1995 Escort -- Need More Speed!?

I recently purchased a 1995 Ford Escort LX. I would've preferred the updated model, but this one came at the right price so I jumped at the offer. Anyhow, I have the standard 1.9L engine which is noticeably slower than the 2.0L I have been accustomed to driving in the newer model. Would it be difficult and/or expensive to put a larger engine into my car? It's in decent condition with 112k miles. Manual transmission. Thanks!


I own a 1988 Honda Civic LX Sedan and love the car.?

swap the engine out foe the forb probe engine. Its a 2.0L and some of the earlier models were available with turbo. Then go from there. Besides all the other guys will be mad when you beat them in an escort. And that provides you with an unlimited amount of smack talk.
