“If you own a Ford Sierra Cosworth and dont want any...”

Written on: 22/03/2006 by lou88 (1 review written)

If you own a Ford Sierra Cosworth and dont want any hassle, get the engine rebuilt, new parts everything and take care of her. Because for some there will always be the cosworth. My boyfriends building the engine up from scratch and bringing her up to 500bhp. Should be some car when its finished. That's fully resprayed, chrome, coloured pipes the lot. I hope to get a picture up when its done. It has given him a lot of bother leaking oil and parts going, so we are just going to start from… Read Full Review

Written on: 31/10/2003 by plater (3 reviews written)

I have owned a 4x4 Ford Sierra Cosworth for going on 4 years now, originally bought as a summer toy i never intended to keep it long ,however once behind the wheel i fell in love, and so four years on the car is still with me and i cant see me ever selling it. In fact for the first year i ran the car daily as my only runaround, fuel costs were quite high (22-30 MPG) but reliability was never an issue, show me another 12 year old car you can buy for less than £5000 , that will hit 150 mph… Read Full Review

Not much info about the car. I own one, and am modifying it at the moment. I would like to see a bit more info about cars and car owners.

I've had mine 11 years and always turned it off as soon as I've stopped. Original turbo still going. It's remapped, bigger injectors, filter, more boost etc. Its run very well for years. From what i know, the turbo will only pack in if it is run at high revs 4500-7000 for very long periods, as in racing. You must only use fully synthetic and leave it to run for 5-10 mins after racing. Fully synth can handle the excess heat better and will still be in top quality when you next use your car.

Sorry bud, but i have to disagree with your comment about letting cossies tickover when cold, you should start them up and drive them straight away, keep the revs below 3000 until the oil has heated up (generally speaking this should take 15 minutes) then you can drive it as ford intended- Hard, just remember it's a turbo car so when your finished playing don't turn off the engine straight away, let the car tickover at rest for 5/10 minutes to let the oil cool the turbo internals, otherwise oil will carbonise inside the turbo and seriously reduce its lifespan.

Apart from the drab grey interior and cloth there is not much to comment on the bad points of this legendary model. Yes you have to tick the engine over for a while in the morning not to slowly damage it by running it hard at the sub-optimal temperature but these are small matters that can be dealt with. Just get a leather trim fitted and well a Stage 3 conversion will help no end. ;)

The 2.0 L Cosworth engine is not generally bored but stroked to 2.4L to maintain the integrity of the block (F1 pistons and rods are added with a new solid billet crank running a T4 Garret Turbo). I owned both a 2.4L Sierra and Escort in the UK before I came to Australia. Expensive engine job - ground up 'blueprint' rebuild. Amazing cars - 0-60mph under 4sec and the increments 50 to 70mph and 70 to 90mph dispatched under 2 sec. If you had no problems with the Ford badge you had super car performance to toy with.

Scoobz's Response to 27803_JJ.'s Review

Written on: 24/01/2005

I drive a 215bhp (~230lb/ft torque) 1100kg hatchback, which is pretty sharp in the acceleration stakes although I wouldn't call it 'fast'. I'll happily outrun a Boxster (not S), Impreza WRX (not STi) and other quick cars so imagine my surprise when I saw the front end of a Sierra coming towards my rear end at a very rapid speed... !!
<br>I dropped a gear (at 65mph down into 3rd) and gunned it, which in most cases would have pulled away from many cars or at least held the gap. This 'Sierra' pulled up to my bumper and then dropped a gear and disappeared as if I was stationary.
<br>I then noticed it wasn't a "chav'd-up" basic Sierra but a modified RS500 Cossie... !! Having then looked at the figures, this thing (with the mods) will be running around 400bhp.
<br>
<br>It did make me feel somewhat better as I was a little concerned to start with that I had a fault on my car.
<br>I was VERY impressed with the performance of a 'Classic' vehicle, the good old 'Cossie' remains an awesome beast out on the roads.. !!

Why the 18in alloys and huge exhausts have you taken it on the track and found it needs the huge wheels?
<br>
<br>Its funny really everytime i go up on a track day everyone spends more time looking at my dads entirely standard looking 2wd sapphire cosworth its got 300bhp and 300lbs/ft torque.
<br>
<br>the engine bay doesn't even have any chrome or plastic covers of any kind and because of this looks a lot meaner it looks like it wants to be used!!
<br>
<br>as for big exhausts it has a pretty ordinary looking 3inch full stainless system.
<br>
<br>My dad runs it with lower boost as its quite capable of more than 300bhp but whats the point you just end up spending more money as the engine runs out quicker!
<br>
<br>I've driven it round castle combe and it goes lovely, the engine has been modded to be almost bullet proof and the handling sorted to the point that most people ask if its 4x4.
<br>
<br>when i was a kid i would have rather had a cosworth than any porsche or ferrari and i still would now! the sierra cosworth is a working mans toy not a car for ken to pick barbie up in!!!

2.4 Litre motor?? What type of car did you say?
<br>A Genuine Cosworth Sierra RS500 has a 2.0 litre DOHC turbo engine with red rocker covers bearing the cosworth brand. With a bit more boost and fuel this motor is capable of producing 400+BHP EASILY.
Will b interested to hear what u say.
