I bet he wasn't too happy about losing to an Escort. From what I can tell, the MGT has headers, Exhaust, and intake. The Escort ZX2 has stock engine (over 200,000 miles on it), Ebay turbo, Exhaust, light flywheel, and LSD. I think the best part is the loud burn-out he does while I just wait for him to stage.
ZX2 overhauled, all new systems, project video demo/help video
Ok well, as I said in the video, alot of new things as well as a new
problem...go FIGURE. My poor Z, still running rough at low RPM/idle If you
have an idea on what it could be post it in a comment. if you have any
questions, ask them and ill see if i can help, THANKS!!
Timing Belt - VCT Delete - Oil Pump Front Seal Replacement Ford Zetec Engine.
This video shows you how to replace the timing belt on a Ford Escort ZX2.
It also shows you how to delete the VCT gear for use of an adjustable gear
and how to replace the front oil seal. Other Zetec engines are similar
enough (from 1998 up, prior engines are similar but don't use VCT) that you
can use this video to do the timing but removal of other parts around it
(like the overflow bottle is in the way on some non-ZX2's) may not be the
same and not all Zetec's have the VCT mechanism. I used to sell this video
on Ebay and I've sold about 200 of them over the years and only once has
anyone complained about it not being useful and he had a Focus. He
apparently didn't read the listing where I said the video was shot on a
ZX2. Anyway, I'm sure you'll find this video helpful and please don't
forget to rate and share it.
You should also note that the Zetec engine in the ZX2, Contour, Mystique,
Cougar, Escape, and Focus (not SVT) are non-interference despite what a
mechanic or even a Ford dealer might tell you. I even show in the video
why it is this way and prove it by cranking my engine over with the belt
off and the cams locked.
Ford Escort Mk1 RS2000 Insane Pure Sound HD
Ford Escort Mk1 RS2000 Pure Sound - Hill Climb and Circuit Racing !!
O Ford Escort foi um automóvel criado pela secção da Ford Motor Company
A geração MK1 foi produzida de 1968 a 1974, na Europa, com carroçaria
arredondada remetendo ao estilo da época. Tinha tração traseira e estava
equipado com motores 1.1 e 1.3. Em 1969 surgiu a versão RS 1600, que
produzia 120 cv. Em 1973 surgiu a versão RS 2000 com 100 cv, motor pinto
The Mark I Ford Escort was introduced in the United Kingdom at the end of
1967, making its show debut at Brussels Motor Show in January 1968. It
replaced the successful long running Anglia. The car was presented in
continental Europe as a product of Ford's European operation. Escort
production commenced at Halewood in England during the closing months of
1967, and for left hand drive markets during September 1968 at the Ford
plant in Genk. Initially the continental Escorts differed slightly from
the UK built ones under the skin. The front suspension and steering gear
were differently configured and the brakes were fitted with dual hydraulic
circuits; also the wheels fitted on the Genk-built Escorts had wider
rims. At the beginning of 1970, continental European production
transferred to a new plant on the edge of Saarlouis, West Germany.
The 2.0 L RS2000 version, with its distinctively slanted polyurethane nose,
and featuring the Pinto engine from the Cortina, was announced in the UK in
March 1975 and introduced in Germany in August 1975, being reportedly
produced in both countries. It provided a claimed 110 bhp and a top speed
of 110 mph (177 km/h). For acceleration to 100 km/h (62.5 mph) a time of
just 8.9 seconds was claimed by the manufacturers.
How To Change Temperature Switch And Thermostat 1998 Ford Escort ZX2
This is a DIY video showing how to fix a temperature gauge that wont read
in a 1998 Ford Escort ZX2, In the video i change the temperature switch and
replace the thermostat. The cause was originally believed to be the
temperature sending unit on top of the thermostat housing but after
replacing that it made no change so i decided to try the temperature switch
underneath the thermostat housing and that seemed to do the trick. The car
was running and no matter how long or how warm it got the gauge never
changed and always read below cold. I couldn't find any DIY's or youtube
videos or forums about how to change the temperature switch so i decided to
try something and turns out it worked for me, hope this is helpful, i
figure i saved about six or seven hundred dollars by doing this myself it
cost about sixty for all the parts and only took about an hour if that
