VEHICLE STORY

Merkur XR4Ti built to 1986 Ford Sierra RS Cosworth spec. I bought the car completed with a rear main seal leak, we decided to tear it apart and restore everything to its former glory as it was showing its age. During tear down we found a main bearing was worn really bad and the pistons were worn pretty badly. We bored the block, ground the crank and had my uncle do a valve job and port on the head. During this time we also sandblasted and painted all parts we took off which turned into taking more and more bits off the car until everything in the engine bay and underside was restored. Currently she runs but needs tuned as its fouling plugs up really quickly (went stage 2 setup 320-330hp) and we haven't had enough free time to get that done yet :(
