Build a reliable, high-performance 1600/1800/2000 ‘Pinto’ engine for road/track, using many stock parts. Covers Cosworth versions of Pinto engines, too, and fitting Cosworth cylinder heads to Pinto blocks.


Expert practical advice from an experienced race engine builder on how to build a high-performance version of Ford's naturally aspirated 4-cylinder 1600, 1800 & 2000cc Pinto engine which has been used in Ford's most popular cars (Escort, Capri, Cortina & Sierra - Ford/Mercury Capri, Pinto, Bobcat in USA) over many years. Whether the reader wants a fast road car or to go racing, Des explains, without using technical jargon, just how to build a reliable high-power engine using as many stock parts as possible and without wasting money on parts and modifications that don't work.

Also covers Cosworth versions of Pinto engines and fitting Cosworth heads to Pinto blocks. Does not cover 1300, E-Max 1600 or American-built 2300.
