just to say hi, & offer my services.
« on: June 26, 2007, 13:21:04 PM »
Hello everyone, me names Barry, im new the site but not the scene, iv owned old fords since leaving school, Mk1 and Mk2 Escort mainly  and the odd Capri, at the moment I still own the first one I brought, an 81 Australian spec mk2 RS2000. A few of you may have seen flying around 3-4 years ago, wife kids and the fact that the prop snapped racing an RS turbo on the A13 forced me to park it up for a while,  but now it time to uncover it and see what‚‚žÂs left.
Iv also inherited my dad‚‚žÂs 94 Granada Cosworth, im hoping to play with this, keep it as a family car, iv been told I can quite a bit of power out of it to make a nice sleeper.
A bit about myself,  im 27 and live in Grays, Essex.
I own a small body shop/garage in the Basildon area, so I can be of any help to anyone just ask.

24V produces 195ish stock

Various tweeks can be done to get that up a bit, but if it's stayig in the Granny you have to keep it able to pass emisions so keeping the cats is a downer...

hi, can i run this pass you.

what i wanted to do is fit the bob cams, remove the cats, and replace whole exhaust, maybe fit a different air filter and iv also got an ECU chipped and maped for a track car, my friend has the ecu in his 24v 3 door cossie but hasent tested it yet. the air con fan has packed up so im hopeing to get twin kenlows and do away with the cooling fan thats fitted. i know by removing the cats the emisions go up and it my not pass an mot, but i can work on the as and when.

should this give a decent increase in power? or so i need to spend loads of money on turbos etc.
