SIERRA COSWORTH V6 24V 4X4

Post by rubadubtub » Fri Jul 04, 2008 12:16 am

FORD SIERRA V6 24V COSWORTH ENGINE MATED UP TO AN MT75 (4X4) GEARBOX USING A BEEFY CLUTCH
WHEN THE CAR FIRST FIRED UP TICKOVER WAS FAR SMOOTHER THAN I HAD EXPECTED (VERY SMOOTH AND STEADY)
IF YOU ARE HAVING DIFFICULTY GETTING YOUR V6 RUNNING AND IT SOUNDS LIKE SPARK TIMING, CHECK EACH PLUG IS FIRING IN THE RIGHT PLACE, THE DRAWINGS USED WERE CHECKED AND FOUND TO BE INCORRECT, EITHER THAT OR THE ENGINE IS IN THE WRONG PLACE LOL :lol:

MY FIRST EXPERIENCE IN THIS CAR WAS A RATHER QUICK ONE, VERY GOOD FOR A CALCULATED FUEL MAP, GREYHOUND CHASING A HARE WOULD DESCRIBE IT QUITE NICELY ! :yeah!:

THE LAST PIC IS A PROCHARGER WHICH SHALL BE FITTED WHEN TIME ALLOWS

Damn ........ Why didnt Ford bring this monster over here to the States. I love the Sierra body style. Can you tell me more about the drivetrain. Are these 4X4 parts available in salvage yards out there anywhere and do you know if they'd bolt into our version ??? I'd love to build a Megasquirted 5.0 version of what you have there ..........

That's hot stuff and is going to be very cool 8)
I am trying to figure out how to program my MSII for a Scorpio Cosworth V6 24V (BOA) in my Cobra replica.

Could you please post your MSQ file ?
That would help me a lot !

Cheers, Dick.

I have done similar conversion but in 2WD, only using 4X4 gearbox built onto standard 2WD mainshaft & rear housing. Mine is a BOB engine
Could you give me your MSQ data as i am waiting for my megasquirt to arrive.

thanks colin
