Engine swap

What's the biggest engine I can swap out for my 96' Escort? I have a 1.9L but I want to go up to a 3.8 but can't find anything on the net about it. Is it possible to switch out?

Re: Engine swap

Sure. Anything is possible to swap out but you might want to figure out how your going
to hold it up. Then the mounts. Then the complete engine wiring harness and computer.
Then you hope the trijectory of the axles will line up with the transmission. Good luck
