    Don't the rear diff is tiny and will blow up unless upgraded. Or do you just mean an ST215 engine in another car?
    If in doubt power out

    Yes I will put the engine on another car (ford ERscort mk2)
    The diff will be from a Celica GT4
    Regards

    Celica GT4 rear diff? It's the same as the Caldina and isn't designed to take the power of the engine in rwd layout especially once modified.

    Thats an ok option but probably not quite bullet proof with turbo torque.
