You won't fit a nissan gearbox in the standard manual trans tunnel of an escort.

You will need to fit a cortina tunnel.If you have an auto the tunnel should be ok.In my MK2 from factory had a bigger tunnel for some reason.

Auto tunnels are bigger.
The easyest way is to just keep cutting till the gear box fits and then fabricate a new tunnel.
