Engine/Chassis work 2007/2008
Jon's Cortina is now finished, he's already started clocking up the road miles, and within 8 full passes has gone 8.75 at 163mph, this is a ture street car, no roller cams here just a hyd flat tappet (motorhome cam) with .560 lift and of course FAST fuel injection and "the right tune"

I have cut out the rest of the car and redone most of the cage and fitted a JS 4 link and wish bone rear suspension a long with a Ford 9" axle with 15x15 center lines.
The tubs I fit are made in house and are not flat packed one size fits all imports

I first started work on this Mk 5 Cortina in the middle of October 2002, The starting brief was to tube out the front end set the 460 ci big block Ford 22" back, fit a 8v/71 GMC supercharger ,modify the intake manifold and install 89lbs/hr injectors to go with the F.A.S.T fully mapable E.C.U, All this and the car had to look standard, I think you will agree it has turned out quite well, and from start to finish was 11 weeks.
