Anyone remember the Escort IMB05S. I think that had an SR20 and 4 speed manual in it. Still pulled 10's though.

There use to be a street regestered escort pannal van running a 250 6 with a turbo. Fully engineered he fitted it because he didn't know he couldn't then made his own rollcage took it to an approved engineer past rego first time.

He said you could only use all the power at the track due to traction problems and all built in his back yard it was some where near Brookvale if my memiory is right.( I know bad spelling)
