Hey everyone,

I have a ford escort 1.6 business edition with 90hp. I would like to have more hp. what is the best way to get more hp?
I'm going to guess your not in north America? This site is more for the north america escorts witch side from the 80s escorts were more or less different cars.
I'm not sure what year a escort 1.6 business edition is but if that 1.6l is a CVH you have a lot of options.
Here is a good read on the topic.

If its a 1.6l ztech I can't be of much help, I don't even think we got the 1.6l ztech here in the US.

That motor is likely a ztech, if that is the case you still have a lot of options but I'm not all to knowledge on the motor and I don't think we ever got the 1.6l here so you would likely not get a lot of info here. But stick around you never know, someone may have info you're looking for.

That being said, I have a 2019 fiesta with a 1.6l duratec motor, from what I know the 1.6l duratec is a off shot of the ztech, I put a cold air intake on the car and it was a rather good improvement for not a lot of money. I plan to put a 4-2-1 header and free flowing muffler. Form what I know the combo is good for about 10-20hp on the duratec. You should be able to do the same on your motor, but I would not know what the gains would be.

EDIT:
Do keep in mind a cold air intake and header will make the car louder.
BTW I think they call mufflers back boxes, and cold air intake induction intake, and headers are call branches or tubular manifolds in Europe.
