    Looks more like you're trying to put escort body panels on a fox body chassis instead of a V8 in an escort.

    1 running Ford out of 5 isn't bad, right?

    How possible would it have been to push the motor back to fit within the stock engine bay instead of trying to extend the front end? You would probably have to cut out part of the firewall but if you're converting to a RWD you're going to have to cut out the tunnel anyways to fit the driveshaft in there.

    I find this weird.

    Easier to just get a Mustang. Same performance.

    Oh! My bad! From the pictures it looked like you were trying to extend out the engine bay.

    Since you're going to need to run a driveshaft and rear differential will you be running subframe connectors to keep from torqueing the frame?
