I picked up the RS yesterday. Drove to Silverstone in the pop, managed about 35 to the gallon which surprised me. Got there for half 11 then swapped had din dins and headed home. Took our time, managed about 40 to the gallon (after learning not to go onto / resisting the boost) and got home about 3. Only used a bit over a quarter tank.

Then proceeded to use over half a tank going from mine to stanlow to buckers, then to stanlow and home again. smile

Im really made up with it. Its a brilliant spec and although i dont know the power it feels like more then he said, considorably. I was chasing after a tuned turbo supra yesterday (unkown spec, defo turbo though) and i was having to back off.

Heres a quick list anyway:

1600 cvh turbo.
Garrett T3 stage 1 hybrid.
-31 actuator set at 1bar.
Kent cvh 34 cam.
pace double capacity intercooler.
Big valve head.
Ported and polished.
Spax adjustables all round.
S2 discs 261mm up front, rear disc conversion with cosworth calipers and high performance pads all round.
LSD and uprated organic clutch.
Full stainless exhaust.

Itll be getting dyno'd soon to see how many powers its making and if theres any holes or dead spots but it does feel like it. Id be interested to see how much the power spikes when the turbo kicks in, its pretty vicious.

Short term plans are to carpet it leaving the rear seats out. Fit original doorcards and front stereo stuff, no silly speakers for me. Then a good service etc and a good tidy up. Boost controller and turbo timer. Long term is a big front mount and injectors and some form of hybrid T34 or something along those lines then ill get anti-lag and launch control. Knowing me though itll be gone in 6 months for something else.

Pictures too.

Looks in good nick. Not a fan of escorts from mk III onward tho to be honest, and I feel like I must be the only one. I liked the Ford Super Escort MkIII thing they tried to introduce into rallying, but that backfired, as the Audi Quattro with its 4wd dominated....rendering the escort pointless.

Cheers guys. Might be at the rock tonight if anyone wants to say hello.

Those RS1700's where mad. 1700 BDG Turbo i think. Capable of 600bhp plus, same as the RS200 engine.

I wasnt really a fan of mk3's myself but when i saw them at shows and such i started to warm to them, and when i saw an RS1600i a while ago i turned. Ive always been a big fan of RS Turbo's anyway, just never thought id be able to afford one until i was about 30.
