Very, very common engine conversion in the Mk1 and 2 Escorts, and go very well on TB's or Carbs.

Speaking to someone who prepares them the other week though, and he said the Vauxhall engine is on its way out in these cars in favour of the new Ford Duratec engines confused Still, I guess the XE motor has been round for quite a while now.. smile

The 2.0 duratec's are good for about 230bhp (non-turbo!)
