ok well i recieved a 1993 ford escort 1.9L wagon, i would like to do some upgrades. Please feel free to give me some ideas as to what i can do (interior , exterior, engine mods) and to what (what parts interchange from other vehicles?). i found out i have a small mass air meter, please let me know where i can get a bigger one and from what vehicle its from and i fthe sensors will interchange (if i get it from the junkyard and the sensor is bad or missing can i use the one i have?). Please if anyone has a air filter setup picture and maybe part ##s would be great...... oh and btw happy new year to all..

I guess the first answer, and a statement of the obvious, is that all depends on your objectives, budget, and amount of time you want to put in.. everyone's 'scort is a personal hand-crafted piece of jewlery in this forum :D
Although after you got the car, the first thing on my mind is to have it brought back to a good stock condition, namely CLEAN - engine bay, injectors, oil system, fuel system, etc...

Easy mods that I've done? (not sure how macho they are though)

- install an awul loud air compressed horn
- changed speakers, put a CDplayer and a small amp in the back
- change headlight bulbs to 100/80W
- clear corners from a Tracer
- installed foglights.. and not the mini show-off ones
- added a few gauges.. (oil pressure, V, vacuum)
- got rid of intake air resonator.
- added red marker door lights on the front doors
- stiffened the suspension

The list is different with anyone..

Just search around on the site... there's lots of info. If you want suspension, go to the suspension section, engine stuff, go to the specific gen and engine of the car, etc..... It's all on here already. The search button will bring up a lot of stuff. I believe that the air thing you're talking about is the MAF, and you get it off of the 94 to 96 1.9's correct someone???

For the interior...

Anything thats hard plastic, take it out and spray it.

I took several cans of krylon Fusion to my interior. Say what you want about the paint, it did an awesome job.

The plastic panels in the trunk were big, but when I sprayed them black, it made a huge difference, and only cost me about $9 for the 2 cans. Since you have a wagon like I do, it should be pretty simple.
