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
Ford Sierra RS500 - first run on boost in ten years On the Dyno at Motorsport Developments
Ford Sierra RS500 Cosworth - In for some restoration work over the last
month and now having its first ever on Boost run in ten years. Once the slight miss
was ironed out with a new coil she was good to go. Love these cars when
standard. Awesome! This run was done on our 4wd Dyno Dynamics Dynotech Rolling Road Chassis Dyno at Motorsport
Developments in Blackpool, Lancashire. Housed in its own virtually
soundproof custom Dyno
cell with enough cooling airflow to turn the entire cell over with fresh
air every 4 seconds as well as dedicated engine cooling, Exhausts extraction and cell extraction systems,
there is no better Dyno for your car in the UK.
