Went to pick up an engine today & didn't expect this!
« on: September 23, 2012, 00:33:00 AM »
Got a great deal on a low mileage BOB but when I got there I was not prepared for what can only be described as a shed of wonder!


The guys workshop was full of rare & wonderful things that took me two hours just look round LOL!


Anyway I thought some of you would appreciate this beast.



Is it a 3 door Cossie copy?



No it's much more!

Infact about 450lbs torque & 400bhp more!



Can you even imagine the grunt this thing must have  ;D
Over 600lbs of torque from almost tick over is crazy.

O.K not Ford Powered but respect all the same!

Beast just about sums it up.

It chewed up & spat out a STD 7.5 Cossie diff in a few hundred miles.

That's why the back end is out of the car.

He is just welding up a live axle using a 8.8 diff with watts linkage etc.

Uses the STD Viper 6 speed box but with the STD Cossie diff the first 3 gears was useless.
Started off in 4th!

New diff is a 2.7 so should be much better.

Will do over 60 in 1st gear LOL!

However next on the list is a super charger so already the diff is seen as a temp fix & a stronger unit will be on the cards when it breaks.

I think the goals are sub 10 sec quarters & 200 mph!

A completely insane car!


The car is only one of his projects, hidden away are things just as impressive Ford related!

It was only built a few months ago, Chris had to rush it to be able to take part in the show season.

Still got STD Cossie 3 door brakes on it etc.

Lot's of planned mods still to be fitted to this car over the winter!

Dyno print out is from the Ford Fair dyno.

Welcome to Ford Power Chris.

The Sierra is simply bonkers mate, I am sure others would also be interested in what else you have in your work shop too!
