Default New member saying hello

Hi guys thought i would just say hi im from the rhondda near tonypandy and i have just bought my first s2 red escort rs turbo and its got folders of history and in perfect condition with only 42000 miles on clock many years ago it had hot wax covered underneath and in engine bay etc..and only mods are scorpion exhaust, superchip, pace cooler, actuator and have print out from dyno and is running 185bhp and 192ftlb torque

my last car was a classic subaru impreza i owned for 7 years and after building the engine myself and all tunning mods done by me it was running 454 bhp and 462 ftlb torque @ 1.5 bar but sold it to pay bills off and run something cheaper as my misses is expecting my third child by christmas

i work on motorsport and classic cars for a living as im a mechanic but also i have over 16 years upholstery skills and re trim car interiors too and work for a company called old school engineering ( www.oldschoolengineering.co.uk )

will post some pics when i get a new cam and also have a few things i want to do before the shows start next year so hi once again and hope to see and speak to you all soon

Hiya!

It's not really busy in the Wales section lol

I love S2 Turbo's, you don't see many on the road these days

The Impreza must have been a proper weapon on the road with those figures!
