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 :).
