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
