Over the last few years we've seen a bit of everything grace...

Pipe Dreams

Aluminium and silicone boost hoses, which would allow me to do just that. Whilst looking at the boost pipe issue it also dawned on me that I would need a pair of air filters too. And without them to hand I would have no idea of how, or where they would fit.

February 2011 Fast Ford

A much stronger second run saw him briefly set a new UK record for front wheel drive Fords with a 12.2 and a blistering 0-101mph in 8.3 seconds recorded at the 1 8 mile mark. Then the slicks were fitted, which is where it all went wrong, as the new clutch promptly died after a tyre warming burnout. It's clearly an awesome, massively capable car, but that 11 second pass will have to wait just a bit little longer. Zetec Turbo, straight cut 6-speed, GT30, 470bhp.

Engine

The heart of a Cosworth is its magnificent powerplant. And although the YB wasn't really designed to be a mega mile-muncher, a sympathetic owner and regular servicing let it cope remarkably well. By now, expect most but the lowest mileage cars to have had an engine rebuild Even so, don't assume recent work to be a bill of health - big power reduces life expectancy, and there's still lots that could go wrong. From start-up, check for blue smoke from the exhaust, which will probably be down to...
