Still in 1975 Cosworth Vega # 0736. Ran 2 years ago, re-cleaning carbs now. Have both Weber 42 DCOE's and the original Bendix FI system- except injectors. All reports engine is same materials as the original 260hp race engine except cam grind and compression of course. 110 hp @ 5400 in street trim. Looks like 50-60k miles; talk to me to buy the whole car for SCCA ITA class- if interested. Check the records, they run near the top of the class and handle well with factory standard rear anti-roll bar, light/balanced weight, and the 6500 rpm redline easily obtainable. Both 4spd and/or 5 spd roller- bearing trans available.
Racing origin Known at Cosworth Engineering as Project EA, a Cosworth racing engine based on the Vega aluminum block produced a reported 260 hp (190 kW) and powered Chevron and Lola race cars to wins in the 2- liter class in their first outings. The ZO9 Cosworth Vega engine is a de-tuned version. Bore, stroke and valve sizes are identical but it lacks the EA engine’s dry sump lubricating system (unnecessary in a street use car), has a lower compression ratio and different valve timing, and uses Bendix electronic fuel injection instead of Lucas mechanical injection to cope with a wider range of operating conditions as well as emission controls.
