what up all, i have the chance to get ahold of the 2.0 from a focus, would this fit in lets say a 91 pony???? im almost 100% sure the zetec out of the zx2 will, but a buddy of mine swapped a 5.0 in his focus...i think, and is looking to get rid of his motor, and im thinking this might fit and run fine in a scort, lemme know if im wrong.

:? eeew, put a five-o in a focus?! i know it'll make it the ultimate sleeper, but i imagine the kinda output the 5.0 will deliver will play hell on the frame and other things. but hey, more power to him i suppose. btw, i also believe the 2.0 would fit in a '91 pony. no guarantees though..

You're going to need the transmission and axles (and maybe the subframe?) out of a ZX2 equipped with the Zetec. The Focus trans and axles and subframe are different, afaik.

There are several kits on the market to fit the 5.0 into the Focus. Despite it's ugliness, the Focus is a pretty strong platform and handles the power pretty well from what I understand. :wink:

The passengers side mount from a Zx2 Zetec is exsactly the same as the second and third gen Escorts.
The Passengers side mount from a Focus Zetec is nothing like that of a second or thrid gen Escort.

You'll also need the harness, computer and fuel pump + it's harness besides the custom mount.
You must use the Zetec flywheel because of the crank triger for the Zetec computer, that means you must use a Zetec tranny.

Hope that answers your question, so are you gonna do it?

you dont need all the guages, my buddy is runnning stock gt cluster with his ztech swap in his 94 wagon, the only rteal diffrence is the speedo in a 2ng gen is cable driven, the speedo in a zx2 is electric. we just put a 2nd gen speed senson in the zx2 tranny. most the other guages is just finding the right wires
