The fact is they are far better built and engineered engines.
Now dont get me wrong, the YB is a venerable old motor (and it is ...old....!!) but IMO its not in the same class as an M3 motor. Which run at 100hp/litre from the factory, naturally aspirated
Theres alot of shit in this thread, its an engine at the end of the day. YB's are awesome engines IF looked after, just like any other 4 pot turbo engine.
Several I know run over 400bhp and are totally reliable!! The thing about the YB is it comes in a saph, 3dr and a Escort, Saph being the cheapest and easiest to buy, and they get thrashed by people who don't know anything about looking after a car, There are alot of nails about, but there are also some lovely examples about, Like most performace cars.
SCS,Reyland, and MAD engines running 600+bhp and get track abuse, day in day out are reliable, and thats still on a 20+ year old engine block/head.
They are a great motor for sure.
But for me a straight 6 will always win over on a 4 pot... its all down to the sound
I'm not saying I don't love a 6 pot
So you're telling me that they never have issues with their cars then?SCS,Reyland, and MAD engines running 600+bhp and get track abuse, day in day out are reliable, and thats still on a 20+ year old engine block/head.
Totally reliable and never have a spanner put to it despite being thrashed on a track?
I personally think that's BS but don't worry, I have a contact who is very close to the Reyland crew so I shall ask him to confirm this
Reylands 700bhp Escort has had teething problems, but its never had issues on track.
Look on passionford and have a search
