Pinto To Dohc

Les Welsher fitted a DOHC into a standard 2b Chassis. It's easier if you use the type 9 rather than the MT75.

 

Not much gain over a pinto & less tuning options unless you fit the RS2000 16v engine (which Les has just finished upgrading to....)

Just wondering if anyone has swapped a 2.0l pinto injection to dohc 8v got a whole sierra cheap with a sound engine the pinto is knackerd. Can it go on the type 9 box ? is there enough clearance around the pedal box ? will it fit height wise?

Cheers

 

 

 

 

Hi I fitted a DOHC 8Vi from the start of a new kit build, wish I had gone for a pinto, problems with pedals/servo/master cyl if you are tall 6ft+ and injection chamber pokes through bonnet, radiator/fan is also a tight fit, overall really tight fit in places and dont forget exhaust exits on lh side.

Dan I have a dohc car but with the dohc chassis the efi does stick through bonnet and in the serria it had 128 bhp so out of the donor has more go than a pinto bit no up grades other than a diffrent engine. I would go a zetac.

Hi,

Thanks for your response i,m up in derbyshire very near gbs as it goes i think i,m going to sell the engine and try and find a decent pinto it would be a lot easier by all accounts shame though as the dohc and gearbox is perfect the donor car even came with 7yrs history..... :(

you might need a serious bonnet bulge for that inlet manifold, but essentially it is the same as the cologne v6 (but with 24v heads) which has been fitted in hoods a number of times.
