Yeah, I´ve been called a post whore. Hey, I don´t get laid so I gotta whore myself in something right? I do post in everything, cause I like to help my fellow peeps out on this site, this is basically my life right now, i´m addicted to my Escort and this site. I love it. I´d kiss Donnie and Matt if I could, but I don´t wanna go to jail. ;-) Plus I´ve learned so much about My EGT off this site, which right now is helping me decide whether or not this 93 EGT w/ 118k miles would be worth what they´re asking. I really just want to give this same information back out to anyone else wanting to know about the 1.8 DOHC BPD8. I wish I was better versed on the 1.9 SOHC engines though.
James, man, congrats on breaking 1000 with the posts! :-]
I know what you mean too, cause I also get obsessed with my scort(s) and with this site. And yeah, helping others out is definitely a good thing.
Btw, why would you want a 93 EGT w/118k miles on it when you have a 92 with fewer miles already? Is it nicer than yours? Are you planning to keep both? To drive one while you rebuild the other? Just wondering what´s up with that.
Yeah, and I wouldn´t think a dented 93 with that mileage would be worth more than $3000. It costs a lot to get dents out (unless you work in a body shop.)
Yeah i´m going to test drive the 93 to see if it runs smoother than my 92 does and if it does I´ll pull out my info on that specific 93 I found and make him lower the price to 4000 or under. I had planned on rebuilding my 92 because all summer I´ve done gas mileage on it and it only made 20 mpg about 3 times. the rest it won´t get over 18, (15 lately). (check out my post about 180 hp N/A to see what my new and improved plans are with this engine)
I love my Scort, it´s paid for and I have the title framed and on the wall in my room :-] I had to work overtime today and the place closed at 1, and it´s after 3 now so I didn´t get a chance to get out there today to test it out. He does offer a 3 month/ 45,000 mile drivetrain warrenty on the car.
