First of all, let me say "ERDT is down, and I don´t care" I never realized I was missing out on so much more info!!

At the beginning of next year I plan to buy an LX 5-speed to drop an SPI into..
I currently have a nice 3rd gen auto, that is an awesome car... but.. is heavy and an auto...... It is pretty slow but is a nice comforable, attractive commuter..
this has has opened my eyes to the SPI. I can´t wait to imagine it in a lighter, 5-speed car.
This is where you guys can help... I know the 3-door is lighest.. but I have always favored 4-doors.. My favorite look is the 5-door LX.. I dig the 3 door too, but the 5 is the ish.
now is the 4-door lighter than the five door?? also I believe the sedan mayhave a slight body kit advantage as the rear doesn´t have the hatch cutting down into it...
I am at a loss.. and not sure which one I want.. pics(pics of modded examples of each), and your opinions would help...
thanks-ACM

Nope, no truck... but about a grand sounds like the perfect price.. but only if you can´t get rid of her before the first of the year... I honestly can´t buy till then.. but, she sounds perfect

iscorticus,
How much do you know about swapping engines between 2nd and 3rd gen escorts?
I ask because i've been entertaining the idea of a swap on my 3rd gen. Do you know if the mounting points are the same?

I´m not gonna start a bidding war....lol...but I agree that someone from one of the scort board would be preferred than just selling it to anybody....she aint pretty, but she runs good and as far as I have looked has little or no rust...as I said I will try to get some pics up soon. :p I would keep her for a project I have in mind...but gotta move the boat with something and I will never do that to one of my cars....I love them too much for that
