ok ive found me a donor escort gt 91 or 92. i need to know how hard will it be to swap it to a 91 lx is it a complete switch including all wiring or just some wiring. i know that the trans and motor are mazda and will have to be completly switch'd. is it pretty much easy after both engines are out. or should i seel the lx for a gt body and drop the motor in. i was really looking to get me a gt motor into a 4dr lx with the gt side skirts and bumpers and after my motor was how i wanted then comes the kit but my lx has recently aquired body damage and now im thinkin on a knew body for my setup.

is there a how to for the swap and is there a how to around to convert to four wheel disc brakes from the gt to my lx

I think that there is some sort of Mercury Tracer that essentially is a 4Dr GT.

That would be what is known as the LX-E I think... I am in fact pretty sure of it. There may be a ford model of the same thing. I am not sure.

lol........lx-e this lx-e that... im looking to take a 4 dr lx HATCH with its bumpers switch'd with ones from 93-96 escort GT bumpers and side skirts which would look no where close to a LX-E. get it 4 doors and a HATCH with GT front bumper side skirts from a GT and the rear bumper of a GT. which would look like a 93-96 GT with 4 doors. i dont want a lx-e. is that ok :?:

I know what Ghost is talking about. Back on the old GT site, Mike Geromulus (sp?) had a tan colored 4 dr LX that he installed a 3 piece GT spoiler and the side skirts. Looked nice. Ghost - post pics if you ever get this done. Should look real good.

So you want a LX-E pretty much?

:? Last I checked, that's what an LX-E is. all you have to do is swap the engine, transmission, the ecu, all wiring harnesses, radiator, front bumper, rear bumper, sideskirts, grille.
oh yeah...and you'll need the gauge cluster as well.

Although I'm all for your project, and I know you probably don't have the resources to do this...you could always go buy an LX-E and swap the bumpers and sideskirts. 10 times easier. :wink:
