The exterior of this RS turbo is
magnificent and unique in its true factory unspoilt condition. The
original and unrestored finish to the Diamond White (code B3) paintwork is
exceptional with a brilliant bright and pure shine. There is a small area
on the lower corner of the driver's door where the paint is slightly
chipped, barely visible. Due to fastidious event preparation and polishing
there are two tiny areas where the paint has thinned, the tip of the
passenger front wing and the lower section of the rear wheel arch
extension. These must be considered as only very minor and localised
imperfections which in no way detract from the overall outstanding
condition of this car. All the factory fit panels are intact and perfect,
and all exterior trim is in excellent order as is the glass, lights, decals
and badges. An extraordinary opportunity to own a slice of Ford RS
history, simply superb.
The interior of this RS turbo is perfect
and pristine. Finished in original two-tone grey Monza crushed velour
(code HC), the seat pads and bolsters are beautiful and show no sign of
wear. The door cards and carpets are in remarkable, factory fresh
condition. The original perforated headlining is tight and free from marks
and discolouration. The dashboard has remained completely free from
cracks, an otherwise common issue with MK3 Escorts. The RS 3 spoke
steering wheel still has all the delicate grains and veins. All interior
equipment is functional and the trim pieces intact, including the
immaculate rear parcel shelf. There are some minor scuff marks to the
centre console around the handbrake and gear lever. The original factory
Ford radio cassette remains in the car. A fastidious preserved 1980's
Ford RS interior.

servo assistance and 240mm ventilated discs up front and 203.2mm rear drums
bring the car to an assuring halt.

handbooks, service books and even Ford optional extras literature held

preserved, unmolested example of a truly legendary Ford icon, exactly how
the manufacturer intended.

Porsche 924S Thrush exhaust project
87 Porsche 924S 2.5L
Tried a Thrush welded muffler to see how it sounded. It was pretty good
but a little too loud and raspy. I got a thrush glasspack to add in as a
pre-muffler hoping that would quiet it down a bit and it just sounded
terrible...even louder and really raw and ricer. Not too bad when paired
with the stock muffler but that rasp is still there and kind of nasty. It
has since diminished a bit after being run in. Running a Lindsey 944MAX
chip, hence the 7000 rpm shift points. I don't run it that high all the
time as the stock valvetrain doesn't keep up with it that well past
~6700-6800, but it does make useable power up there over the stock tuning,
esp with an open Exhaust. I don't
know where I'll take it from here...maybe a Flowmaster 60 would sound
better and I may have to pair it up with a high flow cat to block out some
of the rasp and be somewhat emissions legal while still agreeing with the
chip tuning. The flowmaster style baffling definitely has the potential to
sound awesome on this motor...but it's a 2.5L inline 4 cyl and makes alot
of sound to quiet down. I used all stock piping with the old muffler cut
off and the 2 1/4" Thrush fitted in place. The stock pipe size is metric,
~2 1/8". The inner tube of the resonator was actually 2".
