2.0 ltr. from what?
is this a conversion or custom?
it may be easier to go with a 1.8 and turbo, all the parts are easy enough to find and probably cheaper. :)

His guess was right a 2.0L out of a ZX2 or ZX3 will fit better then the 1.8L. The 1.8L would require a different trans, drive shafts,...etc. EVerything basically. The 2.0L I think will sit on the same mounts and everything.

Well the easiest way I know of to turbo the 2.0 scort motor is to buy a turbo kit :-] . www.gude.com Gude racing already has a bolt-on kit that is supposed to install in between 8-14 hours depending on your knowlege of mechanics. Its just over 2G´s and is supposed to put it at around 200 hp @ 6psi. They also say boost can be upped to 14 psi using their liquid-to-air intercooler kit but I´m not sure about the power output of that. This info is complements of Turbo Magazine October 2002. In that issue they also have other kits for the Focus/Escort 2.0L. Hope it helps. :-D
