Christian Major 300bhp Escort RS Turbo Top Speed Run. 1600cc CVH

A *friend* of mine had a 300bhp RS turbo a few years ago. It went rather well. Ignore the rev counter on the dash, accurate digital RPM can be seen on the Boost controller. Yes it did light the wheels at 70mph in third, in the dry and it does indeed go off the end of the speedo in fourth.

Ford Escort RS Turbo vs Mitsubishi Evo 7 - Performance Ford Top Speed Thrash
Please read description for full details. Watch in HD! This video was previously uploaded by several accounts, but it is my video. It is me driving, so I can tell you all about the car. It's NOT an Escort Cosworth or Sierra Cosworth as some have suggested. There is a picture of it at the end of the video. This video was taken at the Annual Performance Ford Top Speed Thrash several years ago and was relatively unplanned. It wasn't a 'staged' race. Furthermore, there is no suggestion my me that the Escort is better than the Evo. This video demonstrates the raw power of the Escort. Reeling the Evo in from such a poor start shows just how powerful this car was. It was built ONLY for Top Speed, hence the poor initial start. The Evo belongs to Gary of AP Tuning in Norwich and at the time of the video was around 450bhp. The Escort is a 1989 RS turbo Series 2 (Mk4 Escort Shape). It has a 1600cc CVH engine, the original Block that it rolled out of the factory with. The original completely standard crank is still there too. The car also ran a standard Ford Head Gasket. It was on modern Fuel Injection and highly tuned with a large turbo. Of course the gearbox was modified too, many people have quizzed me over the years about gear ratios and I never disclosed my secrets! To clarify, this car NEVER ran a Dump Valve (or BOV). The noise you hear on gear-changes is the natural Wastegate 'Chatter'. Please note the gear-change just as the speedo goes off the scale! The car always ran on standard pump fuel (usually Shell V-Power), but for Top Speed runs I usually added a bottle of NF Octane Booster for safety. The car was uncontested as the Top Speed record holder for many years, but after a lot of stress and sleepless nights eventually got stripped for parts! Enjoy.

Christian Major Escort RS Turbo 350bhp Performance Ford Thrash Top Speed Run 160mph
Here is a video of my car doing a 160+mph run at RAF Woodbridge for the Performance Ford Thrash a few years back. The spec at this time was not good, it ran a very wild cam and a large GT30, it certainly wasn't this car at its best. Just listen to that lag. OK, so I should have learnt to change gear and not hold it on the rev limiter!!!
