Ford 2.0L Pinto Engine

Hi,

Since I live in europe the 2.0L SOHC pinto engine much mor common than the 2.3L version and was put in many different model of car. Currently it is being used in road rally cars in the historic classes.

My question is where can I get parts for this in the US. I am looking for Valves, Forged pistons, Caqmshafts etc, High performance gaskets etc.

Regards
Tom

Check the Formula Continental (FC) forum on http://www.apexspeed.com or do a search for S-2000 Sports Racer forums. Both of those classes use the old Ford 2.0 Pinto engine.

You might consider an upgrade to the Ford Zetec 2.0 dohc engine. The bellhousing bolt pattern is almost identical to the Ford 2.0 sohc engine. John Ehrlich, a builder of aftermarket hot rod engine/driveline components, has all sorts of neat adapters for the Ford Zetec, Ford-Mazda Duratec and the GM-Olds Quad 4 engines. Here is a link to his site: http://www.quad4rods.com

Tell John "Hi" from Gerry at Kansas Engines.

...very interesting.... I did not know that....

-READ HERE- for an interesting modification to a 2.3L.

I believe -FORD RACING PARTS- still has parts for the old 1.6L and 2.0L.

Thanks for all the replies. I have been doing a bit of searching and it seems that most users of the 2.0 pinto in the US are running the engine in a very standard form. Anyone know if any racing class runs a modified pinto (Large valves, side draught carbs, Forged pintons etc.)

Regards
