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...
