Position of the actuator suggests its a Cossie T3, but the pictures are a bit unclear - does it have any A/R .?? Stamps on the housings?

Thinking about it, its not a Cossie turbo think

Cossies are top mount meaning the dump pipe faces the same way as the flange to the manifold - they go in different directions on that turbo.

Need more info mate.

Am trying to get more pics and the A/R stamp code - I thought it was a Escort T3 rather than cossie.

Lets see what I can dig up tho

Could be an RS Turbo T3, but not Escort Cossie T3

If its the RS Turbo T3 they aint really up to much frown Very small in terms of T3s so they cant produce high power output and more laggy than the T25's on the fezzys.

One word ........... Scrabble tease

Well I looked on eBay and found that its not a Cosworth or Escort turbo frown The flanges are in different places so that kind of puts a downer on my plans but I always keep a back up plan wink

Right, this is getting on my nerves now as that pic is soooo bad. I think it is an escort t3 now as the flanges are in the right places (s2 not s1). Also that pic looks like the turbo is proped up with a metal bar which thrown me abit.

Can anyone else help?

Its not on eBay no. I know a lad that has it, and this is the only pic he has given me - I have asked for more with different angles etc but he keeps forgetting :@

Thing is, if its what I want I'll have it so its his loss

Right, am nearly 100% sure its an Escort turbo as everything is perfectly matched - I could have came to this decision sooner if I had a better pic :rolleyes:

Congrats on 4300 posts exactly tease

I know CVH turbo engines can produce good bhp gains but they are still only 8v and upto 400cc less - never mind the torwue difference.

There are many many differences between the two engines but the zetec will take more, heres a typical example: FRST conrods good for say 230/250bhp, Zetec conrods good for 450bhp.

Its more model technoligy but alot more advantages over the old CVH, dont get me wrong its great and all but I think zetec turbo wins the battle.

The american tallblock 1.9 engines are of short supply, and even then that doesnt give the full 2000cc's against its predicessor
