1996 1.8 si With full RS2000 conversion


Recommended Posts

Hi Im lookin to sell my Pepper red Escort 85k, had it for 2 years spend over 2 grand building it.

Its was a standard 1.8si when i bought it. I got bord and found a mint RS2000 engine with only 70k on it, cam chain was changed and an AP racing clutch was fitted wen the engine was put in. Its done 12k since the engine was put in.

Ive fitted jamex shocks with spax springs, RS brakes on front with Grooved and drilled discs and green stuff pads.

Rear RS disc beam with brand new bushs, new arms and bushs on the front, new engine mounts, strut brace, stainless engine cover. Full Stainless Powerflow system with decat and pipercross induction kit.

Havnt used it on the road for a few months was goin to keep it for a track car but need the money for travelling now.

It turns over but wont start becouse the fuse box has died, but can get it sorted if anyone is interested in buying it.

It would be a good project or if sumone wonts to use it a doner as all the running gear is in good condition. It was a great car to drive loads of fun and I serviced it well aswell. No Mot or tax

Does it have the RS2k box? or is it still on the IB5?


The IB5 wont fit an RS2000, its got the MTX one which is a lot stronger. The car has nothing left on that belonged to the zetec, including the master brake piston, rad fan, shafts, C.V joints, hubs, loom, ecu, subframe its all different etc, If anyone ever conciders converting to RS be aware it can be a pain in the arse to get all the right bits cus nothing the same really. Its all converted properly I did most it myself dont trust machanics they forget to do up bolts some times lol. No offence to any on here tho :innocent:


Pics coming tonite!
