Funny my son is in the process of doing this conversion and hopefully should be going in the car this summer.
Its going into a Pinto engined car.This is an easier conversion because of silly little bits and pieces like the crossmember and power steering etc on a 2.8.
The engine is a Focus ST170 and is in the garage just waiting to go on a stand.
He has got the throttle bodies from DanST and the ME221 engine management.
Exactly the same set up as in this vid.https://www.youtube.com/results?search_ ... e221+zetec
The flywheel arrived the other day from MKF engineering to mate the engine to the type 9 gearbox.
He has got a rear bowl sump from Silver Top 2.0 Mondeo which we believe will do the job with little or no mods.
Other things to consider which he is currently sorting.
Exhaust manifold , there are a couple of companies out there but they do crop up on e-bay every now and again from people abandoned projects.
Water rail,however some people say because the engine bay on the Capri is quite large you can get away with just "massaging" the bulkhead to clear the thermostat.
You will need to sort out alternator mounting and drive pully (there are a couple of options) also you will need a belt tensioner.
Engine mounts which need to be fabricated-there are kits out there.
Fuel tank from a 2.8 or a standalone replacement from somewhere like Rally Design as you need a swirl pot.
Fuel Pump and pressure regulator.
The costs do mount up and the engine in reality is actually one of the cheapest bits.
