    Ok that makes sense, sorry to hear about it mate, so did they rip it out as soon as they picked it up " barstools ", what happened that bought it to its demise. i remember this car when it was for sale was tempted as it seemed mine was ages away from being completed.
    So your right then engine will be knackered.

    Sorry to hear about it mate, but thank god no-body was injured...It looked like a seriously fast car and on 175 tyres
    It was an omex ecu aswell, bet their eyes lit up when they recovered and saw that.

    the car was bike fast made my maserati feel like a 1.1 pop plus but ive found out cossy lumps do like dripping oil all over your drive and blowing it out when nailed. looking for one with an xe lump the massive bang from the turbo on that car was only good if in a straight line but it was quick .

    This is a real shame. I owned the 500bhp cossie mk1 which I sold to Pig, (orange one), bought it back from fridgeman with a hot pinto in and its twice the car it was with the cossie in. Drives properly like a mk1 escort should. Having had loads of rally cars, been there and done it, I honestly can't see the attraction of a turbo'd cossie in an old ford unless your into drag racing or sponsored by Pubsport !. Keep it n/a. Rant over !.

    all i can say is the car was rock solid and fantastic for what it was built for, performance unreal and because of the quality no harm to me, if not for the group 4 welding the car would be in a lot mess than it is testament to had built it.

    For someone who thinks it runs etc it still sounds quite cheap, pity the ecu and engine are damaged, a good body man could make that look great like it once was.
