Got 1 more on my photobucket but can't work out how to copy n paste from my phone, I will take more pics next time it's up outside my house should be back on road soon, still mint absolutely beautiful motor

Matt

is this the missing one or is that one still missing? mk05 wasnt it?

lovely looking motor, that front bumper really changes the whole front end
24v Manual Scorpio **FDS2000 Scans - Birmingham**

This is the very first proto-type.

Sadly only fitted with a 2.8 single turbo but still a very nice motor!

This is the development car, my parents bought it from the motorshow in 88 I think maybe later.

It had lots of different clips n holes where they had tried different bumpers and like Dave said only had a single turbo n 2.8 engine this was tested by Noel Edmonds, I grew up with this car and it took me to school everyday for years :)

That's piped up very unusually for a single turbo, does it not use the intercooler?

looks to me like the pipe at the front comes up from the intercooler to the intake on the MFI inlet  :o
looks good to me tho, quite like that front bumper as well  ;D

ttxr4x4

i think the intercooler has the inlet and outlet at the same end.

littlegems4x4

Yeah I did wonder about that, seems an odd idea though, the boost has an awful lot longer distance to travel............

v6gerry

hi there a picture my old 2.8i tt showing how they were piped up  i had in my escort before i went 24v ( in members cars under 24v 4x4 turbo escort ) the sierra in the pic does have a very long pipe work , guess it would make it a little laggy ?
cherrs

TimoXr4i

Rotating the inlet 180 degrees will make the pipes way shorter, but youll probs need a very lng throttle cable :rolleyes:

littlegems4x4

Just looks odd, not the way they normally are, maybe it's to get rid of the amount of bends in the standard set up.............


Dave


Looks like a decent job was done of the restore, remember this car was in bits for years in a garage.  :mellow:
Dave

YNBK

Dave think it was in bits for around 9 years so its in decent condition don't want to show you the pics of the back lights or the filled in back door handles :( truly awful.

Its going back to standard I believe though

When you mentioned that,I thought it was this one

It's a different one evidently,G260 NRA

Dave


No same car mate.

That number plate is off the Dimma 205 that was on the stand next to it.

Didn't want the car to have an old E plate on it lol

Good job it was a private road.  ;D

Didn't know what one was until now. There's one being driven around Rawtenstall,or it might be a replica

TwinTurbo

Dimma was the replica of the T16 ;)

Were all the rage back in the 90's

Could well be real that Paul, Dimma was based just up the road from where we live ;)

Yeah that is the one mate.

I believe it is now back to standard and should be making some more appearances around Dewsbury.

Amazing car

Dave

The G260 NRA Dimma had TT's top 205 conversion on it & I think was red, thought I had a picture of it but can't find it. It was very rapid as you can imagine!

DVLA shows it has not been taxed or sorned since 17/03/1997 so got to be dead!

You mean it's back to how TT had it for the shows not a boggo xr4x4 lol ;D

Dave

YNBK

Dave

its back to how TT had it, I think MinkerBoy from here has it and it hasn't been taxed because the previous owner had it stuck in a garage (think people thought it was crashed)

I believe minker boy is gonna put it back on its own reg but you will have to ask him (if he ever signs back in)
