The escort was not designed to fit a V6 so I doubt that the engine compartment is even big enough for one, let alone the suspension mods, special engine and tranny mounts that will have to be made. I'm not going to say it can't be done, as I've seen some strange things put together and driven, but it would be a money pit to do it.

You can get a KLZE v6 2.5L Mazda engine in there, so I don't see why not. Look on teamzx2 dot com and search for the thread on how they swapped it in.
