got a quick question, i read the rule book and am a little unsure yet so if anybody has any input let me know. i have a 1991 Ford Escort (Doug and Jerri Munn's old car) and i have a feeling that the 1.9L that's in it right now is on its last legs, and was wondering that if i decide to replace the engine if i could upgrade to a Ford 2.3L or maybe a GM 2.2L or just anything i could get my hands on for cheap that is bigger than the 1.9 or 1.8 that comes stock in the car? or do i have to stay with an engine that comes stock from the factory in the car? any ideas??

Thanks,
Tom Fitz

Tom, my understanding is that it has to be stock to the car.

That's why Dodges can only run 2.2/2.5 tbi/mpi/carb

Maurice put out this complete list last year:

Tom,

You must stick to the 1.9 engine in the Escort.

I pulled it out of the old archive back in December and posted a link to it. Go to this message thread:

http://spartanspeedway.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=269

Scroll down a few messages and you'll see it mentioned. Or here's the link to the article itself:

http://spartanspeedway.com/OldBoardStuff/AllowablePonies.html

When I get a chance, I'll add this link to the "Info" page of the website so that it's easier to find.
