Brakes

Good in their day, Cosworth brakes might now feel lacking if you're used to more modern machinery. A test drive is the best way to tel if they're working properly. The pedal should feel firm yet communicative. The ABS shouldn't cut in too early and check, the dashboard warning lamp is functioning. The most likely fault you'll find is juddering through the steering wheel and brake pedal when slowing down, even with relatively low pressure. Cossies of RWD and 4x4 forms are prone to warped or...

David Mcdade Sapphire Cosworth

Although he's only recently got back into fast Fords, David was something of a pioneer 10 years ago with what, at the time, would have been a rare conversion - he was rocking a 2 lObhp ZVH in his Fiesta RS Turbo These days he's got the Sapphire he always promised himself and has plans to make it into something special. Talk of refimshing the entire undersice to concours-spec is high on his agenda along with adding poly bushes, uprated rear brakes and a heap of chrome under the bonnet Although...

Shootout

It's the fight of the front wheel drive Fords and gearbox after a late mapping session the night before, it wasn't all front wheel drives either as Harvey Gibbs also showed up in his Escort too. Luckily the weather held out although rain the night before meant that grip was in short supply. Despite the grip levels, times soon started tumbling as new records were set, and broken, throughout the day, with some surprises along the way Despite a great battle, sadly, there was no 11 second pass for...

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. I've learnt that the only way to get things done with this car is to have all the bits lined up, and just see what fits where. That's the only way to do it. So I made a call to Pete at The Performance Company and told him about the car and...

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...
