Modifications like slamming turbochargers onto four-cylinders and installing large-capacity kits are generally reserved for the import crowd who have been doing things like this for many years. However, the same principle applies to this one of a kind 1992 Ford Escort GT currently for sale on Craigslist. And it also looks like it’s a really good time for not a lot of money.
Priced at $ 4,500, this 1992 Ford Escort GT was fitted with a full list of modifications that start under the hood. There, the original four-cylinder engine was equipped with a Garrett GT28 turbocharger with two ball bearings as well as ECU tuning, a Perrin intercooler, an external Tial 38 mm wastegate and an improved fuel system that sends the power to the front wheels via one Manual transmission.
The exterior has also been redesigned. This includes wider fender flares for a set of white Diamond Racing wheels and extra wide tires. However, together with the large hood scoop, rear spoiler, fender flares, and lack of front bumper, this will likely ruin the car’s sleep appeal.
In the cabin, the Escort has been fitted with a Corbeau racing seat, belts and a newer stereo system, as well as a few additional displays in the A-pillar to keep an eye on what’s going on under the bonnet.
Some will obviously hate this escort and decipher the entire import scene, but it looks like good, clean fun to us. And we envision that it is much faster than any Escort GT, mostly thanks to that huff under the hood.
