    i dunno dude, i think the engine bay might be a little too small for the z20let.

        the fiesta sounds pretty awsome
        the conversion for the meriva sounds ambitious but would make it a little easier to tune i suppose

          i was going to try this conversion on my corsa and it didnt look promising mate. and the meriva bay seems alot smaller than the corsas.

            I dont think for one min it would be a simple conversion but from what my mate says its possible and for sev 2 say it is then its worth lookin into it and if u have never heard ov sev his cossy fiesta is 4 sale on piston heads he has in his garage a twin 350bhp engine mk2 fiesta and hes not long converted a mk4 escort cabby 2 a 4x4 380 bhp cossy and make bespoke stuff for most cars

                  ask regal, and thorney, that is who offered me advise mate. not saying it cant be done as it could have been done on the corsa. but for the money it wouldve costed to do the conversion it wouldnt have been worth it.

                          yeah realy intresting i dont think it would be that bad the engine loom could be spliced to the car loom ov the merv and or use a bespoke loom and mangment i know just the kid for that jano at odkidd creations wouldnt be a lot to get an exhaust custom made one i dont know i dont think it would cost any more than say 2k 3k at most guna give it some serious thoughts
