Cosworth Worked Their Magic With The Ford Sierra RS500 Engine

The YBD engine utilized in the Ford Sierra RS500 Cosworth shone brightly since it was created specifically for this function. It featured various improvements and was based on the

YBB motor from the RS Cosworth. To withstand additional power, Cosworth reinforced the engine block (which was particularly relevant in race models). Special oil-cooled pistons kept

temperatures under control, while improved fuel, oil, and water pumps made sure fluids reached where they required to go swiftly. They added a new secondary fuel rail, a larger

turbocharger and intercooler, and a new ECU tune to maximise the benefits of the changes.The 2.0-liter engine in the automobiles had a five-speed manual transmission and

produced 224 horsepower and 203 lb-ft of torque (with a limited-slip differential). The 2,660-pound weight of the RS500 "Cossie" allowed it all to sprint from 0 to 60 mph in less than 6 seconds and attain a top speed of 153 mph.
