upgrading engine on 87 escort GT! NEED EXPERT ADVISE!!!!!

ok so here is my problem! my car is just not fast enough. and i am going to replace the engine to make it faster. a problem i am encountering though is that the car is front wheel drive, and the 5.0 engine i had hoped to put in it is for rear wheel drive vehicles. so i was wondering what my other options would be?? i need to make my car faster, and the current engine in it wont be able to do that for me. i live in seattle WA, and was wondering where i could go to purchase and have installed a better engine! thanks

Yikes 5.0 in an Escort. I guess this is a 5.0 V8. That is alot of motor for an Escort.

What is the car to be used for.
If it is a daily driver then maybe you should look at turbo charging an Escort engine.

Or you could make your GT into RWD but there will be fabricating and cutting involved.You know like a whole lot of Monster Garage techniques. Soon as your done with it going to bad ass.
