Alan Lam­bert’s Mk2 Cortina Fea­tured: Novem­ber 2015

Classic Ford - - CLASSIC FORD AWARDS -

Drop­ping aV8 into a clas­sic Ford can be a chal­lenge, but in­stalling the twin-turbo unit from a Lo­tus Elite is some­thing else en­tirely.Yet, us­ing all his skills and ex­pe­ri­ence, Alan pulled the con­ver­sion off with aplomb, rerout­ing pipework to avoid cut­ting the in­ner wings, and even man­ag­ing to re­tain the stan­dard heater plenum and big-header ra­di­a­tor (ac­tu­ally one of three — the main one is in the boot).The re­sult­ing con­ver­sion is so neat and so good, we’re not sure even Ford could have pulled it off.
