You'd need to get it legalized here... I really don't think it'd pass emissions or testing, even for an older car like it is.
hmmmm that'd be a toughie...... almost like what they did to the minis in the italian job, only, the EXACT OPPOSITE haha

Thats no rally car. It still has the stock interior, including back seat. Stock 1.6 CVH with a fart can welded on to the stock exshaust. The motor does'nt look modifed in any way, no BOV added, no FMIC.
Jeff, I thought you knew your cars, but I guess I assumed wrong...that fart cannon adds anywhere from 50-70hp, the wing would be probably 15, then don't get me started on the hood vents...this car is probably closer to 300hp....HAHA..............no. :lol: :lol: :wink:

Looks like somebody tried to screw somebody else over...

It does say 2.0L which I didn't think was available in 88 even in the UK.

Maybe it was an RS model? ;)

Yes, it is a RS Turbo. But under the hood it looks very stock. That generation only had a 1.6 avalible from the factory.

It has a small T3 and a side mount intercooler stock. I belive there around 130-140 hp stock.

Q: Hi there, I hate to tell you this, but that is not a Cosworth engined RS. That is in fact the standard turbocharged CVH engine you have in the car. Tis...more answered on: Nov-26-04
