Had a Change of Heart

Went to pick up my new car "escort estate" was promist it by a friend of a friend 2 months ago, anyway when i get to there top pick it up its a DOG ;( would have been ok as i plan on dropping the lump out and chucking in my turbo engine i have been building 8) but upon further inspection the rear end has had a Whack at some point in it life :curse: to say i was gutted and a tad pisst of is an understatement! :evil:

 

This leaves me in a situation where im lost for a car and need to find one before Xmas, i have seen one on Ebay "1.4 estate that is" and one in the trader, i have even seen a 1.3 but im not sure if that is going to work with the current ECU that i have got were as the fiesta OFAC Ecu would have plugged into the 1.4i loom "i hope"

 

anyone know what the diffrents in the 1.3 HCS and 1.4 CVH is as far as the loom and fuel lines go? will i get away with changing the fuel pump or will the tank have to be changed? will the OFAC ECU plug into its loom or will i have to change that aswell? is there anything else anyone can think of that im forgetting

 

here is a few pic of the engine in parts that will be dropped in as soon as i find the right car X(
