any reccomendations for exhaust (headers and full system) i don't want pacesetter because i have heard mixed emotions and dont want to chance it. i know one of the focus headers fits the 93 lx, not sure which one tho and as far as the rest of the exhaust system, how much ballpark would it cost to get a custom set-up from a muffler shop?

for a header, find i believe it is a 1988.5-90 escort GT 1.9L HO header.

for an exhaust pipe, i really like the sound of the 2nd gen Escort GT's. i have the stock exhaust on my 94 EGT, and it sounds AWESOME. plus it has dual tips on it, so it looks pretty cool too.

next, look around, and find a performance cat. it will probably make a bigger improvement than any exhaust will. once i get my graduation money, i'm going to be on the lookout for a high flow cat. i've seen them for around $75 on eBay, idk where i would find one otherwise.

got to escortfocus.com and you'll see a lot of parts there....id recommend you to get the auto tranny shift improver and the ignition parts.....as for venom...id say you just go to your local speed shop and have your ecu/pcm be re-flashed or remapped depending on your likes....and for exhaust you can go for 87-90 GT HO header off an escort gt you can also use the TB off of it(88.5-90) you can also use the IAC and the TPS on the TB on the stated year....and go for a custom bent piping on the size of 2.25" and its your choice on the muffler you want to use and as for the cat converter i used the CATCO cat w/ the pipe size of 2.5".....hope it helps and have fun....

Uh, 1/4 miling an automatic LX is like 1/4 miling a school bus :roll:

Found a cool site, here's all the Escorts from it. It doesn't specify tranny type though, or if any engine mods were done. I don't care to guess either.

1981 Ford Escort 14.67 19.7
1986 Ford Escort 1.9 11.7 18.1
1987 Ford Escort L 11.4 18.2
1990 Ford Escort GT 8.9 16.8
1992 Ford Escort LX-E 9.3 17.0
1993 Ford Escort GT 8.4 16.5
1993 Ford Escort LX Wagon 12.8 19.1
