Re: looking to put turbo on 1600cc escort engine is it possible???
You can ..Just that there combustion chambers are in there pistons so tuning will need to be right on and boost referanced so it retards as boost rises...
Imo I would simply drop a 2.0 Cortina motor in there.The 2.0 will bolt up to 1600 gear box.Or the 2.0 Cortina box will fit..Engine mounts are the same, change radiator so its further forward..The 2.0 Pinto / Cortina sohc motor is 10 times stronger than the old Kent engines..Oh and you'll need a 2.0 escort sump...
Don't be afraid to try something new. Remember, amateurs built the Ark...Professionals built the Titanic!
