hey guys and girls, i was just about to give up hope with signing up, i though i was doing somthing wrong.

thanks for the activation admin/s

this site looks awesome and ive heard good things about it.. and its ment to be THE place for all your 24v cossie needs  

Any how.. im martin Hi  im from wales

and i drive a bmw  lol

but my project is a mk6 escort that im putting the granada motor in. im hoping to get it done for show seaon next year.. but only time and money will tell.  

Any advice on tuning the 24v would be much appreciated, or any weakpoints that would needd chaning.

Welcome to the forum!

You'll find a lot of info on the 24V, but search the forum before asking, as some questions tend to come back every now and then (BOA/BOB cams, or turbo choice for instance)

Is your plan installing a 24V in a escort cosworth? Nice project indeed.

Good luck with your project!

how do  

cool idea on the conversion, just be careful with the SVA side of things   keep the original front suspension and steering and you'll be safe with points scoring  

from what i know of the granada LSD, they are fine if they are looked after, but dont like much abuse at all really as it kills the viscous coupling inside them

SVA does not exist anymore, and I don't think it would need an IVA as it's a modification on an existing registered vehicle chassis.

There has just been some info in ppc mag about shell mods. Looks like the dvla lot are getting tough on mods. Bulkhead and floor/tunnel mods means it needs this new iva test( think that's it's name). It's so bad anyone (like me) who has a group 4 built mk2 escort would need it testing. Never mine going form to rwd. It's a minefield.

as far as i know it goes on the points system as to whether it will need a IVA test or the equivelant of the sva. IVA is basically a super MOT i beleive. but if the front suspension and steering are kept, and theres only slight modifying of the floor plan for the tanny and rear axle, it should be ok on points to not worry  

think anything built already isnt a problem anyway. the bastards at VOSA/DVLA are out to get us what ever way they can
