About this project

This project has been inspired by the fire breathing big BHP Group B rally cars that were banned in the mid 1980's. With a love for these cars in mind I'm creating a mid engine RWD track day car using a MK6 Escort as the base car and a Subaru Impreza turbo engine/gearbox to power it.

With the Subaru engine being quite light and having a low centre of gravity, (due to the flat 4 configuration) the car should have a good power to weight ratio and hopefully handle well, with a good suspension setup.

Subaru Powered Peugeot 205 T16 style Project.

Ok so my new project has started, i have got a subaru  impreza wrx sti version 4 that i am stripping down at the moment, the new car is going to be a peugeot 205 with a front mounted subaru  engine and the 4wd system with a full roll cage,rear mounted radiator, battery, fuel  tank etc to balance the car out and a t16 style body kit to suit the wider track of the impreza. I am hoping for the car to weigh no more than a ton, with plenty of power and a shorter wheelbase it should be seriously fun to drive.

Side scoops

I have managed to get hold of some original metro 6r4 side air scoops which actually fitted perfect, they should allow lots of air into the engine bay and into the air filter.

The front splitter is now taking shape and bolted solid to the front cross member, i will probably cover it in some carbon look sheet.
