Just introducing myself to the club. I have a 1991 Escort GT with the 1.8 DOHC. I got the car free from a field that my friend owned. After a decent amount of time in the garage I got it to run and drive and that is about it. Sadly it is an automatic but it has potential. I have some pictures of it below. It is a work in progress and also a first car and a first project. I have done most all the work on it and I'm proud to say so. It isn't pretty but it runs well and I want to eek out some more power out of it on a budget so I'm open to suggestion

Definitely needs some new bumpers and a dash but it looks good for free! Mine is stock aside from the intake I put on it, and it's like driving a whole new car, maybe that's where you should start?

Thanks silverton
I see you have quite a few Escorts racked up. Do you know if the bolt pattern on the 1.8 automatic transmission is the same as the 1.8 manual and the 1.9 manual?

a 1.8 manual will bolt up and you gotta hook the shifter and such stuff up and clutch but a 1.9 manual is completely different, but any BP 1.8 manual should bolt up, correct me if I'm wrong guys but yeah have fun with her, I got my 92 EGT for 200 because the front end was totaled up good, I got a hood, bumper, fender, head light and a ton of misc stuff from my local PAP and now it's a beauty! keep up the good work she's got POTENTIAL!!! I should know if I could take mine from totaled to what it is today!

take it easy man!
