which head package are you going for? the racing one or the non-racing one? also, i think that gude has some inflated numbers. i did a whole gude setup plus more on my engine. never got to a dyno to get a true reading through on what the numbers were. but i dunno, 45hp just from some head work seems an aweful lot for a car that has a little horsepower.

I am not saying I dont believe it but how much is this gonna cost you.I was looking at boosting my engine a few years ago and this was for like 170hp at the wheels.It was gonna cost me 4500.00 that was a whole engine rebuild and reprogram the pcm.That would of been close to a 100hp extra ontop of whatever hp the 1.9 has at the wheels.

If you go to the junk yard make sure you get the same throttle body and sensors as the ones you have on the car.Some year escorts had different plug ins.

Intake and magnaflow muffler.I stopped modding it a few years ago when my daughter was born.I am slowly building back up.It is hard when you have two kids to take care of.I just got a gt bumper this summer and I got some tricks up my sleeve for the car.They will be unveiled when I finish the car.
