    I can’t help but enjoy this Bluetooth discussion as both John and I sit here looking at our engines sitting on the workbench

    So true. My old Zetec SVT engine, which made more power than my just-rebuilt SVT, now has a new, high-end oil pump. Since low oil pressure was my motivation for replacing it, I might put it back in to replace the rebuilt one. Decisions, decisions, we shall see.

    Of course, that still leaves me 100+ hp shy of what others here are looking for.

    Proof the man is correct. At some point I need to start a thread on the rebuild:

    Stick the SVT back in...you know you want it. But more hp only leads to more off-road adventures. Ask me how I know this.

    I'm in for October!
    I'm still working on the new engine as our crank failed spectacularly last year. Rather than the high torque, lower rpm stroker engine we had last year we're going oversquare and high rpm this time, which is more up my alley. It'll be a 2.42L Cosworth/Duratec built by Hasselgren but we're using a 2.5L block further bored and a short stroke billet crank (shorter than the 2.3 Cosworth) so the engine should be a screamer. I'm looking forward to dyno results and testing.

    Hi John. Sounds like you are going to be social distancing from all of us on the track with that new beast of a motor. Hopefully we will all be in the mood to burn some hydrocarbons to Help get that global warming thing back on track. ��. Can’t wait. Tom

    JB: 9K RPM's? We are all looking forward to the dyno results!

    Tom: what's redline on your orange Cosworth Cat, maybe 8.5K?

    My Zetec starts to cough around 7.2K.

    ... and mine was coughing above 5k: which ended up being a dying ignition module. Whose replacement promptly died on it's second drive a month ago. Hopefully third time's the charm.
    Luckily I have until October to get this sorted (and see what fails next)
