SPI Intake manifold

So, I was randomly looking around the web today and came upon a picture of the 1.9 used in the escorts. I noticed that the intake manifold is mostly located up higher (same level as the valve cover)... Anyone who has ever worked on a spi would now that it can be hard to work around the stock intake as it takes up so much room on the back (side) of the engine. its not like its impossible to work around but if i recall the easiest way for me was to have an extension until the ratchet was outside past the fender. and i needed 1 or 2 swivel sockets.... You know the ones that go side to side, not sure what they are called. Anyways im thinking this will give my car a bit different of a look and make it easier for any future starter problems...



Off the get go im thinking if it will fit i will have to reroute the throttle cable or get one out of a escort.

Anyone hear of anyone doing this? and know of a link to someone doing this? I tried the search but i couldnt find anything, but i have over looked stuff before.
