Mark Murphy has continued to upgrade his wild Ford Mk1 Escort Van from his home in Thailand. If you are unfamiliar with this project Mark purchased the Escort Van to build into a drift machine. Under the hood he installed a 3.0 L Toyota 2JZ-GTE connected to a R154 five-speed transmission. There have been plenty of upgrades and changes since our last article such as swapping out the Skyline diff for a 4.6 Cusco unit with stronger teeth. Listen below as Mark explains all he has done to the Escort.
