my BEAST it a scarey car to drive

Post by 3.2 turbo capri »

well lets start
it was featured in fast ford in 1995 , rolling roaded at that time at 236bhp at wheels hence approx 300bhp at fly wheel ........
there are receipts in the car totally 22k sterling between 94/95 i have owned the car 3 years now bought from bournemouth , off ebay lol

this is my 15th capri , full leather interior {2.8 half leathers with center section now leather } walnut dash from drivers door to passenger door , lhd passenger door so mirror adjustable from inside , electric windows {goldplated switchs holder } central locking , with newer ford key for doors , and full leather dash too , tickford like !!!

now the engine , gets extreme here , firstly the block is standard 2.8 V6 but ringed block , 2.9 crank , race pistons , shortened conrods , stage 3 heads , unleaded ones too ............. lots off other stuff done inside off it too
running a F16 conversion done in 1987 on 1985 car so was 230 bhp ..... currently running stage 3 T3 turbo , and also dump valve , boost controller {currently manual, but going electronic }also bigger and better intercooler as also may be running higher boost and maybe water injection too , lots off thoughts and finding out what i need to do , as twin turbo looks on the cards ....................
gearbox is a mix off 2 others , and is geared for 185 mph , as no limiter on the engine , 162mph at normal limiter which i have seen , speedo is 180mph one ..........................
suspension is fully adjustable front and rear , coilovers on front and 330 brakes with quad pots , rear is 21 point adjustable , double X location kit , rear discs , decambered single leaf spring .........................

also running 7X 15 competives CXs which sit lovely up in the arches , gerenally sitting very low car {too low for irish roads lol}

this is my BEAST , i have some nice plans for it as this is my car now also its dark blue over silver colour , not sure how to put pics on this forum yet

300 bhp {approx} 185 mph and road legal enough said

I'd love to see some pictures of 330 discs in 15" wheels.

Think we might be a bit confused about a few things?
Just some of what we do
