Now you may recognise this ride as a feature car in Fast Ford which is a credit to the owner who built this 2.0L Zetec Turbo animal!! Amazingly the conversion still maintains alot of the standard internal engine parts. The crank, rods, and cams all remain as Ford intended…but the owner picked up from where Ford left off, and forged pistons, bigger injectors, an intercooler and a Cosworth T34 Turbo were squeezed into the unexpecting Escort engine bay. Now these are the kind of extras you won’t find on any Ford optional extra lists!!
So how do you get all this trickery to work together as if it was factory fit, well thats where Bailey Performance come in with a Megasquirt ECU install and of course their invaluable exprience of tuning such transformations! And the end result…(drum roll please!)…328BHP and 300LB/FT of torque!!
