HSR Replica APF 215T trying to locate

Postby andy1967 » 31 May 2006, 11:47

I was involved in the building of APF 215T for sprinting and tarmac rallying and wonder if anyone knows her wearabouts.

Pintos are 1993cc. 8v and 16v 2.0L Vauxhall engines are 1998cc.

Actually Pintos are both 1993cc and 1998cc (unless I'm giving one engine the wrong name) - look at this list of sierra bits - there are 1993cc parts for earlier cars and 1998cc parts for later cars.

the sierra's also came with a 2.0 8v dohc engine, which is probably the one thats 1998cc think its the pinto block still.

Really? Well you learn something every day - I'm pretty sure the one in the Sierra was a 16v though wasn't it?

`tis true Ralph.....

At the time other Mk5 Escort were still using CVH engines because the new Zetec 16 valve engines were not introduced until 1992. Instead of using CVH , Ford chose the 'I4' 8 valve DOHC engine used in the Sierra and Scorpio as the base for the RS2000 engine. Fitted with a new Ford developed 16 valve head this engine produced 150hp. As opposite to other Ford overhead cam engines, this engine used chain driven camshafts. Tubular exhaust manifold was quite good design when compared to usual Ford cast iron manifolds.


See `Engine` bit!
