1991 was the last year of the eighth generation of this long produced van. Originally equipped with a 1.0-litre inline-four engine with a whole 46hp and 52lb ft of torque, a Suzuki Bandit engine has been transplanted into it along with a Yoshimura exhaust.
Although there’s really not much of a difference in displacement between the two engines, the 1255cc four-cylinder unit makes over 50hp more and a resultant increase of over 20lb ft of torque. Total output of the van with the swap adds up to a high-revving 100hp and 59lb ft of torque.
The bike that the engine came from was a GSX1250F and not actually from a Suzuki Bandit. The bike also donated its six-speed sequential transmission, wiring harness, instrument panel and fuel tank.
While it certainly stands out, the van is faced with a few issues. Since it has a motorcycle transmission, there is no reverse gear. A problem for which the owners’ solution is to throw in a ring gear to put around the driveshaft and a reduction starter to turn it. Furthermore, the Escort RS Turbo seats are bolted to the floor and cant be adjusted, but that shouldn’t be a problem if the buyer is roughly the same size as the seller.
Even though it's a bit deficient as far as comfort features go, it is very unique and with over 100% more power than it originally came with, it is surely faster than it was ever intended to be.
