It looks like the pads for both cars are roughly the same size. And the pistons are the same size too. Not sure what the benefit would be unless it allows thicker pads or rotors...
I've never felt like my brakes weren't adequate for the street. I'm pretty sure I could lock up my tires in most conditions if ABS was disabled. I hear stainless braided hoses make a big difference for the cost.

The brake pads are larger, they are adjusted for the 300mm disc, although in the drawing they seem similar, the contact material is wider and a little longer, the piston is smaller instead of 60 it has 57mm
If the spacing of the caliper fixing screws is the same, it would only be to change the disc for the ST170 and mount this caliper.

You're right that the stock cougar, with its 278mm front and 252mm rear disc brakes very well in normal use.
This is something I think for fun or aesthetics

The Jaguar X-Type and S-Type were sold a lot in Spain in those Pre-Bubble years, and now it is easy and inexpensive to find second-hand parts for those cars.

I wonder if I could buy a full 3.0 engine and use its engine block and pistons

Or if adapting-converting the electronics to a CAN BUS to use that complete engine would take many hours or years of work ...

Future projects ... future dreams ... these days I have to start with the IMRC again ...

Looking for the cars that use that brake pad I have seen that the contour-mondeo MK3 uses that pad with that disc and that caliper.
And it is the same one used by the Ford ST220 model

Knowing this I think it will be easier for me to buy the knuckle of the MK3 mondeo

I think our cougar chronologically and in engineering are in the middle of these cars all from Ford

I don't want to change the whole knuckle just to see if I can change the brake calipers.

But now that you say it, I think that to change the whole knuckle it would be best to mount an axle shaft? with the tip of the cougar gearbox on one side and the mondeo on the other.

Doing this would be very greasy but easy

Hi, I don't have time for more but the 300mm Ford Mondeo-Contour caliper measurements seem compatible.
When I have time to clean the new cougar knuckle, disassemble it, mount the ST170 300mm disc and mount the Mondeo-Contour brake caliper, we will leave doubts.

The rest of the knuckle is not the same but it seems "adaptable" it moves 1cm more from the shock absorber to the brake disc and the steering linkage is 1cm longer, it also has the ABS sensor in the bearing but although I think it could be adapted for now it is not in my thoughts.

Hello since I saw the photos of a duratec with an "adapted" compressor I always think about it, if it is not easier to put it on top and things like that ...
Motor vehicle Automotive fuel system Automotive tire Light Hood
Hood Motor vehicle Automotive tire Car Vehicle


But I don't know anything about compressors,
Question:
Has anyone put a compressor on top of the cylinder head on a cougar?
Where can I learn about compressors? I suppose that the engine displacement demands the characteristics of the compressor?
How are compressors measured?
Thanks

there isnt really room to put one on top unless you but it where the UIM is, but you would have to have an adaptor. You could mount one where the AC compressor is, or where the vortech kit is, mounted on top of the trans with a jackshaft that runs across the motor

Any attempts at forced induction on these cars will be a 100% custom fabrication at this point unless you stumble across someone selling an old setup. Your fabrication skills will decide which way is easiest for you.

A top-mounted blower only sounds easy on paper. There's probably a reason nobody has ever done it. I agree that its probably possible, and might even be the simplest in the long run, but the custom intake manifold required is not something a lot of people are interested in figuring out. Power steering would also require a custom solution but there are multiple ways to skin that cat.

This thread on the Puma forum is an interesting read about trying to install a Supercharger in a location very similar to our Air Conditioning compressor. Many of the problems he was trying to solve are directly applicable to us, and it would be good research for someone trying to go that route.

Jaged uses a jackshaft and has been pretty successful with it. Beans had a pretty good build thread about the same setup.

Hello, thanks for the photos, it is easier.

I understand that you have to make a very homemade adaptation.

I did not know anything about superchargers (the ones that move with the A / C belt)

These days I have learned that the manufacturer gives the maximum revolutions, the maximum working pressure, the capacity and playing with the ratio of the pulleys it is necessary to make a formula that gives the working pressure.

That's right?
The car ECU should not change anything?
The injection: pump and injectors of more capacity? nothing else?

I have seen three types of adaptation:

1º Using tubes, continue using the UIM

2nd Modifying the UIM
Automotive exterior Bumper Automotive lighting Rim Automotive wheel system
Auto part Machine Font Metal Cylinder

3º Using a LIM to Charger adapter
Gas Machine Rectangle Composite material Metal
Gun barrel Gun accessory Automotive exterior Auto part Metal
Product Font Auto part Technology Automotive lighting


This 3rd option seems to me more interesting and laborious but I think there is in our cougar about 12cm + - between the LIM and the bonnet, and there is little space.

Copied from a manual:
"How much boost will I get? The wide-open throttle boost of a roots blower will depend on the displacement of the engine, the
displacement of the blower, and the drive ratio of the blower.
Changing the blower driven pulley (the upper pulley) changes the drive ratio and therefore changes the boost. Other factors, such as
camshaft timing, valve size, and port size will also change the wide-open throttle boost. Check with the Weiand supercharger
catalog or technical service to get the specific boost level you need.
NOTE: The equation for figuring boost with a certain size blower on a certain size engine, and different pulley combinations are as
follows:
(25.58) x (Blower Displacement) x (Blower Drive Ratio)
Engine Cubic Inch Displacement - 14.7 = Boost

EXAMPLE: 350 cu. In. with a 144 blower and 1.95 - 1 drive
25.58 x 144 x 1.95  350 = 20.52 - 14.7 = 5.82 psi of boost

BLOWER DISPLACEMENTS (cubic inch displacement for one revolution of rotors)
142 = 142
144 = 144
174 = 174
177 = 177
250 = 250
256 = 256 "

I think I have a problem with so much imperial measure

I would like to learn why they are very unknown here and although the new 1.4 TSI engines use it and there are already many superchargers of these cars in the scrapyards at an economical price I can not find information of its characteristics

...

The ECU will need to be tuned for the larger injectors and probably larger MAF you would end up using.
...
I think a LIM adapter would be the way to go for a top-mounted unit.
In addition to changing the power steering, you would also need to delete the top motor mount. I believe its possible to fabricate side motor mounts in order to do this (I think the Taurus uses side mounts), but it's just another problem to solve.
...
Superchargers are rare in general, and especially rare on smaller motors such as are more typical in Europe. Turbo's are the modern way of doing things.

i like the concept of mating a plate like that on the top of the UIM, but if youre going that far, why have the runners still? I have contemplated building a box for the UIM with some runners. Shape doesnt matter when boosted. just havent had the time to take the car apart and play with it

If it is something very entertaining it would take a long time.



Today I have looked for information about the EATON 334472 EZ4 that has a 1.4 TSI engine and I have not found anything (this engine is the first one that I see that has a turbo + turbocharger)



But I have found something very interesting:

It is an inverted set where it is hidden between the V of the engine and the air inlet reaches above it, I think that this way the problem of height is avoided.

The set integrates the intake butterfly, injectors, injection rail and almost everything

a shame not having more space

Hi everyone
By moving home yesterday I moved the car to the other city 220km away.

The car needs steering alignment because it goes clearly to the left and it is easier to take left curves.

He made a consumption of 8-9L / 100km
at a speed of 110-120kmh (I have not changed the IACV yet)

There is the problem of rising RPM above 3500-4000 with broken IMRC.

It seems another engine is plugged, strangled, it costs to go over 140km/h 4000rpm.

As in this new house I will not be able to touch it until I change my house again, I am doing other things ...

How to think about direct admission (removing butterflies from LIM)

I thought first of making a box with trumpets but if I respect the screws of the LIM, I lack space and later I thought that it is easier to make one without trumpets as you can see in the photo the ducts and the plenum.

Any ideas?

Any idea of the volume of the plenum?

I guess I always took it for granted, but never realized this was a 2.0 V6. Madness.
