just got hold of an older 1994 5 door escort (not sure what Mk that is?)
never had a ford before, this one is a 1.4, seems to be ok...fantastic body work, engines pretty sweet.
thought i would find a site with like minded people and pick yer brains etc.
have always had volvos (go on....laugh i dare you!)
had an 850 T5r, old volvo 480 turbo.....they aint as bad as you thin, honest!
so anyways....hello and stuff, and hope to speak to you all more as i start to play with the car and need advice.
couple of bits....
Is the 1.4 engine ok to tune around? not expecting huge horsepower, but you know, just little tweaks and stuff.
body wise its original...steel wheels, are body kits available easy enough
(something subtle...dont want to do the ironing on the boot spoiler)
same with alloys etc.....
the volvos were great cars to work on, but any after market parts were a bitch to get hold of, so am hoping the fords aint gonna be the same
so i'll shut up now, and go looking round the rest of the forum
