Change of Engine?

Recommended Posts

Hey guy's looking for some technical Know how from the techies around here


My question is would it be possible to put an Escort Cosworth engine into a mark 5 cabriolet,? ?(


I Know that the engine is transverse instead of lateral ( I think thats the right way round) So new engine mounts would have to be designed and welded into the car and new wiring loom and all other parts uprated ( such as fuel pump ect) but is it possible? 8)


I am just thinking of ways of making my car unique If I did this I don't think I would ever look at seeling it unless forced and time isn't an issue as i can find someone willing to do it and leave the car with them while I am away and I have the money just not sure if I want to spend it. But I wouldn't half have a great show car after doing that. I've seen many different engine mods on cabs buit not this one. :devil:


So anyone got any input or even contacts I could talk to when home of course I guess I would have to have a chat with evos premier mechanic Giles fancy aking the question to him for me Lee :D

You plan on keeping transverse mounting then? :)


A cossie engine was installed in a KA.... so it's possible. :thumb:


Not sure how much ££££ it would cost to sort out sump mods though, as cornering will mean the oil moves differently to designed! :O
