Re: 1980 MK 2 Escort - 4 Door
That makes it more impressive being a fully loaded Escort.
A friend of mine done a TE Cortina back in the late 90s, back then there was no barra motors . He used a falcon alloy head 11 from the last xf efi and ran it on a 9kg gas bottle with an injecting mixer thing with xr8 TB, a supercharger from a diesel roller, he was running low 9s in basically a road car except the back doors were welded up and blended in.
1 thing he found out is with so much torque, the rear swing arm bushes die real quick causing him to crab down the strip. He was lining at the start line at nearly 45deg to allow for the twist in the suspension ! , so the rear will need attention if your going for big grunt. You prolly know how bad they are anyway in factory spec !
Hope you post a build thread when it happens 👍
