Well after finally getting rid of the fiesta on saturday i came home to buy this Red Escort RS Turbo!

Its my mates old one and the engine is sweet at a nut, but it does need a rear arch and bootlid to clean it up a bit!

Anyways been looking for one for ages i can restore and strip down and re-build for concorce competitions and basically to keep me occupied through the week!

here's a few pic's of when i picked it up this morning and a few after ten min's of ownership! gonna keep this thread upto date as much a possible so stay tuned!!


mods are simple, a Magnex s/steel cat back system, K&N filter and a baileys dump valve!!
External mods are koni adjustable shocks and spring set up!
New alloys are rare as
DeCorsa alloys that i bought from a guy in middlesbourgh at the weekend!!

OMG the biggest money pit in the world S2 Rst

I built a crazy spec one a few years back by the time it was finished I had done well over 20k+











@ 18 PSI it was making 305bhp Spec was built for 30psi but i never had the balls to go that fast in it

thing scared me to death

this is my 5th RS Turbo so i kinda know what im doing with them! my first one was just over 10years ago! (one of which was a 250bhp RS Turbo VAN!!!


Gonna start stripping it down to the bare shell over Xmas and get everything done right! engine is perfect and its NOT going to be modified any more than it already is!

oh and Allan by the way its not a different set of alloys on both sides............ i changed the wheels as soon as i got it back to my lock up!

Lovely! Id love another RST to play with too! My old black S2 had a 1900 longblock engine with big valves ported head and a hybrid turbo! Made the ST feel tame in comparison and that was only running about 1bar coz the original injection system couldnt keep up! Cant wait to see how yours ends up! Ive still got a set of original RST wheels by the way if anyones interested!
