Hi guys, I have a 1.8 zetec 115ps.

I have a 2ltr throttle bodie maf sensor ect. induction kit.

 

Does anyone know what bhp ruffly and how well it will accelerate after sticking this stuff on it.

 

mondeo 136 2ltr cams.

Decat

straight through s/s exhaust system ( no middle box)

 

because at the moment it feels abit sluggish. then it gets to 4000rpm goes abit faster but still seems to take forever.

 

cheers

Not as much and well as it would if you just stuck a whole 2.0 zetec in it, which will be cheaper..

but the 2ltr cams arnt very expensive neither is the exhaust.

and to change the engine is just hassle.

you are not the first person to ask these questions.

 

you will gain nothing infact probably lose performance.

 

to get the '130 spec' from the 1.8 engine i think i am correct in saying you will need the following;

 

2 litre cams

2 litre throttle body

rs1800 ecu i think the code is MONK

a HO stamped inlet manifold

and then loom

 

without these your engine will not be running the correct management and there for be losing torque in the lower down revs for what has been described 'peak horse power which you won't notice'

 

so yes it is easier getting the 2.0 engine you can pick up for circa £200 as the manifold on its own is about £50 upwards and too the ECU and these are both hard items to come accross

 

 

Reason for edit i put manifold twice i fail at internet

For some stupid reason I have sticked the same parts in my escort (minus the 2l maf)... And I have to agree what is said about usefulness of those. The parts might have added some peak hp but it has lost loads of low end torque, making the car only way worse to drive.

 

It's a bit better after 4000rpm though.

And to remove and fit an engine into an escort you're looking at less than 16 hours (took me less than 16 hours)

 

If you have help and move quickly it can be done faster, so that is 2 8 hour stints on a weekend and you have a much better car. Worth it IMO.

is it simply plug and play with the engine? theres a few on ebay but is there a specific one?

with the parts you want to add you will loose power. The best way would be if you want 130 spec from your 1.8 is as stated use the manifold, throttle body to match the ECU you are using. Cams would need to come from the 130 spec engine (again matching set with the throttle body, maf and ECU)

 

Ditch the 2.0 throttle body, use the 1800 130 spec one instead

Bin the cams, replace with 1.8 130 cams.

 

BUT as said a 2.0 would be a much easier route imo :) Add a decent induction, full decat exhaust system and a custom remap would see you 140-145 bhp tops
