I'm stuck in the same boat as Tracer-X. I'd snag it, do a turbo swap, and MegaSquirt it if I could. Make it a track monster. But the wife insists that two projects are enough.

Yeah it would also be impractical when you have a bigger engine bay in the Tempo. Indeed it is crap in stock form but that's why you do something like a 2.3L Turbo swap in it. However, Aaron's uncle has a more festive way to build it by stealing engine components from various vechiles (not all Ford) and building a monster (supposedly bullet proof) 2.5L Turbo 4cyl. Now the engine itself is a theory but fairly sound since all the parts fit on paper. Whether the AWD system in the Tempo can handle it is another thing as well as finding a tranny to deal with all the power.

lil turbo in the mix
