    hi there it would be better to just get the 1600 cvh and use the fiesta rs ecu....or rs turbo 1600...or is it your age for insurance........to be honest the 1.4cvh is dank...in the long run you will want to ditch the 1.4 anyways.regards nel

    answer to your question is no matey........the 1.4 ecu is not really wireable....u will need an rs turbo ecu.....ether fiesta or escort turbo type.....you could buy a universal plug and play ecu for more pennys............................not really up on the turbo ecu's but looked around and found most info...kind regards nel

    Escort and FRST are two different things only the fiesta has EFI the Escort has a metering system regulated by airflow
