definite itb's and cams to reach that power
and a remap

aim for 160bhp and you will be happy

I don't remember ever hearing about any rs1800 hitting anywhere near 200bhp in n/a form - do they exist?

im not sure tbo im new to the ford tuning in general so where could i find a ecu or would a a standard remap do? and what about throttle bodies because i have not a clue and been searching google but not much help? i know i can get a piper cross induction kit, a few different exhausts but not sure which ones the best, have sorted what coilovers im getting and have a big brake kit coming with the car just need help on manifold,decat,cams and management also will baige injectors be a good idea and i might get the engine forged if thats possible im looking into turning the rs into a really good example

good luck getting it to that power without boost, thats all i can say lol.

better off starting with a 2 litre engine rather than a 1.8

well tbo with you lads it was just a figure in my head and i already have a turbo car and im sure i can pull out a decent bhp with out converting to turbo or 2litre it wouldn't be a good example of a rs1800 if it was turbo'd or a 2litre if you see what im going for

Whack some high lift cams in it, get some ITB's, Omex management and a remap, see what the figure comes up with. Either way it'll sound epic and will be faster!

i would look at what costs of mods you are thinking at against expected power, NA 1800 or even a 2litre 170+bhp doesnt come cheap, ITB's, 285 cams, ported head, programable ECU etc

Whats the actual plan for this build? Its a bit confusing as to what you really want to get out of this car.

IF you want a big power car and moneys not an issue then Turbo is the way forward
IF It's perfect example of an RS1800 then 130hp's what you should be after but spend the time and money making it mint

I want power but the perfect example but without putting in a turbo or a different engine i rather spend a whole lot of money on a forged engine and keep it naturally aspirated

right:

Standard inlet won't see over 160bhp

so ITB's will be needed or carbs,
headwork
cams
bottom end work - rods etc
exhaust :lol:
manifold
decent management as stated

even with all that i think over 170bhp will be bloody good going

or turbo it :lol:

Jam was aiming for 230 240 na and we worked out that would cost up to 10k or so.

Omex state around 165 on a 2.0 with their itbs. Less on the 1.8. Then upwards of that your struggling after cams without building a 2.1 engine.

Get a 170 lump, fit bike bodies, aftermarket Ecu and better cams and you will see nearer 200, and cheaper.

Don't waste time chasing upwards of 160 with the 1.8 na
