my suggestions
1. sell the lx, get a gt
2. drop the tranny and put in a zetec

i dont really think the lx is worth dropping money into unless youre making into a show car or cosmetic
but skuce gets props on his lx, alex too
i think the lx´s would work better as a show car, not a racer

1. Clean up your engine. (5$) Find if any guskets are leaking. Replace them (~50$) if needed.
2. Replace Spark plugs with NGK Iridium (40$). Replace Spark plug cables (90$), replace Coil Pack to MSD coil pack. (90$)(Accel Is GARBAGE)!!
3. Remove any unnessosary plastics and covers.
4. 3" Intake tube (Will need that big for future upgrades) (I paid 84$ CAN for custom made one), Bracket and K&N Cone Filter (80$) Cold air extension (20$) Can go RAM air (you´ll need to cut a fender base to do that) ($20)
5. 3.8 Tauros or Tbird TB swap. (25$ form junker) Will need to make few custom things. Like braket for a cable and etc. In the same time port match and polish you intake manifold. Inlarge mixture chambers.
6 Headers, free flow cat, 2.25" Piping from cat, elemenating resonator and Perfomance Muffler. I´m in love with Magnaflow. Other people like others.
7. Higher lift camshaft, hi-rev lifters, doube springs, Port and polish engine head. Aluminium pulley, Ballancing.
8. Crankshaft bearings, Piston rodes, Pistons.
9. Turbo eather from EXP or British RS Escort. Large injectors, blow off and etc.
10. Custom computer reprogramming.

All that will give you about 300hp.

Ohh yeah I forgot clutch and lightened flywheel.

a turb on an lx is a total waste of money
you could never get 300 hp out of the 1.9L
theres no way
you could never run anything over maybe 2 psi
it would cost more than the car is worth, youre better off to just go and buyy a 5.0 rather than try and turbo it
you dont want to start screwing around with stuff like that unless you really know what youre doing

Don´t you think this board is designed to bring escort people together and not seporate them.
Adam there is a way to get 400hp from that LX:) and yes I agree if you want instant power and you don´t know any you´re doing. Get a GT.

Kenny: Come to Canada and I´ll show you that LX can run 14 seconds.

no there isnt a way to get 400 hp from an lx

tell me how
but you cant use NOS
and it isnt worth all of the money to get that hp out of an lx, it would cost around $20,000, now why the hell would anyone want to put that much money in ANY escort?

Alex can your car really do 14 secs?
im gonna go to the next meet to race you lol
and i´ll do it without useing my messed up second gear

ill race you with my 1.9. btw, you seem soo informed on the topic. if you really knew what you wre talking about youd know that the 1.9 can handle 2 psi, actualy it can handle 20psi. ive been boosting the lx motors for about 2 years now...

wanna race?

you can get any number out of any motor. im pushing 250 with my spi, and ive only got 600$ into it.
