2.3L turbo Pinto from USA into Escort

Hi All,
Long time since I've been on here.

I'm looking into putting a 2.3Litre Turbo Pinto from a USA Sierra or Mustang into my escort.
Has anyone done this or tried to do this conversion?
Any tips would be very much appreciated?
The main issues that I can see are that the length of the engine might be a tight fit and the sump will need to be modded to fit?

It's not considered a great engine by many being that it weighs more than a 2litre pinto, but i already have the motor and it has a T5 behind it, so i'd like to try it out. I like the idea of using a relatively period FORD engine (from an 84 model sierra) and it gets around a few emissions issues for engineering too.

I have a couple of these engines - did you ever do the conversion?
