basically ill start by saying i pretty much no f.a about motors as this is my first
and ive had bikes in the past.Anywway my neighbour who is a kingsize coksucker by the way owns a sierra cossy and hes outside 24/7 with the bonnet up fiddling with it and revving the fucking nuts out of it,even though i know for a fact theres nowt wrong with it.what i want to know is are these motors something special only whenever i pull up in my zed he throws me the most dirtiest looks as if hes looking down at me through hes nose,and its got me wondering.I know these cossys used to be cars people went mad for when i was a kid but i thought it was now a case of common as shit like the rs turbos ended up rnd here.
what do you guys think i was curious.thanks apreciate your time
p.s hes out there now revving nuts out of it

2 litre Turbo, I think they can be tuned to a very high BHP with the right parts.
If you want to know more about cosworths go to www.passionford.com and have a scout round there site.
Some useful info.
They are very quick.
But it's a Ford so....
You don't live in Watford do you?

Theres a seirra 4x4 cosworth with stage 2 everything and a wickid boost controler, bailey dump valve the lot. thats running about 380bhp with the boost control. had it off the clock at 180mph.

fiesta RSTurbo running about 280bhp est full engine rebuild uprated cams pulleys Head ported and polished triple layer gasket T2 turbo fuly lightened bottom end full samco hose kit etc blitz dump valve helix racing clutch. off the clock at 160.

cossies are a different kind of car, i'm a big ford fan (minus the KA) and recently a sierra cosworth managed to become the first cossie to break 200 mph.

the escorts have held their value alot better than the sierras but thats doesn't mean the sierra is shit, just not a good as the escort.

lets put it this way, how many cars have you seen on a J reg, K reg still are worth £15k and are probably ragged. A mint condition escort cosworth would set you back atleast £25k. not many cars that old are that valuable.
sierras are cheaper about £6-7k usual price, probably £10-12k mint condition one.

£5-6k but mint condition ones with low mileage fetch more obviously as they are as rare as rocking horse shit in mint condition.

The Escort Cossie is basically a Sierra cossie 4x4 with a shortened wheel base, the basic sub structure of the car is the same, and they are all AWESOME!

the above car i mentioned the seirra cossie the bloke who owns that is 26 he managed to get his quotes down from 2k to 600 quid... but he is a professional driver so i supose that would cut his in half.

he had to get someone out to look at his engine tho because of all the mods hes got.

Im on the look out for a cossie engine to go in my project car (ford capri) im painting it next month.
I still think they are one of the best engines nice and easy to work on.
A mate of mine let me drive his escort for the day but i think the older seirra 3doors rwd are best more fun to drive when you get the arse out.
