Yet another escort turned into a cosworth! You seen the BCM kit? Alot rarer, and nicer looking than a boggo looking cosworth replica.

if you decide to do that (which i personally wouldnt) you'll have to get a lot more than the kit done to make it look like a cosworth.

try and get a ford kit rather than some aftermarket stuff because i've seen them done an they dont look like cossies at all, as well as the kit you'll have to get the interior done, cosworth dash, and somehow make it sound like a cosworth.

overall it'd be cheaper to buy a cosworth <img border="0" alt="[laff my ass off]" title="" src="graemlins/cwemotions042.gif" /> <img border="0" alt="[joking]" title="" src="graemlins/cwemotions046.gif" />

good luck if you decided to do that anyway

Some lad in the Northend had one on a black escort, on Tollymash (sp?), Road with a BCM kit on...

You can get a full Escort Cosworth for 10 000, alot cheaper than converting an Escort into one.
Even Ford didn't make an Escort into a Cosworth, the Escort Cosworth is a Ford Sierra, with a streched Escort shell on.

Why not get the cosworth kit for the fiesta? They look like mini escort cosworths...more or less...I seen a decent one a couple of years ago in blue.

The reason I was saying you mays well get a real one is...
Getting a full decent kit is going to cost over a grand, it's not just the vents, front splitter and tail, the cosworth has blistered arches, so that means you're going to have to get them fitted and sprayed...and maybe smoothed, then you've got the alloys on top of that, (and the spacers for the wheels). That's probably about 3000-4000 already, (don't forget some disk-brakes for the back wheels too, cossies didn't have drums!), then all the performance mods will be 's! I'd invest your money in your fiesta, it's already taking shape with some nice looking alloys, plus there's far more performance mods out for the fiesta.

Make a cosworth-a-like if ya wanna, but I'm fed up of racing those "special edition" 1.4 Cosworths off the lights. wink

I have to agree though the insurance on cosworths is CRAZY, I got quoted almost 3000 a year on a standard one, frig that! They're not that good, a sorted Subaru Impreza Classic can out-corner, and out-perform one for cheap as chips money, the only thing that special about the cosworths are the engines in my opinion.
