as a matter of fact, yep. My bro did a NA build while our neighbor did a turbo build. They were a 1.9L but I think that was a SOHC engine. I remember that the NA car was within 2 lengths of the turbo car at the track, both running low 13's.

I actually ran one on the street once. Looked like a beated but apparently the guy had some bolt on's and he kept up with me through 2nd then I pulled away pretty far. Would be a good platform cause they are so small and light.

Its been done, there was a site for them a few years back, I"ll see if I can find it. The 1.9 was a pretty stout little engine. The 2.3 sohc was really well built as well.

That engine was not available in the escort. Tempo and Topaz as FWD
and Ranger/Mustang/MerkurXR4ti/Turbocoupe as RWD.

But yes it was a real well built engine.

I built a turbo setup for my friends car, it put down 280 whp at 20 psi with a
t3/t4. 12.6@114 on street tires and the rest of the motor is completely stock. We tuned it with an apexi S-AFC. The trans and axles are weak on those cars. He had some problems with that.

If I remember correctly, didn't the 1.9 come from mazda and then ford decided to stroke it out to the 2.3 and use it in their other vehicles?
