  1. Escort mk6 engine swaps

    I am going to buy a mk6 escort van soon and I was wondering what performance engines would fit (with turbos and such) From any manufacturer Just what will fit well
  2. Ford Escort 1.6 Finesse for sale 39,000 miles W reg - August 2000 Moondust silver metallic FSH from new Excellent condition inside and out Belonged to my elderly father who passed away earlier this year and now looking for a good home as the car was his pride and joy. Please note the car has no MOT/no roadtax as the car was taken off the road earlier this year. However, it has only covered around 300 miles since the last MOT and service(2016). Happy to provide photos if required. Will consider all sensible offers. Would love it to go to an enthusiast.
  3. Hi So my first car was a mk4 escort and after 4 years of searching i have finally found a car just like mine was. Lets be clear, it´s a hobby car and i don´t want to keep it as original. Now my question is has anyone done an engine swap? What is the easiest fit? What ecu do you use? Can you turbocharge it? I have a serious problem. I am addicted to turbos. I´ve turbocharged almost all my cars so far. Now i don´t want to cut the body in any so it can´t be converted to original. maybe you can point out a doch engine that would easily fit the car and some links to find new forged internals. At the end i am hoping to get 180-220 bhp from the wheels. So i´m not gonna overdo this project. Do i even need forged internals or is there a ford engine that can be turbocharged and handle this small power? English is not my first language so i´m sorry if i´ve made some grammar mistakes. Thank you Raido

Can anyone let me know the best seats, splitters, skirts, im just looking for a plain look, like the gti escort. and also were to order the parts online. Also, if anyone would know what is involved in the rear brakes conversation to dics is this a big job? Best parts?

  8. My first Ford!

    Hi I've just joined the group because I bought a 1996 Ford Escort 1.6i LX in metallic petrol blue with 20.5k genuine miles that has been treated like a pampered pet. Unusually, its automatic and it drives very smoothly. I'm really enjoying it so far but I'm undecided whether to run it as a normal car or make the effort to get it into concours condition. Im hoping your stories on this forum will help me decide. Happy motoring!
  9. my daily donkey

    just a hello as i now own a ford... not a rs turbo or st just a 2000 1.8d escort 55 van ex- royal mail but i loves it!
  10. One for the mechanics this: I've got a 1.6 Mk4 Escort, fitted with a twin-barrel Weber carb with automatic choke. Only thing is I don't like the auto choke; I gather they're very maintenance-heavy and prone to causing problems unless they're perfectly tuned, which I'll admit I'm not savvy enough to do. In theory, can I have this converted to a manual choke without having to change the carburettor? Or if anyone knows a forum where this might get answered, let me know!

  18. Hi guys I've got a 1989 XR3I cabriolet which has a bodykit fitted from an Orion 1600E ( I think) it's all genuine rs stamps on both bumpers and I have 2 skirts aswell. I'm removing them as I've just bought the car and don't like them, are they worth anything or am I better binning them? Cheers
  19. Mk4 Escort bonus engine change?

    I have a late '88 mk4 1.3 bonus escort which is tremendously slow and doesn't enjoy hills and the like. I was contemplating putting a 1.6 from an xr3i or something similar in it and was wondering if the rest of the car would be able to cope? I am no mechanic whatsoever so any help would be much appreciated!!

    Here are a few pics of my 96 escort serenade. It's only done 68,000 miles and wanted to do a few little mods but keep the originality intact. Think I've carried it off. So far fitted a mk5 orion rear bumper then refurbed some mk6 escort van wheels and installed a rev counter.
  22. Escort 1998 Finesse For Sale

    I'm selling my Escort Finesse 1998, in silver. Only two previous owners, myself and my mum. It's done under 50,000 miles. The clutch is slightly wearing and may need a new battery we're testing at the moment, but everything else is in great condition. Also comes with working AC and CD player. Looking to sell for around £150, that's what the garage will give us to scrap it, but that seems as shame as it's in such good condition. If anyone is interested please let me know as soon as possible as the garage are planning on towing it away next week. Let me know if you have any questions. Thanks

  24. Starting Problems

    So now and again very rare I will go up to my escort mk6 1.8 ghia. And turn the key. There are lights on the dash and u get all power. However u don't hear the fuel pump cut in. Then you turn the key and there is no starter motor kicking in. U only hear a small click. Then more often not very. You are driving along and it just dies. Try turning it back on same happens as I I said up above no fuel pump no starter. Help Also inside the engine by the firewall the only way I can describe it is as a piston. It's a cylinder shape and a metal rod that gets pushed inside when the key is turned on to the ignition. However when the problem happens and you turn the key u get dash lights but that pistion dosnt push in. What is this piston
