2.9 V6 24V

The motor is based on the Essex engine with Cosworth working on the heads to get the 24V in there.

In the Granny its pretty lame due to the weight of the car, may go better in something that weighs less though wink

The granada Scorpio Cosworth engine is a V6 2.9 24 valve N/A engine and run typically on an auto box smack

They are a lazy engine but very smooth. It may pull well in a lighter car but in the scorpio they dont pull well at all, not what you would expect from the Cosworth branded engine at all.....

Maybe look at getting the flywheel seriously lightened ?? Get rid of some of the smoothness and gain some free reving power ??

"The 24-Valve Cosworth engine first appeared in the Ford Granada Mk3. It met the need for a modern V6 engine while keeping tooling costs down by using the Cologne block still manufactured by Ford (and still in production for the 12V).
The engine uses quad cams driven by a single duplex chain with the four valves actuated with hydraulic tappets arranged in a pent-roof combustion chamber, with a central platinum spark plug. The new aluminium cylinder heads were made and machined by Cosworth and Mahle pistons raised the combustion ratio to 9.7 to1. The con-rods were modified, now standard for the 12V as well, while to handle the new power the crankshaft was fillet-rolled to improve stiffness and balance weights added to improve smoothness. The engine was assembled at Cosworths’ Wellingborough plant and production was planned at 7,500 engines a year. The code for this engine is BOA.

Even without using variable induction systems, the 150bhp of the 12 valve was raised to 195bhp at 4,500rpm, while the torque soared from 172 ft/lb to an impressive 203 ft/lb with standard catalyst fitted. At the time of its introduction Ford claimed that no non-turbo 3 litre could better this high torque."

How pap is that? It needs a turbo. Aint even a 200BHP monster and it calls itself a V6. Doesnt deserve the name let alone cosworth. Mondeo ST200 engine would be better
