522RWHP Audi-Powered Escort
I love MKI (and MKII) Escorts, but modified Eskys nowadays seem to follow a pattern: Zetec/Duratec engines are great, but all too common when it comes to the decision of what lump to put between the strut towers. Well Fredrik Pettersson thought a little different; he whacked a turbo Audi 5-cylinder in with an E36 BMW M3 adapted to fit. Add to that, the whole car has been massaged to cope with it's Ingolstadt-built, Petterson-trained powerhouse. Gotta love the Swedes for right-brain thinking.
A whole lotta MKI drooling coming up here.
