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

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

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

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 ?

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

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.............

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

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

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

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.

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!

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)
