how much did those ksports cost? I've looked around for a kit for the escort online but can't seem to locate anything.

I got them from a parted car from joshs old car that alex bought, I paid 540 for them used and modded to fit this car from a mx6. Pierce motorsports sells them for this car, their doing bolt in roll cages right now

Ah yes, I remember that car when it was still Josh's. Back when I had my LX's. I'll have to get ahold of them soon though as suspension is the first major thing I'd like to do to the car.

I agree with 4door though, photobucket > cardomain

So, pictures of my ksports in, SS brake lines, new drilled rotors and ceramic pads. A/C out completely now, and my tear down progress










This was after a night of work, and alot of beer lol. I had a bit of time today to cut my exhaust off and remove my exhaust manifold. Intake manifold off, bumper off etc etc.





Intake manifold in, tb in, all torque and ready. Got to make some new lines to fit the intake manifold.

Hopefully, and I never use it but I may keep it in afterall.
Updates, this is what I have to deal with everyday working on this dam car.... Thought your garage was bad? We don't even have the summer gear back in the garage!


Started to prep the engine bay, grinding/sanding all the rust and primer. Ran out half way through so I ened to wait. Brackets for airbag senso, rad support brackets are going in to be sand blasted and painted free of charge :) Valve cover coming off as soon as I get some black silicone and take the oil pan off first. Then its being sandblasted and polished by hand.




Tested fitment for piping and intercooler set-up.


Exhaust manifold and heat shield on. Still waiting for corksport to get me my turbo manifold gasket...

Started to paint the rad support, bought this primer called rust check. Suppose to turn rust into primer thats paintable? So far its just clear liquid, anybody else try this and get this result? Im just wondering if it stays like that or turns into black primer like the back says.

pictures of painted bay, bov in, turbo in, intercooler piping mock up, ngk wires and plugs in. Need to find 5 bolts for my downpipe, and I need to make a custom piece for the intercooler and intake set-up. Enjoy







Overview of the whole bay


New parts, walbro fuel pump and corksport bronze bushings.



Oh, and my freshly painted rims :) Any thoughts on good tires? I work for firestone so any bridgestone/toyo tire I can get cheap. Heard proxes suck in the rain, and GO19s cup way too easily.
