1991 Escort GT/mazda tech

Recommended Posts

We have run the lemons series for several years, and trying to figure out where we sit in points for champ.  The car had the factory mazda 1.8 engine but with the updated 99 NA head for bigger valves and an aftermarket intake.  Header is stock mazda but base is opened up to an easy to replace 2 1/2 gasket.  Not for sure how these mods will affect points, so is there some one at tech that I can go aver the car with to make sure we fit into the rules?  I have seen that there is a bump in mazda points, so just wanting to avoid initial race surprises.

Welcome!

 

Can not be vague on the model, pick the most applicable...first thing you need to do is find your cars starting points value, then go to the swap points, add whatever points are applicable to your mods (cyl head and aftermarket intake) IF your header came with the CAR, it is prob no points.

 

Looks like a 91 escort is only 150points, someone else will chime in if the GT matters

+ 100 points for the head

+50 for the intake

Looks like you sit @ 300 points (of 500 with no penalty), plenty of room to make the car faster if you do not have other points items.

Header came with the head.  Looks like we will have plenty of room  for points.  Is there any issues with the cage that you know of, that would be acceptable in lemons but not champ?  We already did the full onboard fire system.  Thanks for the replies.

The cage rules are pretty basic, and were very similar when I switched from lemons to Chump. The above image is pretty much what the cage should look like. There are a few different ways to do things but it should pretty much look like that.

Man, those junk yard parts add up quick.  I got more in points than I have in cost between the head and exhaust.  Think we paid 80 or 100 for the set.  That looks like pretty much a mirror of our cage, so we should be good there.
