old Top gear video with a ford sierra Cosworth
« on: 03:23:06 AM / 30-Nov-12 »
I was watching old top gear videos and found this. Video features a young Jeremy Clarkson Skip to 6 minutes for the ford sierra.

Yea, that's no FJ. That's the YB cosworth I think, based on the older pinto 4, not the 2.3.  I wouldn't know if it were better or worse than the FJ.

There's also cosworth heads for vega, and Benz engines, and some stuff for 4g63s but not a head. The vega I know was destroked, but by the time all the emissions were done, it was choked pretty bad.

I've never seen any flow sheets on any cosworth head, but I do see Cos Vegas here and their, my fears, resulting in my not purchasing one were from lack of pistons, cams, and aftermarket support in general.

Well shit, sorry guy's your right this is not a fj. sorry for the misinformation. I read on 2 other forums of guys claiming it was a fj. I'll fix it so it don't get spread. Cosworth did make a ton of aftermarket parts for the fj20 for group A cars.

fixed

It does look a lot like the FJ... But yea YB's cams are belt drive (FJ is chain), and the intake and exhaust are on the wrong sides.

YB = my second all time fav engine.
