    Default Escort RS Turbo - Series 2 90's spec.

    So this afternoon I gavea good service and cam belt change to the above..

    Had a Series 2 RST myself for a good few years - bought it standard and when I finished was running a Power Engineering Blueprint tune @ 220BHP...

    Doing the car today (which is MINT) makes we want another one..

    SERIOUSLY - I want one again

    Great great great cars

    They were nice, If I were ever look at buying one again it'd be a series 1 turbo, or an RS1600i..

    I have also been having a serious think about looking at maybe buying a mint RS500 as an investment, only thing is, i've got nowhere to store properly..

    A good Series 1 will now fetch some really good money Pete... I turned down a series 1 when I bought my series 2 as there was so much rust in it.

    Cosworth RS500... Awsome.. Guy local to me has one tucked up on a garage and it only ever comes out when there is zero chance of rain (not been out this year )

    we bought it already tuned up to that , its not a zvh conversion still a cvh . its had the cams , pistons done bigger turbo , uprated head gasket in other words alot lol with all receipts and printouts to prove . the bodywork is mint and original and has the original dates stamped on the wings (rare) - its the rot underneath thats being done , floorpans front , sills , and battery tray . labour of love lol.
