do you want the engine screaming at 3-4000rpm doing 70-80 on the motorway? i'd rather not plus it would be ecomonic to have longer gear ratios saves on fuel!

 

close ratio boxes i think are better for racing and rallying!

 

 

Er.. hello.. ST170 is 6 speed..

i know its 6 speed! but i have read in fast ford a couple of times especially in recent issues that its pointless putting one in an escort unless it REALLY needs it like i dunno if you have 2-300bhp! plus the fact that theres custom mounts, welding etc

 

put it this way putting an st170 box in would cost more than putting that turbo engine in your car kris if done by a pro.

 

some people have done it in fiesta mk3's because its easy to do in them!

 

i would go for a fully uprated ib5 box with LSD kris

 

having 6 gears in an escort would be brilliant but for the cost of getting the parts and getting it fitted would just literally kill your wallet!

It does use a hydraulic clutch, I'm sure it uses a cable for the gear selector too. Not 100% sure on that though.

 

SortedFord has a clean St170 box he may sell...
