95 Ford Escort, not stock

Hi everybody

I have a 1995 Ford Escort LX here that will see a few aerodynamic improvments along the way, nothing too crazy. It will be riding a fine line between improving fuel economy and overall performance. Right now I am getting 23.5 MPG which is not so good compared to the old engine that averaged about 32 and got 28 on a bad day.

Nice looking ride. There's been plenty of Escort talk on here.

Don't forget to look at older pages!
