If you want to go fast, dump the car. I've seen so many people put 10K into a cheap car to try to make it fast, and it's just as fast as say a Mustang. They could have just bought the Mustang in the first place with the $ they put into a car that's not made to be fast. With something like a 'Stang you've got a lot more potnetial as well. If you just love your car though, and don't want to part with it, I guess I can understand. Just realize you're at a disadvantage from the get-go speed wise.

As far as a turbo for you're car, I don't know much about that particular engine, but I'm guessing it would be a fairly large project. The motor was not made to take boost, and it's already 13 years old. It's going to cost a pretty penny, and it still won't be very fast. What I'd do: sell the Escort, put it together with the $ you were going to get the turbo setup with, and buy a 1993-1997 Camaro Z28 or Trans Am. It'll probably be faster your turbo Escort, more reliable, and have lots more potential.:2cents:
