    So I've recently acquired a 90 egt, wanted to turbo the thing but researched that and its a handfull,. Was wondering what other ford engines would bolt up to the mounts and are able to be turbod or maybe if anyone has tried a Honda swap, I've seen older escorts like the mk1 and mk2 with s2000 engines in them so maybe its a possibility.

    Only swap I've seen in a 1st gen is the Ford 3.0 Vulcan V6 swap from a Taurus or Tempo.

    That's rough, what about a build on the engine. Like pistons heads, rods, clywgeel clutch sect sect.

    Read the engine swap sticky. Like it's already been said before, your best bet is to build up the current 1.9 in there and turbo it, OR you can go my route and do a 2.3 ford turbo swap from a thunderbird, mustang SVO, merker Xr4ti.

    The S2000 engined 1st gen's you're most likely thinking of are the European models. They are rear wheel drive, your car is front wheel drive. In the grand sceme of things, your car is a 1st gen in AMERICA, but in reality it's a 3rd (or 4th?) gen escort in the global scene.

    Not saying it can't be done, there is a RWD converted v8 1st gen EXP near me for sale right now, check this link.
