hi, i have a good late MKII harness here to suit a 2lt, plenty of other parts too $80 inc shipping

cosworth is the easiest to put in but is overly expensive for the performance CA/SR engines are pretty common conversions and so is the MX5 sourced BPT or the toyota 4ag - there are complete conversion kits for zetec and duratech available, but they are expensive at $3500 (upside is engines are dirt cheap, so you blow it up and another core is $300-$800).

the simplest cheapest method is to rebuild and turbo the kent 1600 or pinto 2lt, the engineering aspects of any of the other conversions makes it the clear winner

its the entire loom - minus the small bit between the loom and instrument cluster, i found one wire which has been extended (its in the engine bay) ive got a workshop manual so i can sort out what its for.

ive got a s**t of escort parts - i buy up cars, fix the ones that can be saved and wreck the rest send me a list of what you want and ill let you know what i can do for you

the conversion kit is so expensive because it comes with a LOT of stuff http://classicescortparts.com.au/index.php?page=shop.product_details&flypage=flypage.tpl&product_id=485&category_id=57&option=com_virtuemart&Itemid=93
the cost of getting it from smcka is pretty good compared to importing it yourself, and a lot less headache than mixing and matching parts like ive done on my corty. there are only a couple of caveats with that kit - youll need to get a fiesta RS1800 manifold $500 imported from the UK and use the standard ECU, or get injection throttlebodies and aftermarket ECU ($$$$).
