Good to hear, Al. Mk2 doesn't normally beat Mk1s so must be a good one! Guess mine will be a bit heavier as shell is strengthened with possible Tour Britannia or tarmac rallying in mind. Even has mounts for sumpguard just in case! Engine hopefully courtesy of a builder used to preparing Pintos for CTCRC Gp1 with 44idfs, which I think your regs still require?

If you get a chance have a look at the Clarkson Christmas DVD Italian Job as there is a great shot of the championship winner giving the RS2000 large at Lydden, Clarkson even comments that its like an episode from the Sweeny up the front! They are a very competitive car in the CTCRC championships you wont be disappointed. Carb regs for Group 1 CTCRC state that the same number of chokes as the homologated set up but dont have to be the same carbs hence the RS2000 can use a pair of sidedraughts where as a Mk 1 to run in the earlier Post Historics has to use a pair of downdraughts but can use sidedraughts if he only wants to compete in Gp1 which some opt to do.

Thanks Al for clarifying the carb requirement differences. Side drafts are cheaper and give a bit more oomph so tempting!

Depends on the cost of the sleeving work Al. Its a complete and running engine other than a small crack in one cylinder. I'd have to pay around 300 for another unknown block so until I get it to the machine shop who knows!

I have heard that before about AppK blocks but thats on 289's whearas I'm using 302's but I have no idea where the welding is done. But then they re-engineer so much anyway!! 16K for a 380/400hp engine - crazy.

I'd assume Iain your nailing a pinto together for the Escort.

I've got an old DD F3 head to restore here and hopefully start making some new ones from my Anglia casting stash
Yes HRSR regs

What you got then? I'm looking for a steel xflow crank 65-68mm stroke?
