Hi there

Unfortunately i dont anything much will drop in on that wiring loom.

The best bet would be to buy a 1.8 Zetec powered Escort that has failed MOT or something for 200-400 and swap all the engine, wiring loom, suspension and brakes and exhaust from that and put straight into yours.

i dont mind if i have to change just the engine loom but im guessing i would not be able to do that

You would have to alter one mount i believe and it would be more work than changing to a zetec.

The zetec is a lot better engine all round. The CVH is old hat now

so 2 drop a zetec in do i have to change the hole loom or just the engine bay my engine i have in the car is efi so i was guessing it would be just the case of changeing the lump and a few wires i really need as much info as possibe as im alredy bidding on a 2.0 zetec whtch has already been in a fiesta im getting the ecu and engine bay loom will i need anything else to get it running my car is a r reg if that means anything to anyone

i might be beeing stupid but am i right in thinking that the ecu will just plug in where mine is and the back loom is a plug on the bulk head has about 7 or 8 pins whould i have to change the drive sharfts and as i have an efi engine will the feul pump be good enough

The mistake that i made when i changed my engine in my fiesta 1999 zetec is you have to reprograme the key to get the car started it stumped me for 4 weeks once i sold it to a car reparer i ask him and he told me ecu was sending the wrong singnel
