This is awesome - but what a shame to cut up an S2000. Would love to see a full photographic build report on this motor. :)

He has loads of pics and once he figures out how to upload them to this I'm sure he will. It is abit of a waste of a s2000 but it means he has a fast reliable mk2 escort that's modern. To build a mk2 escort the same spec would prob cost double. Look at the price of English axles and 2.8i Capri front struts etc nowadays. So with the s2000 he has a lsd, disc brakes all around, independent suspension, and it will always start and never need carbs etc set up every month and will be good on the petrol.
