i am biased, but forget the holley and go for a bigger weber, or two. dont know what the rules in victoria are about twin carbs, but if you can get away with it, do it. nothing sounds like a pinto with a pair of webers screaming.
You wash your car like it was your firstborn child, you tend to its needs like it was your own body, you protect it like it's your family, then you drive it like you stole it.

dont put that heavy lump in an original RS(or any escort),you spoil the handeling of the car.
On the pinto go for rl34 cam,double valve springs,grp 1 valves,head work,2.8ltr v6 pistons in a 205 block and rods(2.1tlr),arp bolts,lightened fly,twin 45mm webers,a good set of extractors. Get that all dynoed and it will flog most trick cars on the road today.
(probly not the most user friendly as a daily driver though)
stuff everything........... go the 460, its the only logical explanation
light car, big block = fast
Sir Lefty, You are such a noble man.
But it seems you are a forgetful man. You left out the part about the twin superchargers.. Or is that implied?
Oh and i want this car for road use.. Nar the 3.9 is a bit of a joke i know. But my BestFriends boy friend keeps threating me, saying the escort is weak. So basically i need to spend enough money to beat him. Oh he has a stock 300ZX, or do i just not need to spend any money? :s6:
Yeah, cos twin cam cossie engines are a dollar a dozen - I'll take two
ELXR6 has the go idea. What's more it won't cost you a motza (Well, 3 grand or so, but what's that in car terms? Nuthin!) either. I like the way you say "Head work"... that's like 2/3rds of the work :s1:
Just ripped the head of my Pinto, rebuild time I fear :(
