Default Helloooooo to everyone!

Hello everyone!
I just joined in here and i believe the site is very good!I'm from Greece and unfortunately the things here related to power is somehow...dull!So...since i cant be sure about anyone is working on my car,i bought some manuals from haynes and seeking advices from ford-addicted for more power!I own a 5 door escort mk5 1.4 cfi.Is there any chance on fitting a turbo or throttle bodies?I know it is a weak engine and i don't expect to put fire on tarmac,but i like more acceleration and this car has nothing about that!! Especially if your previous car was an ascort xr3i 1.6!!! Any advice from anyone who tried something like that?Any suggestions welcomed...Thanx in advance and sorry if i tired you with the loooong post.... c u soon

if its Turbo power your after, then like AKRS1 said, fit S2 RST engine and 'box, if your just after a bit more poke, then the mk5 XR 1.8 zetec 130bhp will provide a big improvement over the 1.4, if you get a complete donor car, you can fit almost everything, from engine to suspension/brakes, and interior, this works out as a cheap conversion, if you do the work yourself, a mk5 XR3 thats had a rear end shunt won't cost much
