How to Power Tune Ford SOHG Pinto & Sierra Cosworth DOHC Engines: For Road & Track (SpeedPro Series)
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 Hammill 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.
The book also covers Cosworth versions of Pinto engines and fitting Cosworth heads to Pinto blocks. (It does not cover 1300, E-Max 1600 or American-built 2300.)
Hailing originally from New Zealand, Des Hammill is a professional engineer with many years of practical experience of building race-winning engines and solving technical problems. The author of several books in the SpeedPro series, Des writes in an easy to understand manner and gives step-by-step guidance. Des also takes his own photographs and creates his own line drawings.
