THIS IS NOT A CLASSIFIED AD .
Ive had this in my garage for years now thinking that one day i'd use it again .
so ive been thinking about selling it but dont really know how much for .
for those who are wondering what it is , its part of a turbo conversion kit ford produced for the mk3 escort xr3 before the rs turbo came out and the part in the picture is what bolts on top of the carburetor and extremely rare . its pretty similar to the turbo technics conversion .
i hope someone can help . thanks in advance , Marc .

Ebay. 99p Start. It'll find it's own value.
:)

In reality?
I suspect around £50. But auction could see it go for WAY more than that!

Just end the auction if you aren't happy, or get a friend to bid an amount you'd like for it so at least someone else has to bid more to win it.

I'm guessing you have a price in mind then?
Isn't that what reserves are for?

If you remember what you paid for it 'way back when'..
Double that and put that as the reserve.

Either way, you'll make money on it if it sells then.

Zetecs are on their way out.
Duratec is where it's at now.

Ecoboost will likely be next.
