Ford Escort YB Cosworth
This Escorts original YB engine was developed by JEMS to produce a staggering 1092bhp and can complete a drag strip ¼ mile in a little over 9 seconds. With an exhaust system that exits through the front wing this is a pure competition car which is run in Cyprus.
The car owner came to JEMS for the engines top-end. The ability to build high revving engines was required to deliver this much power from a YB engine. JEMS are currently developing the sister engine to this monster YB.
