no not possible. the cosworth is based on an xr4ti, hell it is an xr4ti,which is based on the fox-body chassis(mustang) its about 4 inches wider than your escort

or are you talking about motor? in that case,impossible. cosworth is rwd.

if you do some searching you can find an 83-85 lynx turbo,thats your best bet to make it fast.

last time i checked the Cossy escorts were used in rally before the Focus...so it is awd, but i could be wrong (i have been fooled before)...but i was just curious to see if it was possible....227hp would be better than 90hp don't ya think?
