basically ive decided to drop a focus rs lump into my mk6 escort. so i need abit of advice as i need it done asap so i dnt go without a car for a shorter time as possible.

 

what engine mounts would i use to bolt the engine in?

 

im planning to use the rs2000 gearbox with rs2000 cradle an shafts hubs etc but will that gearbox work ok using the rs focus flywheel an clutch?

 

any mods needed doing to the sump to get it into the car an nt hit the floor like silvertop conversion?

 

also what options have i got fuel pump wise without running a swirlpot pot in boot? any links to direct replacement pumps for the tank? cheers

It's not a common conversion so i'd be prepared to buy a cheap runaround whilst the conversion is being done.

You'll need to modify your existing mounts to cater for a black top engine. Danzetec and some others on here have done it, have a search through.

Not necessarily. The OEM Focus RS clutch cover fouls some RS2000 bell housings. I believe a Sachs replacement Focus RS clutch will fit though, or at least I know of one instance of this setup being used with an Escort MTX75.

Don't believe so.

That'd depend on how much power you intend to make. Running two pumps with a swirl pot is the ultimate, and important if you want to do track days. If you're after standard Focus RS power, then an intank walbro type pump will probably suffice (how long it'll last though is another story), or you could run an intank Bosch pump (like an 003 or 023), but that will need some custom work doing. If it were me and I was going balls-out with it i'd run a swirl pot and a seperate high pressure inline pump, like a standard sierra cosworth pump.

 

 

 

It's certainly a lot of work to undertake a conversion like this. Don't underestimate the amount of work required to retrofit the Focus RS loom/ecu (not the route i'd go), and if you're going aftermarket management/loom then this is another large piece of work, not something you're going to turn around in a week.
