    Default Escape gear swap

    If my findings are correct has anybody done this by swapping out the escape gearing into a zx2 trans? Like using the zx2 diff escape ring gear and all the other gears from the escape into the escort housing?

    The zx2 diff cannot go onto the escape ring gear unless you are going to get creative. There are 14 bolts holding the ring gear to the diff in the escape trans and on the zx2 there are 8 rivots.

    Maybe but the roll pins on the escape diff will be difficult to get out because they don't go through the other end. I just used the entire case and all. Kia sephia drivers axle 02 protege 5 passenger axle and jack shaft. I just built a bracket to mount the jack shaft and keep it solid
