Default escort rs turbo tuning

hi i have just bought a new engine for my escort. im wanting to know what sort of power i can expect.

the engine was built by jamsport in 2007 with reciepts

full bottom end rebuild
new head cylinder
piper t2 cam
upgraded clutch
chipped by jamsport
ported and polished.

i have since had the engine stripped and checked, full set of gaskets fitted including head gasket new head bolts, new ht leads, new thermostat, new fuel filter, new timing belt, new lifters and oil seals in head. running standard turbo, dump valve, full scorpion exhaust, if i get it mapped and turn up the boost what sort of bhp could i get out of it?

cheers
Neil

Not a chance of getting anywhere near 220bhp on a stock T3.
With that spec on MFI (as you dont say otherwise) 180-190 genuine bhp @ fly if you have a good intercooler?
If your EFI then might get a fraction closer to 200bhp but not much

do you still have the little red pipes going from metering unit to injectors?

i would fit better intercooler first before upgrading turbo

yes little red pipes are there, take it shes mfi then?

how much can you get a decent 2nd hand intercooler for and are they hard to fit? money is tight after buying/ fitting the engine

is efi really worth changing to? is it a big job?

cheers
Neil

grs go for any where between 120-220 second hand or 280 new posted.

efi is the was forward but i would say get used to the mfi first enjoy the car before convertin lol


Oh just to add the coolers are easy to fit just bumper off and bolt it on, as for converting the efi it depends what you go for ... omex,cossie,ofab, thats only to name a few.

A GENUINE 180/190 feels pretty nippy in an old escort IMO. Obviously depends what you're used to though

both about 190 i think, just think it would be great to see an old escort blow them away as i think they are secretly laughing at me even thinking its possible, they no nothing about the rst.

gotta think power to weight ratio as well mate if you want a fast rst you can always put it on a diet lol get stripping.

yeah mines cossie managed um the cossie conversion starts at around 1350 i think thats with a converted cossie loom and l6 ecu blue injectors still a good system tho as most will agree, The main problem you have with mfi is the fueling so whilst you can get good power it can be unreliable and the last thing you want the to be blowing your mates cars away then be blowing your engine up ha ha

get on oddkiddcreations.co.uk mate thats janos forum everything you need to know about cossie management and there all top lads on there

cheers for the comment on the car, post some pics of yours up

I recon you prob got more around 160bhp at wheels. get a big intercooler and uprated turbo and then get it set up by a pro... You got preety much same set up as me apart from cooler and ally rad mine is about that with 10psi.

Always intercoolers in for sale adds. you cnt get a second hand pace double capacity for about 70 posted

As I think if you want to start hitting the 200+ mark you wanna start saving some pennies. remember these are any 135bhp aprox stadard but in there prime that was pretty nippy.

What PSi is the turbo pushing?

My 328i is about as fast as a civic type r (not the newest shape). And my rst with a genuine 185brake at the crank was a fair bit quicker than my 328i.

The escort did a 14.4 sec 1/4 mile and a 2004 civic type r does it in 15.2.... so yep it will be faster.

Rob,

i mate i must keep en eye out for a good 2nd hand cooler

not sure what psi the turbo is pushing at the minute, the car is a bout 20 miles from me gettin some welding done, handbrake cables, brake pads and discs and ready for mot. since buying th car i have been bitten with the ford bug! dying to get her finished and on the road!
