WutApex Posted April 19, 2016 Share Posted April 19, 2016 Just curious, being a Ford fan and all, how competitive (and cost prohibitive) would running a XR4Ti would be? As far as I've ever seen (or heard of in different regions), GTS is really just variants of BMWs with a couple Porsches mixed in. I thought I'd read the Mercs were expensive to run and didn't have the aftermarket support. So I figured with all the racing the Sierra did/does in Europe, that race-specific parts (and set up help) would be available for the similar Merkur. Would the 2.3 be competitive/reliable? So out of curiosity, based my quick skim of the GTS rules, it says you can use an engine "from the same manufacturing parent company as the chassis". Does this mean: A. One could use a sierra-based motor, i.e. Cossie, since it's the same chassis? (although anything labeled Cosworth would be out of my price range) B. One could use any Ford of Germany motor, which would include any Cologne variant? C. Or you could use any Ford-based motor? If so, that opens the door for some really cool engine choices! Have these been successfully run in GTS anywhere? As clarification, I wouldn't be looking at doing this for quite a while but wanted to get a feel if it's a pipe dream or reasonable venture. These cars are stupid cheap right now. Maybe I've been watching too many BTCC youtube videos........ Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
