A conversion that is fast becoming popular and with good reason why. Corey’s Ford Cortina street car now sees a Barra turbo engine fitted between the rails.
Built by Race-EFI, the BA series 1 engine is arguably the weaker of the Barra series. With just a set of valve springs and head studs as the only internal mods, with bolt-ons the combo pumps out over 580hp to the wheels.
Due to not having a current safety ticket, Corey was only able to complete a couple of test passes but we expect to see the car back soon with these items rectified.
