That is a very nice car mate.

I love the fab work on the manifolds    

I wish I had the time and space to build a car like that.

Got any pics of the suspension setup?

Hi yes i have i built the car about 20 years ago , i've only just learnt how to get pic's on to site thanks to another member . will sit down one night and put pic of the complete build , nearly sold it last year but decided to put a 24v engine in and turbo ,  it's running  on a emerald K3 think it needs a bigger turbo as the boost is dropping off from about 3500 rpm down to 3psi.

Yeah not too bad, I want to get a adjustable rear beam next or modify mine. Only problem I`ve got is no room to work on it in the workshop now I`ve got that mk2 fiesta stored in there aswell.

I cant think of anywhere locally fella but a mate of mine has just had the power steering pump his Merc lorry recon`d so I`ll find out for you.

Lovely job Gerry, very nice install.

I'm doing a 24V V6 Cossie BOB 4x4 Puma atm, almost finished the back end install now. Full build pics on http://www.skyewheelnuts.co.uk]www.skyewheelnuts.co.uk "In The Shed".

As I'm gonna Rally it it's having the N/A BOB in it first, then over the winter I'm gonna re build my spare engine into a 2.5 litre "short stroke" BOB twin turbo for it, using a 2.3 Cologne Crank with Explorer 4.0 con rods.

Cheers Dave

Great looking car that, is it a genuine gartrac escort?
Love the engine conversion too, would be amazing to see what it will make with 10lbs boost through it.

Hi Gerry,

The 4 pot turbo yr using is too small, you will need a GT2836 Garret or similair.

Yeah it will be fine..... The turbo was also fitted to a lot of 5 cyl audi quattro's  I think its cos the air it pumps is more than enough to feed 6 cyl's and it wont loose that much boost as it goes through the system. I have been told that it should start producing boost at approx 2800 rpm then make good boost at around 3200 rpm. But until i finish mine and try it i cant say if thats the case but it should go ok.....

Hi the escort has gone very well with the turbo 24v BOA in had to uprate the clutch as the std cosy escort item just slipped once the boost was sorted out , so in went a Alcon 6paddle clutch and must say how nice it was to drive with just a tiny bit heavyer then the esco one , we had some live mapping done taking boost up to 9to10psi and pushed the timing as much as we could , the car really flew and the low down torque was great  :blink:, it developed a rattle in mid range rpm just for a second or two then went away , I thought it was ( det ) but when I got it on the road last year it drop number 6 cyl , after checking compression number 6 was dead , so off with the heads to find gasket on No6 was damaged , still this rattle was niggling me so decided to take it all out and strip it down ,only to find No 6 piston was very badly cracked, so this was my rattle I've been hearing bad small end play due to crack . was going to rebuild it my self tho decided now to get it done by Fieldmotorsport with fully floating low comp pistons ARP bolts, rods will be treated and crank to , and what ever else needs doing ,  he use to do my brothers YB for rallycross , he a very nice guy and I can trust him , will get the engine back dyno run ready to go .pictures are on the link below

Hey Rob, I am using 440cc Scooby STI injectors  ;) They fit our side feed rails perfect with the Ford O rings  ;D 330bhp was no problem with the flow.

Gerry, Good luck with the rebuild  ;) Gonna be sweet when done  :laugh:
