Holy cock n balls, that's something I've never thought of! But, that still doesnt beat this AWD Tempo this guy has in town, I nearly died laughing when he said it was AWD! What's the purpose? Tempos suck! But hey, it's unique, gotta give him that much.

^^Someone needs to put one together and take it to the track. See what the STI's and Evo's think when a Tempo does a quarter just as quick as them. Make sure it looks rough the first time out. :lol:

First Gens Rock. I wish I would have know about this mod a year and a half ago when I tried my unsucsessful Focus engine swap. A turbo 2.3 would have been way awesome. I didn't know a stock Escort tranny would bolt to a 2.3. And 14.4 @ 95 is just a smidge (very small smidge) slower than my Mustang went with the old engine.

What's even crazier is that it's an auto. So an auto 2.3 turbo scort ran a 14.4! Just throw in the manual and think what you could do! 8O
