Put in a ca18det or an fj20et, the ca20e is good for scrap metal.
People are always looking for front guards & s12 parts, I would look at stripping your s12 & putting the $$$ made into a better motor

I get where your coming from with P plate laws... But in my opinion I have to say I agree with brad in saying that the swap of the ca20 into the escort would be a waste of your time and $. You could part out/scrap the car and motor for some extra coin for a better suited engine package. The amount of work to get a ca20 into your escort would be the same as putting an sr20de in which you would get alot more gain out of and I have seen sr20de go for 500. The engine mounts, gearbox mounts and tailshaft would need to be custom dont and then you still have the wiring issue and the need to upgrade to an efi fuel pump.
Im by no means an expert on escorts but id say that an rs2000 engine would better suit your needs and make for an easier swap. A mate of mine had an rs2000 when he got his Ps, him and his old man rebuilt the motor with shaved head, stiffer valve springs, twin webbers and some extractors... The thing went pretty damn well.
Just my 2c good luck with it!
