Well the title describes everything! This is a colossal job that finished successfully.If your wondering right now how did he do this, that’s ok cause this is the exact question that we’re doing all the time ,even though the pictures tells everything with details.When we first saw this we were not sure if this is a waste of Koenigsegg engine or just a lucky Ford Granada ,but seeing the giant work that is done now we think its worth!Those guys are very talented!We can’t even imagine how difficult and almost impossible has been to fit a hypercar engine inside an old car but for the owner we think this was a must do, so the result was a perfect gift for his beloved car!We suggest to have a look at the gallery where each procedure is explained through the pictures, also you can enjoy the old pictures when this car has been participating in several events and don’t forget to check out our favourite part …the Dyno part !
Be sure to watch the video link at the bottom of this thread!
First simulation we did on the engine platform i use now, basicly this is a very mildly reworked 4.6 liter engine, running 2 bar boost with std. cams.
The engine going into the granada is a heavily reworked unit, with nothing even close to standard.
Inlet manifold colour and coil pack placement is not decided upon yet as you can see…
A small but very necessary mod had to be done.. :
You take a 1100hp capable ford cobra diff :

It was supposed to be an easy task, to modify the front hubs from 5×112 to 5×114.3
Engine fitted, and this time it is supposed to be there permanent for a while.. –
The pictures of complete engine, with inlet, coils, f.rails and wastegates is something to look forward to, it looks pretty cool
Oil coolers now in place, i feel this was the best available location for them, very subtle , and very efficient…
