If Mazda designed or redesigned the 1.9, they wouldn't build two sets of trannies, for two engines that close in size and power it makes no sense mechanically or financially to build two sets of trannies. The 1.9 trannies are non interchangeable with the 1.8 trannies because of this fact.
I still have the window sticker for my 1995LX, and it specifically states that the transmission is made in Japan. Do I need to scan in and post to convince you that the transmission is a Mazda product?

Manufactured in Japan does not mean it was built by Mazda, just as built in North America does not mean built by Ford. Mazda has plants in North America, and Ford owns plants in Japan. It's still a Ford design if it's built in a Japanese Ford plant. It's also a Mazda design if it's built in a North American Mazda plant. :wink:

The dead giveaway...

The 1.9 never made it's way into the Protege or MX-3. :D

Systemdw...I think its obvious that you arent going to get any help here. Try going to the erdt website. They have a ton of good info on swapping your engine there. http://www.escortracing.com check out the forums there.
If he'd take a good look at the threads here in the Engine Tuning forum he'd find about 30 relevant engine swap threads. We'll still help him out here at FEOA, even with the wrong thongs... we don't discriminate against your underwear.

A tranny "made" in Japan and a 91-96 1.9 being designed by Mazda are two differnt things, and how you got them mixed up? I dont know.
I think you need to take you own advice and "Get you facts straight".

Hey there, everyone. I have nothing to contribute to this argument except......sic em. (In saying that, I am actually rooting for both sides as much as possible so I am not asking either side to sic either other side. ;-)
However, I did want to ask if someone would explain to me what the BP in 1.8BP means and what the CVH in 1.9CVH means. Thanks for the help. Okay now, lets keep it clean, and come out boxing.

Nuff said.

Engines?

NEED ENGINE

is this possible

2.2L Mazda Turbo in a 2nd Gen LX?

ZX2 engine for 2end gen?

has anyone put a 2.0 in a OBDI (95 or earlier)

98 mercury mistique v6 in a 97 scort?

engine swap

There..

8 frickin relevant topics from a quick search of the Engine Tuning forum. He's asked a question that gets answered here every other week, and you're pointing him at EscortRacing. :roll: There are still 10 more pages left to search which may hold great information (and other forums), but some people would rather have every drop of wisdom spoon fed to them by faceless names :x Do your own GD research for a change people, this is the frickin internet! Some of us don't have time to write an essay describing the same shit every week.. for us they created forums where our essays could be saved for later reference.
:x

yeah... what he said.

BP and CVH are essentially just engine codes as far as I understand it. I could be wrong but I'm about 98% sure its just the code for the engine. the 1.8(BP) and 1.9(CVH) basically have nothing in common except physics and the car they go in.

I agree, people can do their own research and find what they need, but the point is, some people are just too stupid and ignorant to do that. Thats why the forum exists; so that Joe Dumbass can come in here, having never been here before, and ask a question and get an answer.
I dont have a problem with people arguing about who knows more about cars than the other person, or who needs to check their information before they post it, but the forum has plenty of places to do that; doing it in a post that someone needed an answer to doesnt help anyone.
The majority of people out there dont want to take the time to do their own research. Thats why we have these websites and forums, among other reasons, and if they dont get what they want, they go somewhere else. 90 percent of the posts I see on the very front page of this website are childish, off topic and irrelevant to what the original post was about in the first place. Its no wonder we dont have more paying members than we do.

I didn't read all the posts but I heard of a guy that swapped a 2.0L DSM turbo motor into his 91-96 Escort Wagon. Required everything to do..but did it.


My recommendation is to swap to the 2.0L...heck try to go all out and grab a Focus SVT motor :?:

no shirt.......duct tape on my nipples :wink: and a type r thong :lol:

wtf where did i come up with that?
Type R? I just use a regular thong. I ditched the vinyl chair for a cloth one so it's a little more comfortable. I wasn't sure if the obscenity rules in here allow wearing a thong while posting. Is that a REAL type R thong or did you just buy the emblem and stick it on a base model thong?

Second generation Escorts are all similar to the Mazda Protoge, but they are not the same. The GT is most like the protoge, but even the LX & pony are similar in some ways and not in others. It isn't the same from year to year, so there is no way to have "facts straight" with such a blanket timeframe of 91-96. However, to answer the original question, you CAN put a Mazda engine into your LX because the GT is a LX with a Mazda engine basically. Yes there are a lot of other things that are different, and you would be required to change some, but not all of them to put a Mazda engine into your car. Puttting a Mitsubishi or some other manufacturer's engine into your car isn't worth it, and would be pretty much impossible for you to do yourself anyway. You may want to look at just replacing the part that "broke inside the engine" as opposed to putting a whole new engine in the car. You could get a new Ford engine for the car, that is newer than the one in there, and not broken, but the same basic engine, but even though it has hints of Mazda involvement (or rather Ford mimicing Mazda's protoge and 323 designs) it IS a FORD engine NOT A MAZDA or MAZDA REDESIGN. It will not be as reliable as the Mazda engine, and will take FORD parts... so decide what is best for you, and stop wearing that nasty thong.

CVH stands for "center valve head" if I recall correctly and it is all ford. the second gen LX 1.9 is nearly identical to the 1st gen 1.9 LX engine.I dont know why Ford didnt dump this engine and stick with the H.O version for the second gen which produced around 110 hp as opposed to the 88 hp of the LX and would probably be the easiest and smartest swap for LX because 1st gen GT's are a dime a dozen and engines are easy to find.Another good swap would be the 3rd gen 2.0 spi engine which is also basically the same engine as the 1.9. to swap in any other engine would require alot more work

CVH = Compound Valve angle Hemispherical.

A first gen GT has too many differances to make it work on a second gen, the starter motors are in differnt places, the disribitor would have to be removed and DIS added, not sure if cam sensor is the same...ect

The 97 2.0 is about as a direct fit as you can get, only differnace is a SPI controller and TPS.
