Turbo BARRA Ford Cortina sleeper
A relatively simple yet highly effective engine conversion is updating the
factory crossflow Ford six powered Cortina to the newer DOHC Barra engine
as found factory fitted in the XR6 turbo. Antony's Mark V / TF example is very neat
and shows a real stock presence. While internally stock, the turbocharged six cylinder has some choice bolt ons
that have enabled the street car sleeper to dip into the nine second
bracket. Tuned by: Dyno-Mite Performance.
