"project Cosworth" - Ford Sierra Cosworth 4x4
Posted 29 June 2009 - 05:55 PM
The cossy has a bigger t34 turbo and bigger 803 injectors. I just need to swap the gearbox (one included in the sale) as it pops out of fourth. The person who i bought it from just couldnt be bothered to get it done!
So all I need is a cage to build from and the project can get underway - but i think some detailed measuring is required first!

Still deciding on whether i should see about incorporating the cosworth strut tops. I think once I get under the cossie and take some measurements i will have a better plan of what I will be able to use and what will have to be hand built (ball ache)
I seem to dwell on things that are so way off in the future, like wanting a front exit exhaust and what chip to get while in actual fact I should be focusing on suspension alignment and rear diff carriers!

Admittedly this isnt the impressive update that everyone is looking for but it still neees to be done! Once the sierra has been stripped and parts sold the cutting can commence!! Ha ha

I've got the weekend to work on it so I will be happy! Hopefully it will start again!

And surely the cossie will have a limiter, meaning it will only go so fast E.G 150 mph, and if its limited it wont go any fatser no matter what its in?! it'll just get there quicker being in a lighter car

Good luck with the spaghetti junction you got going on there. S'pose you have to do the silly little things before you can get your teth in to the bigger stuff!

Im aiming for crazy acceleration, so I am after alot of torque and power in a lightweight car! Hopefully once its finished it will fit the bill!
As for the loom, I have thinned it out abit and have three sainsburys bags full of wiring and they weight quite alot! I havent fully finished the job as I have been distracted by the thoughts of an anti lag system!

V8cos: I don't suppose you have any information about them? Pictures, blogs, or websites even, I know it's a long shot, but it would be interesting to see how they shoe horned it in and what components they retained from the mini!
