[font="Calibri"][size="3"][color="#000000"]Hi All, just inherited my Dad’s Ford Sapphire 3.0iRS V6. There were only a limited number of them made in South Africa, 250 of them as far as I know.[/color][/size][/font]

[font="Calibri"][size="3"][color="#000000"]I was wondering exactly what engine is in this car and where I could get a copy of a workshop manual. I have a lot of work to do on the body but intend on turning her into a beast.[/color][/size][/font]

[font="Calibri"][size="3"][color="#000000"]Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.[/color][/size][/font]

It should be a V6 Essex engine with Fuel Injection, modified hydraulic cam shaft and high compression pistons.

In the UK we had the 3.0 engine in the early Granadas. The Sierra's had a 2.8i and a 2.9i variant of the same engine which was later fitted to the Granada. The Sapphire only had 4 cylinder engines.

Hi Bruce, thanks for the info! I have been doing some research and it would seem it is a 3.0 v6 6 cylinder engine with EFI.

I wonder if there was ever a workshop manual that was ever produced for this.

There should be one for the engine. Not sure about there being one for that particular car and engine.
