Hi All

I have a 1997 Escort Cabriolet  Mk VII 1.6i 16v  Zeetec-E- EFI ( 90PK / 67KW )

Can I fit a 1995  ( MAY  10th)  1.8 XR3i  ESCORT CABRIO 1.8 16V U9  ( 102PK / 75KW ?  engine into it ?

The engine is still in the old car and is running so I will buy the whole car and  Swap it over ( changing gaskets etc while its out ),  if its possible with no major adjustments.

I can do basic work on my car  and have access to a car lift and a workshop so would like to do it myself ( with help from mechanics  if needed )

Is it a matter of old out new in ? what modifications do I need to do ? If any ?

Engine Mounts  / Gear linkage / Exhaust / Any Sensors / Drive shafts / Connections for  Coolant / Heating / Fuel / Electrical connections Etc Etc.  

I need to change the ECU  I presume ? but is the loom Etc all good ? to just plug and run  ?

Has any one done this or can you offer any advice
