The XR4Register Profile - Simon Stephens aka Gengis

Ford Sierra XR4i - 'Project WOO'

Photo Gallery for Gengis XR4i when bought

This XR4i was brought on the 12th February from the XR4i centre in Essex. It has been standing in a garage since 1998, which is probably the reason why the body is in such good condition for a 20 year old Sierra.

The only major corrosion is to the O/S/R wheel arch and some minor corrosion to the sill to floor area. It still retains its original front wings, which are in excellent condition so are the inner wings and chassis rails. The rest of the body is in good condition except for a few small dents where doors have been opened onto something.

The original plan was to fit a 5 litre V8 into it but after several discussions with Bhav, I managed to prize one of the brand new 4 litre Explorer engines out of his sweaty palms!!!! Bhav was sure that the sump and gearbox from a 4x4 would fit with some minor modification and he was spot on. Cheers mate.

Accompany Gengis on his trip to change this standard 2.8 XR4i into a Ford Explorer 4 litre XR4i......
