wot you mean associated parts?
do you think the mondeo gear box will fit aswell or would it be betta with the escort box?
would i have to change the ecu aswell?

you will need lots of bits,, its a pretty big job,,, the wiring loom including the ecu will probs be needed along with the fuel system and pump ( as will have a bigger pressure rating I presume??
then you will need lots of patience, a friend to help, an engine hoist and tools, a wiring diagram for both a mondeo and escort so you know what goes where,,, and lots of beer ;)

but gotta ask,, with the stupidly high fuel prices is it really worth having a big engine these days,,, the streets seem swamped with little 600cc plastic korean crappy cars so theres not much out there to be able to keep up with other than taxis and rich posers in 50kú range rovers who wont race ya anyway,,
well at least the scrappage scheme may bring in lots of quality parts for our old cars ;) ,, if i were to do an engine conversion it love to do a cosworth engine in a small car or a classic capri = lots of fun
