Mate that is awesome. I had a friend that tested a modified Cosworth Escort out against a Ferrari 308 gt and this escort blew it away up to 110 kph in a number of runs but it was the ferrari all the way after 110.This escort could haul off the mark and I see your 0-100 is very rapid as well at 4.2 sec.Does the blow off valve help much to keep power up out of the gearchanges. Leather is beaut as well.

hi bbf,
the escort cosworth T25 has an integral dump valve on the turbo ,which basically keeps the turbo spinning between gearchanges, so not much turbo lag.

I have relocated mine, dosent make much if any perfomance increase .. just great sound :) wooosshhh...tssssshhh :)

fifer.

Ok.The valve also looks good in the engine bay.I hear a number of WRX Subaru's with the blow off valves around here.
This is off topic but are you a member of a club or know of other Cosworth owners that might be interested in the forum and sharing pic's info etc as it would be great to see and hear more about these cars.
