they may look the same but they're completely different animals, Cosworth tunes and transforms Euro Escorts into Cosworths, which have not-a-damn-thing in common with USDM Escorts.

You can get Cosworth body parts (like widebody kits, wings, bumpers, etc) to fit onto your USDM lx. but it'll take time and money.

you'd have to custom fabricate mounts and figure out how to line up panels so they look natural to the shape that you want and so they don't rub or protrude. Basically if you can fabricate things very well, this is something you'd be good at.

Because a cosworth is made by ford and your 96 lx is made by Mazda.
