    There are no turbo kits specifically for the 1.9l CVH engine. If you go to the "Forced Induction/Nitrous" section under "Performance" on the main page, there are several threads where people have made their own turbo system, and what parts they used. It requires a fair amount of reading, to be sure, but it's an option I've looked into for if I do a BP or Zetec swap. A good option also is swapping the 2.0l SPI head from the 3rd gen wagon onto your 1.9l block. This lowers your compression enough to make a turbo application handy. I've decided against this however because at lower RPM it's a lot more inefficient, and where I live has a fair amount of traffic.

    As for lowering it, you'll probably want to look at the Exterior Modifications or Suspension sections.

    Body kits, I dunno if Andy's Auto Sport still sells them, but www.andysautosport.com used to have 2 or 3 kits for the 2nd gen escort. Btw DaddyDrew, the front bumper and side skirts on those kits would also work for your wagon, but you'd need to source a different rear bumper option. I don't know of a kit that offers specifically for that- it would likely need some form of custom fabrication. There are a couple of people around here who have fabricated their own custom rear bumpers by splicing different kits onto the stock bumper.

    Either way, good luck gentlemen, and welcome to FEOA if you're new! There's tons of information here, especially if you go digging around a bit.

    Oh, and another good resource is https://web.archive.org/web/20151127210155/http://mechdb.com/index.php/Ford_Escort_&_ZX2. Sadly you have to use the Internet Way-Back Machine to access it now, as the current page somehow lost its database connection/site content, and every attempt I've made to reach the site owner has failed. I included the link I have in my bookmarks that already has the web archive in the URL.

    If I'm understanding what I "think" you're saying, that sounds cool, keep us posted! The more pics of the project, the better!
