It will fit fine in any engine bay from a 91-96 escort from my research. However, If you have a GT, than it will swap in with almost no mods. You will have to put in new fuel pump and new fuel pressure regulator to match the increase of fuel intake. And you will have to modify the GTX wiring harness to get it to stretch to the right side of ur car(since the jspec ecu would be on the lefthand side) and splice in a few new wires for various differences between the american BP motor and the jspec BPT. I know the o2 sensor is different and there is also a "knock" sensor for the turbo that we dont have over here on our BP motors. Also, my friend jordan has done the swap and the BP ECU has one less connector than the BPT does.


If you have a 1.9.............Then you'll have to remove everything out of ur engine bay and re run a new wiring harness. Lots of work.
