    I am getting ready to do a 1.8 engine and tranny swap in my 96 escort. I'm pulling out the 1.9 lx motor for the gt motor. I wanted to know what fuel injectors I need to find or what cars they come out of and how big of a fuel pump I need. Both cars are a 96 so can i just swap out all the computers? I have the turbo and intercooler but I know i need to supply more fuel . Any info would be great thanks everyone

    Going from LX to GT is hard and also the 96 is obd 2 so its kind of hard to determine how the turbo will react to the 96 ecu.

    best bet, swap gt engine in. get a fpr, and 460cc injectors from a 2nd gen rx7, these are red caps, NOT yellow. then either find a bp26 ecu or go stand alone. MS2/MS3 or spend 2k on that new holley efi. your car is odb2, you are going to have all kinds of fun if you try to run a stock ecu on it.
