion. And the Bantam should haul nicely. May want to upgrade the brakes a little? Also maybe convert to full ST150?

:lol: No not Stu, however we do know each other from back when I was still active on the forum. Myself and Callie build motors together. Only difference was he went SC route and I went with a N/A motor and high comp. Stu knows my car and the story behind the story.

I was sort of hoping to be able to transfer most of the front end of my old ST i.e breaks suspension etc to assist with the cost involved but not sure if any of this would fit. I know the MK5 guys did buy up old ST break callipers and rotors to upgrade their breaks so just maybe. The whole idea behind this is because I do need a half tonner and to have a scrap car and bantam seems a bit silly. The other most important reason is much easier sales pitch to Swambo. As it is she is "gat vol" of the old ST standing there..... :shock: :D

Ahhh... Ok, makes sense now. What was your previous forum name?
Should be very cool conversion. Give the bantam some oomph... you know, for work purposes! :lol:
Also remember that you will have a bit of downtime on the build... so you will need to get rid of everything on the Fezz, and have something else to drive, and then build... otherwise your ears will bleed!!

That is what I told the Mrs.....need power for the work horse.
The ST was a toy from the start so bantam in down time not much of an issue. I also thought the Bantam will be nice change and should be an awesome runner once done.
Something different also. For strange reason I think this should be a fairly easy build......I think I hope

Please do it!
I'm looking forward to seeing how much effort it would actually be to shoehorn the 2.0 Duratec ST into the Bantam/Fiesta Mk5 engine bay, and I'm sure many other Bantam owners have thought about it too!

That said, this conversion would only really be worth it if you have an already modded Duratec to go in, because the Rocam 1600 with SWR kit (cam, branch, unichip) will provide similar performance to a stock 2.0 Duratec.
