Partial throttle runs for fuel mapping. Dyno was set to sweep
1000-7000rpm in 18 seconds. Limiter at 6450rpm. Crash at 5400rpm most
likely due bad conrod bearing.
Highlights of season 2013:
Tuned 2.1l Ford Pinto SOHC in anger...
Short clip of a tuned Ford Pinto SOHC engine - bored to 2.1litres, Big
Valve head, ported and polished, match inlet, twin Dellorto DHLA45 carbs,
electronic ignition and a custom Exhaust manifold. This engine made 170bhp on
the rollers at Redline Tuning in Iver, and snapped the propshaft universal
joint like a carrot during a test run - Happy days :).

Ford Capri Mk1 - 160 Hp - Pinto Race Engine
My Capri mk1 GT with Pinto engine and Brainless Exhaust System 3" Selfmade with Hks Muffler and
Fk dumper and Magnaflow with Race Headers. Sounds great for an Pinto OHC
Engine. Stainless Steel.
The engine is modified by my self and have a lot of horsepower. Never was on the
roll, but i Dragraced again a Bmw E36 325 with 192Hp and I was faster by 1 second on the 1/4 Mile.
Crazy Sound with Wheelspin in 2. Gear. On the Hockenheim Race Track the car
beats a Maserati Biturbo and some old
Porsche 911. The Car is Street Legal.
Tyres are Federal SS595 with 205/60 R13 - great tyres for a good price. In
future the car maybe become a capri turbo with a k04 turbocharger. The engine is a ohc pinto like in
the escort mk2 rs2000 rally cars. but no 16v cosworth engine and no 1800rs.
It could be good to drive rallyes too to be an rally car.
the cars weight is only 890kg ;-) so the handling is really great!
I wishI could buy the Federal 595 RS-R in the right dimension.

Ford Capri 2.0 135bhp Rolling Road.
Here's my Capri at Alan Jeffrey's rolling road (Plymouth) on its standard
pinto block with a few choice mods- Weber 38DGAS, Pipercross filter, Kent
FR30 camshaft kit, Vernier Cam Pulley, tubular manifold into Ashley system,
Sierra electronic ignition. Ran 135bhp which wasn't bad for a 100k engine
with a couple of hundred pounds worth of mods!
