Ok, tell me what's wrong with this picture (actually, its totally right, not wrong. What was I thinking?) When my gf and I first started dating, she hated Focuseses. Now she proudly sports this on her 2004 CRV.
Yah the Escape has a Zetec in it but you don't see a bunch of people fixing those up either. The CRV and Escape are want to be SUV's for house wives that want to be able to see over the car infront of them cuz it makes them feel more secure while driving a roll over death trap. Sorry got carried away, but it is true. I would love to see someone take an AWD Zetec Escape slam it down to a none roll over height and make it a runner. Now that would be unique, maybe even put a FS/VF supercharger on it, that would be cool. woops got off topic agian. BTW tell your GF she is cool for putting the sticker in the window.
Unfortunately, this isn't the AWD CRV. Its only FWD. And I know its a Honda, but no parts for this engine. There is an AEM CAI, and some cam gears, but that's pretty much it. No the sweet thing to do would be to take an AWD CRV (CRVs are based on the Civic platform I guess) and take the body off and plop a Civic body onto it, then drop the SOB. Whammo, AWD Civic.
Of course its probably impossible to do, but it'd be cool if you could.
