2.5 L Duratec off of Escape

Just went to the autoshow this past weekend and looked at the Ford Escape. It's 4 cyl is a 2.5. The block seems to have the same deminsions and layout with exaust and intake. Just wondering if it would fit.

If it does wouldn't it be worth doing a 2.5 rather then the 2.3.

I know this is not the engine swap forum but this is just a basic overall question.

Thanks.

Short answer, Yes. It'll fit. If the 3.0 from an Contour SVT will, I'm sure the 2.5 will. And, IMHO going from a 2.0 to a 2.5 would fell alot better than spending the same $$$ to go 2.3...

But I have an SPI, so what do I know....?

Not that I know better, because I'm sure I don't but wasn't there a rather legthy thread on Here about a 3.0l SVTC swap that never got quite finished? I honestly thought That was a 3.0l. In any case, what the OP wants to do is possible, no?

According to Wikipedia, the Duratec 25 is identical to the Mazda MZR 2.5L and an evolution of the Duratec 23. From what I gather, Ford just increased the bore and stroke. Any other website I've found seems to back this up. So I would say yes it will fit. It would be awsome, 171hp@6000rpm and 171tq.@4500rpm.

Wikipedia Duratec link (lots of good info):http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ford_Duratec_engine

The CSVT is a 2.5L stock, but many people swap the 3.0L from the Taurus/Sable. I believe they swap the block and keep the head and what not.

Anything is possible for a swap like this, its just a matter of $$. The Contour SVT was a 2.5. I dont know what thread that you saw that in, but it may have been the "SHO" 3.0L swap that you may have seen.

It definitly was not a SHO engine; that was made by Yamaha. A lot of people do 3.0L Duratec swaps in the CSVT. Here is a good thread about it: http://www.contour.org/ceg-vb/showth...477#post505477

And to keep from thread jacking, the Duratec 25 would probably be cheaper to swap and would leave room for more mods that wouldn't fit with the CSVT V6. The duratec 25 has 171hp stock. Doing some bolt ons would put you in the CSVT's 190-200hp territory. Just my $0.02. I would love to see this swap done.

lets put it this way... if a 4.6L can fit. im sure a 2.5L can fit.

but like mike said... if you got the cash, throw it down and do it.

or you could pay Tom to bore and stroke a 2.3L to 2.5/2.6L and have a badass engine...but you wouldn't have the VVT
