Hi, Im currently fitting a 205 block pinto & type 9 five speed gearbox into my Mk2 Escort. Just wondering does anyone know if the original diff will be strong enough to take the 2.0 pinto (the car was originaly a 1100cc crossflow), Im using an RS2000 propshaft, Just not sure about the diff. Any info would be great. Thanks - Chris

From what i understand talking to a mate of mine, it should be ok, but if you get the chance to upgrade it do it.
