    This project has been really fun and it's been more time and research than money spent... The end result will be worth the effort in the end.... The big problem is the lack of aftermarket parts because the Ford Escort is NOT on the list like Honda, Nissan or Subaru.... We all have to think outside the box and it can get difficult.... I may be the first to build a 2.0L HO hybrid but there will be a few of you here that will come up with something I have not... I created this thread for all to read and maybe add to their project one day.... I have tested this combo with everyday driving which has been reliable traveling 1 hr 15 mins each way for at least 4 days a week, for 8 months....

    Since you're on to Phase 2, were you ever able to get dyno numbers for Phase 1?

    1 running Ford out of 5 isn't bad, right?

    Just to add, Marks idea of "normal driving" is a little different from what you or I would deem as "normal driving"......just saying.....;)

    I was not able to make it to my dyno session.... life got in the way, things happened with my family so, I was able to build and test the first Phase without going to the dyno... The power and torque increase was very noticeable, was able to keep up easily with a Mazda Miata on the freeway ( California Hi way 5)..... this was all with a Factory 1987 1.9L head, intake, header and injectors w/ regulator.... 2002 2.0L SPI Lower end (from the deck to the oil pan)... Now that my Phase 1 went very good, now going with reground cam, better valve springs, better fuel pump w/ adjustable regulator and 2.3L turbo injectors, next bump up from stock pistons w/gasket set.... Stage 1 clutch will be the final touch to Phase 2.... I will do some testing and with a new wide band controler, I will get to the dyno to do some fine tuning and my real base HP numbers....

    I just finished reading every reply to this post and all I can say is WOW, I'm impressed. I really like your build. Reminds me of my LN7 many years back. Keep us updated bro!

    Do you mind if I borrow one of your photos for a different thread? I want to figure out how to make a bumper work with the p/5 and escort together.
