hi mate ive had quite alot of experience with the rs turbo side of things, if this was something that i was doing id use the escort engine with the fiesta management system,

mfi system for the escort will only stand about 300bhp thats at a big big push too where as the efi fiesta system will stand up to roughly around 350bhp

so would it just not be better to put a fiesta rs turbo engine init then and save money
and if it is not better to do it this way y?
thanks

mate get the fiesta lump as it is a better engine as you can run the efi system which is the best out of all the rs turbos for tuning potential to achieve 200 bhp with a fiesta lump it just requires a chip cam injectors and a uprated pump where as to achieve this with the escort engine means alot more work and exspense

As has been said, the Fiesta engine has the better EFI set-up which is way more reliable and capable of bigger bhp.
