    The 2l engine for the Sierra WAS the Pinto engine

    What you MIGHT ahve been interested in was the Sierra COSWORHT RS500 engine.
    Hmmm, spitting flames, barking exhaust, lots of wheelspin.

    I saw a guy trying to drift one of those at this thing me and my mate went to at Silverstone earlier this year. It was so entertaining to watch, he'd give it the flick, the back would begin to step out, then he'd try and feather the throttle, EVERY single time he tried it, you could see the turbo kick and he'd end up facing the oncoming cars. So damn funny.

    Erm... Honestly can't remember! I think it was called "Drift Challenge". I don't recall it being a massive event. We didn't stay long cos it was damn cold.

    The standard RS500 has not that many differences from the stock version. But has it was an homologation special, it had another turbo and so.

    The RS500's we've seen at races, they're another story! They're amazing!

    The '500s were still only single turbo, but a huge T34.

    Tickford parts upgrade for RS500s -
    - Stronger cylinder block.
    - Bigger T3/4 turbocharger.
    - Larger intercooler.
    - Second fuel injection rail (Extra 4 injectros were fitted, but weren't functioning in road trim).
    - improved rear suspension to lay down the power without suspension wind-up
    I think the confusion is over the 2nd injection rail.
    The RS500's we've seen at races, they're another story! They're amazing!
    In 'homologation' trim these put out 240bhp from 2l Pinto.
    In Tickford prepared RS500 rally/race trim they put out 500bhp.
    It's the latter that were the real fire-spitters that the ricers so much wannabee
    They were more succesful on track as the huge lag in the full-on versions was too severe to be usable on forest/grvel stages. But didn't stop it winning !!!

    to be more exact the road trim was pushing 224 ps (20 more than the standard RS Cosworth). The BTCC cars could push 560ps (e.g. Labatts RS500 of Andy Rouse)...

    some pics of the racers...







    Currently there are cars which push more than 700 rwhp!!!!
