Its a 1989 Escort RS Turbo. 2.0 ZVH conversion, stage 3 turbo, stage 3 head, big valves, piper cam and pulley etc.

It was fast, now it doesnt even move lol

It wasnt exactly cheap, and now this happens! I knew it would be high maintenance but a bottom end smashed in 2 weeks is crazy! Was only runnin 6psi of boost because the engine was recently built so was still being run in!!

Tut tut tut, you must be someone with no petrol runnin through your veins.

I totally disagree, its a classic car which doesnt make it shit, it makes it old. Just because it takes some lookin after doesnt make it shit.

Anyway, i like blowing people with this sort of attitude away at the traffic light grand prix. BMWs especially (mind you i cant do that for a couple weeks now, but thats all part of the fun)

What car are you drivin?

Haha fair play, im quite slim and i even find the recaros a bit of a tight squeeze. I dont scrape my head though!

It does have some poo features admitedly... let it warm up for 5-10 minutes before driving, let it cool for 5 minutes after, and gotta be carefull when washin it because of the bonnet risers let water onto the electrics, its loud, uncomfortable, wheels spins like fuck in the wet... so i suppose it is poo in that sense. I like it like that though really. :) And its not gonna be driven everyday

200+bhp/950kg front wheel drive is good fun though

@Rock - yeah man RS vans are cool, a guy down my road had one a while back pretty much as you described lol. Painted Imperial blue it looked the tits! :)
