Question about 1999 Ford Escort
I have Ford Escort (99) that its engine head gasket blown up.
I am thinking to swap the motor with different engine that perform better than ford. What other engine (from different car) I can use ? with no modification. I am really short in money
Swapping engines with little money and zero modification is a tall order.
The low-cost way of doing things is to install a very similar engine, probably from another ford. I'm not sure what Escort you have exactly, however the 2.0l engine from the ZX2 S/R offers a slight increase in power from the standard ZX2. That should slot straight in (to all extents and purposes), however the power gains are minimal.
If you're looking to change engines completely, then there's going to be some degree of modification to the transmission etc. Personally, I don't think the engine you had was all that bad (apart from being broken) - is a straightforward replacement out of the question?
p.s. if you're looking for power, there is a 2.0l Zetec used in the European Focus RS - badged as Duratec RS in some places. This would add about 85bhp, but would require lots of work so that the engine didn't kill the rest of your car(!). At that point, you may as well go wild and grab a 3.0l V6 from a Taurus or something. The costs invloved would be equally astronomical, so I doubt this is a suitable solution.
