I have a '95 Lx with the 5 speed transmission and 1.9 liter engine. I've been looking into mods for escorts but about all I can find is for the zx2's. Are there many available for that engine type? I'm mostly looking for relatively cheap add ons to boost the hp's.

No. There is a whole Forum on Escorts and no one has modded any of those yet. We just talk about Honda's.
You got it. The intercooler on the escort in my sig is fake.

Uh, Average, you didn't read one freaking word on this forum before posting that that question, did you?

Just kidding. There are so many people and so many ways to mod here you are either going to love all the ideas or be scared back to taking Public Transportation.
If you can't find it here someone here knows where to find it.
Enjoy the little Scort that could.

Someone told me about removing a baffle on the air intake. Anyone know about that?
Dude, start reading and learning. 95% of everything you could possibly want to know about your car is already posted in these forums. Please be mature enough to start reading through these forums, going back at least a years worth of posts. Please stop wanting people to give answers to questions that can be discovered on your own with some patience and effort on your part. Spend a few WEEKS studying whats already on here before asking any more questions.

Look for the Kermitizing thread in SEARCH. It tells you all you need to know about removing the baffles in the intake tract.

I have done research on here. I am fairly new to the website and have not had tons of free time. I will not have lots of free time for a while.
Notice I said CHEAP mods. Quite a bit of what people have suggested is expensive things like cat-backs and turbos. I do not have that budget which is why I specifically asked about cheap mods.

there are very little bolt-ons out there for the Escort... most everything we do is custom. With that said, very little money can get you a few things, and tripping to the junkyard can get you more.

As was stated, you really need to read posts here. We dont spoon feed anyone. No time to read = No time to mod.

Just be like cynaminstik and stick a big intercooler in front of 6 Turbonators. Like bolting a Top/Fuel dragster to your back bumper! :lol:

Dude take the top of your airfilter box off, Take out the bottom piece that the top clips onto (2 bolts) and then just rip out every other intake piece that was underneath that.. It gives it a nice little "sti" growl and shows a little gain with higher rpms.... happy? =P
