Vinnyvangough's Escort Rs2000

Recommended Posts

Hey guys.

Well after doing a lot of work to my Mk3 Cabby, i got offered this 2WD Escort Mk6 RS2000 for a good price.

Couldn't say no.

Picked it up in early March and on April 1st, attended Jamsport with www.forescortclub.co.uk for a rolling road day.

Car is totally standard apart from a drilled air box with a K&N panel filter.

She made 149bhp and 144lb/ft torque. Not bad for a 15 year old car, only lost 1bhp.

I'll let you look at the pictures. Still a couple things to do, to her, such as small amount of rust on the boot and rear arch, front jacking point cover and new front bumper.





I have now changed the alloys for another set of RS2000 wheels which were in better condition. Next step on the list of things to do is a de-cat pipe to try to free up the flow of gases.

Oh yea she is, had a full background check on her via Ford and the RSOC so i know she's good, and pretty original. Also know the previous 2 owners and know of the owner before that.

Came with a folder FULL of the history too.

Less than 100 of these in this colour left on the road now too.

Its on 118,000 at the mo.

A de-CAT pipe replaces the Cataylic converter in the exhaust system. This help the gases escape through the exhaust easier and faster giving it a small increase in power and torque. Its technically illegal to have one as exhaust emissions are a little higher but if you keep the original CAT and re-fit for MOT, nobody really notices.

Bit of an update guys.

Got some new drilled and grooved discs and some EBC pads today and fitted them and changed all the brake fluid.

Some pictures
