are you on the mk1 fiesta forum?

i have a mk1 xr2, janspeed turbo converted (on original crossflow engine) 74k...in red


that sounds fun! my first car was a mk1 xr2, me and my mate bought it to thrash around his farm, then passed our tests and had mk2 xr2's. i 'm a german car fan but those little fords were more fun than my golf gti's i had after them!

I'll admit it, I'm a car nerd :)

What sort of power is a turbo crossflow putting out? I know of one all steel race engine in a Caterham that peaks at 186 bhp but that is at over 8500rpm :o

I know that that Janspeed conversion was factory done from new, its not a later bolt-on jobbie, so power output is not massive but enough!
