    Ford Escort RS Cosworth!* PIC's *

    Hey guys, i was just wondering if any OTer's have any interests in this car. I have a Blue Escort Rs Cosworth, it's the early model which has the larger turbocharger and a water injection system. Does anyone else have one?

    I don't have one, but I'm really interested in them. I know this makes me a bench racer/ricer, but I buy a lot of British car magazines and have read tons of articles featuring them. I'd give my left one for a chance to drive one someday.

    I respect the RS Cosworth, but being a Subaru person I have my own favourite in the road-going rally car debate.

    Main problem I find with the Cosworth today is the number of crappy standard Escorts with the RS style bodykit. At least one near me has steel 13inch wheels, on a car with the full "whale-tail".

    My personal favourite fast-Ford would be the Mk2 RS2000, droop-snout model.

    This guy said it took him 3 years of paperwork to get his Sierra imported to Canada.

    I got a ride in that car during a local autocross event here in Vancouver. It's violently fast!! Apparently the owner has imported the TWO that exist in North America.

    Is the other one black and owned by a guy in CT? If so, I saw it at Carlisle 03. :big grin: If not, there are more than two in North America.

    :bowdown: to this thread.

    Does your RS have any water cooling on the intercooler or anything?

    The reason I ask is because the Impreza has a water tank in the boot which you can use to spray water onto the intercooler.
