Ok I know im going to get flamed for this but i just have to ask. Has anyone ever swapped a 2nd gen over to a V8 and rear wheel drive? I once saw a hatchback focus with a 351W and rear wheel drive and it was awesome. If anyone has done it let me know what rear end and tranny were used? Let the flaming begin!!!

I would LOVE to make a RWD V8 2nd gen Escort GT!!! I was thinking do a 302 V8 though, lighter, higher RPM range, and MORE than enough kick for a light RWD escort ;)

So my idea is if you wanna try it be the first I've ever heard of man! You'll hear of me doing it in about 10 years when I finally retire my 92 EGT and make it my weekend car!

it'll take a lotta fabbing and what not but it'll be worth it! see an escort coming and hear it rumble by! YES!

There is a video on Youtube of a 302 swapped ZX2. Since the zx2 is almost structurally the same as a 2nd gen it can be done, but it will be quite the undertaking.

There's that guy running the yellow 2nd gen w/ a rwd BPT setup. If that can be done, V8 can be done. It's just a matter of sticking that shit in.
