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.

hi lunaticSS,
sorry no idea which bb they use ?
that link works fine for me maybe busy or something as they have over 6500 members :)

EatnS10s: yea ive seen that clip looks great,but no it aint me ;)

Cobra: 1/4 mile times :

i will have a more accurate time soon as my local strip have just bought new timing gear , reaction time ,terminal speed ,etc etc .
but i keep this car in mint condition only covered 13 970 miles since 1996 .
I dont race or rally it .(so my times are probably slower than its capable off)

I have only done 1/4 mile in 13.11 secs .

i have seen a few local cosworths doing low 11's seconds....but they have no respect for thier motor ..6000 revs and side step the clutch ..
damm FAST .

Being a Pommie and now living in Aus i miss all these cars........Escort Cosworths and RS Turbo's were my ultimate cars growing up.........i did have an XR2i.

If i could get a mint Escort Cosworth over here i would sell my XR8 in a flash.......

I usually buy Perforamce Ford and Max Power but have been having trouble getting PF lately.......
