The engine is 2 litre twin cam turbo charged engine which runs unleaded fuel 97 ron (super unleaded) and even has a catalytic converter,
the lump itself is longitudinally mounted. an interesting fact the main difference between Escort Cossie and the RS2000 Mk5 is that engine in that Ford is transversely mounted. The fact the car is fitted with a CAT means the exhaust flow is restricted, therefore affecting power. A cam cover in green shows a mechanic or enthusiast the Cosworth is unleaded.
