    S2000 powered Escorts

    So, now that the mods have been kind enough to set up this section, how many of us are out there with S2000-powered Escorts?

    Mine is not far from being finished, the thread for the build is here:

    Cheers,

    Paul.

    Finally making a start on mine Paul !! Put the tubular crossmember on today (thanks for the advice), but will have to get adjustable bottom arms and replace the antiroll bar with adjustable arms as the bottom arms are nowhere near lining up now with the new crossmember.

    just put a new post in resto'

    (Will post the flocked piece of dash on Monday mate)

    Thanks Kev - little things like the lower dash piece are finally becoming more important as the bigger jobs get done

    Cheers,

    It's ok, I got permission now.

    This is owned by Jonny Wigmore of London Rally School up in Bicester, where my missus went and did a rally school day there and loved it. (www.rally-school.com)

    I went to watch and caught sight of this beast in his workshop.

    Ah, thought you might be, but not seen you posted before. If I'd have known, I'd have taken advantage of the discount in your sig for my missus.

    When do you reckon it'll be up and running proper?

    The S2000 is a fine engine. What sort of power will you be expecting from the setup

    I have a S2000 Mk1 here in Canada which I entered in last years Targa Newfoundland. Here's a link to a story I did on that, and a bunch of pictures http://www.carkeys.ca/features/targa...ghlight=Escort
