Hi, remember that you have an Essex 3 L V6, Nobby is talking about the German Cologne V6, 2,8, which the americans stroked up to 4 litres. So they are 2 completely different engines.
The 3 L V6 Essex has been bored up to 3,4L and it takes a better new crankshaft.
There are a lot of specs in Wikipedia, look up under " Ford Essex V6 engine ( UK )".
Also look up " Ford Cologne V6 " engine, as there is a 4 L version, with SOHC which gives 210bhp.
This engine was used in the Ford Ranger and Mazda B4000, but you will have to check if it is the OHC version, 160bhp.
You could keep the Essex, put in fuel injection, and get 157 bhp.
The Essex X-ocet version was created by Simpson Ford, used a Holley carb, aggressive camshaft and tuned exhaust, 0-100kms 8.5 seconds, top speed 195 kmh in a Cortina.
Another engine option might be the Falcon I6 4,0 L, 211bhp, or XR6 234bhp ( 1994 - 1998 ).
And Granadas MK1 build by Basil Green Motors used the 302 Windsor V8, with 252 bhp.
I could have sworn I saw them advertise Coupes with 6,6 L V 8's in the end?
Ford themselves put the same engine in the Sierra V8.
As they say in the classics,
