Yes, you read that right. I'm calling it quits, and leaving the Escort scene. It's the end of the line for me. I will never be able to afford to maintain or upgrade this car in the future, so it has to go. I need the cash because we're constantly broke and the house is in need of some repairs. As a lot of you know, the car was just painted this summer. I will admit the job was not perfect (the guy I paid to do it, procrastinated and then rushed to paint it) but it should last a while. Here is the list of "upgrades" that I can think of. Body: - New paint (over $1300 invested) - ZXTuner OEM-style carbon fibre hood - 15" EGT fanblade wheels with Fuzion ZRi P205/50R15 tires - '93+ EGT Front and rear bumpers and side skirts (no cracks) - 3-piece EGT wing - Pony (small oval) grill - Doors were just replaced with decent junkyard doors - Remote hatch and fuel door release - Brand new headlights and corner lights Engine: - 1997 SPI swap. Engine was cleaned thoroughly and re-gasketed when installed. - 50% underdrive pulley - K&N air filter - PaceSetter header - Catalytic converter and muffler were replaced (OEM style replacements) ~5000 miles ago Suspension: - Lowered on Eibach Pro-Kit springs and Tokico S/R struts (less than 5000 miles on the setup) - EGT rear sway bar - Suspension Techniques add-on front sway bar w/ poly bushings - Misc. poly bushings here and there - Corksport front and rear strut tower bars - Corksport front tie bar - MX-3 rear tie bar Brakes: - Brembo rear brake drums - New front calipers and new rear wheel cylinders - New front and rear brake pads - Stainless brake lines Interior: - Mazda MX-3 front and rear seats - Protege center console and HVAC/radio surround conversion - MX-3 "double decker" armrest console - MX-3 seatbelts - 323 door sills - Misc. black interior trim - PaceSetter adjustable short shifter, cranked down to the shortest setting Extra parts (included, not installed): - EGT front spindles, need rebuilt - Brand new Brembo front brake rotors - Leftover Oxford White paint - Set of '91 style tail lights - Several side mirrors (Escort and Mazda) - Any and all misc. parts I can find - TWO extra LX-style front bumpers - ONE extra LX-style rear bumper It passed PA State Inspection with no issues in September. We do not have emissions check in this county. I'll be as straightforward as I can when disclosing the car's problems, as it's far from perfect. 1. Needs SPI controller (mine got fried) 2. There is still a timing or fuel delivery problem that I never worked out. Car will run but misfires/hesitates and lacks power. 3. One of the SS rear brake lines still needs installed. I couldn't get the fitting to break free to facilitate installation. Maybe someone else will have better luck. 4. The front brake rotors are older but serviceable. 5. Fuel door needs painted and the middle piece of the rear spoiler needs paint fixed This car handles like a beast and ran great before it sat. I was able to get 41 MPG before I parked it, and now it is still getting mid-30s even with the drivability problems. I'm really hoping to find someone to take over this project where I left off, because someone with a little time on their hands should be able to get it back in great condition easily. I'd love to get $1500.00. I could probably make more than that parting the car out, but I don't have the time. I have more time and money invested in this car than I could begin to count, and I really hate to give it up but it's finally time. Pickup only, cash only. Located in Corsica, PA 15825.
