    You should have dropped a cossie 2ltr in there. Easyer power and cheaper in the long run. But not a bad bit of gear you have there. It is a bit diffrent. Good luck with it hope all goes well.

    yeah, it hasnt made 400rwhp, but thats what im aiming for...

    and yeah cossie would have beena good option, but at the start, was only going to be a qucik little streeter, and then one thing leads to another.

    im going to end up putting a cossie head on this motor after i run the time that i want with the pinto =]

    nice little engine mate, but i think you should have got a twin turbo v8, but its your choice. good luck with getting on running a 10sec pass.

    Should be awesome when it's finished! . . . and 400rwhp out of a pinto should be possible, just look at Brian Munro's Escort from way back in the day!!!


    Are they M/T drag radials in the 3rd pic? If so, what size? . . . . . and it's facing the wrong way LOL
