Tempo comes in two 4-door series, GL and LX, and a 2-door Sport series. An All-Wheel Drive system came only on 4-door sedans. A 98-horsepower 4-cylinder engine went into GL and LX models, while GLS and All-Wheel Drive Tempos got a 100-horsepower rendition.

couldnt find any decent pics. but they are out there.

So a riced Tempo is possible if its been done on Escorts. Someone just hasent caught it yet.

Didnt Camaros and Mustangs have 90 Horsepower at 1 point in the 80'*?

I had an 1985 Tempo I purchased new. It had all the options and ran about 12k in price. Buy the time I was finished paying it off, repairs alone ran me about 20k. Never had a Caravan though.

I've seen Performance Metros,Escorts,Paseos,Accents,early 80'* Civics, Trackers anything car. Never a minivan.

Isnt there a turbo caravan that does 15'*, I think a guy on this forum has his in the 14'*.
true, but have you ever seen a tempo like mine riced out?
YEP! Look at the Tempo on the left of your sig pic. The first time I saw that spoiler it screamed rice to me. At least you didn't put it on.

My 85 Ford EXP was the sporty version of the escort... not bad 1.6L HO could take a 2.3 Rustang.

I will tell you guys something my parents had two minivans one was a Caravan and the other was a Voyager. The 86' Voyager had a 3.3L V-6 and that thing would haul ***. Now on the other hand we had a 92' Caravan with a 4 banger and that thing should have been run off a cliff, biggest pos my parents had ever bought.
