maybe in some cases, though i suppose every manufacturer has crap engines in their line ups. just most fords i come across seem lower power outputs than most. though this is mainly 90's cars.

Re: my ford

There is no 1.8 Endura engine. Only a 1.8 Endura-DE which is diesel. Also, can't be a 115 as the 115 uses a plastic inlet manifold that weren't used on the mk5 Escorts.

Don't hurt me Fiat tifosi

Re: my ford

i think it looks mint. i dont care what anyone else thinks tbh

you need front fogs for the bumper, and the original red rear lights, and clean up the bodywork like that crack on the rear bumper, then its a nice cossieish rep.

personally i think it will have the 105PS engine, so 0-60 is still 9.2secs (not bad tbh).


i'd like to get a white RS2000 4x4 and stick a cossie bodykit on it. then you have cossie style and almost cossie performance with none of the cossie costs or hassle and no need for silly things like a turbo.

Re: my ford

Thats not my cup of tea personally but gotta say it looks alot better than alot of cossie rep's i have seen. Get it looking more like a standard cossie is the way i would go..

You say its your project car... So what are your plans for it?? Seems a bit silly to me to spend money on a car that in the end still won't be as cool, fast, or handle as well as the car its imitating.. Spend money on getting the UnoT tiptop would be money better spent IMO.

its not a big project, well i hope so, its just a mini project, tidy up, cambelt, brakes, do any bushes/brake pipes/welding it needs and then cover all the arches and under in underseal to just make it generally tidier, and give it a mini service obviously.

the uno is a big project! think im gonna start with doing a engine compression check and then decide if its worth the money.
