"The KL-ZE motor is the J-spec version of the KL-03 2.5L V6, found in the 93-97 Probe GT. This swap requires a wide variety of parts not found on any stock Escort, LX or GT. So this swap would be good for all trim levels of Escort, but does require quite a bit of research and preparation prior starting. This motor boasts 200HP at the crank, and is Naturally Aspirated."

Would it be wise to swap my 1.9 LEFI for this kind of engine? If yes, where can I find one. If no, what would be a better way to go?
