have you even searched ahha. Search man its your friend.

To make a zetec GO!! BOOST is your best bet. Im guessing thats not an option because your on a budget.
Basic modifications for a N/A Set up include:

1. SVT Header, Flex, Dip
2. ORP, Full Exhaust
3. A Tune
4. Cams and Cam Gears
5. 65MM or Bigger Throttle Body
6. Porting the Intake
7. IceMan Intake Goodies to help your current CAI
8. Engine Mounts (allows power torque to be transferred to the wheels instead of being wasted through vibrations, shifting of weight, etc.)
9. Under Drive Pullies (UDP)
these are just some basic modifications most people do to their N/A Zetecs, then realize they should have just went Boost either turbo or supercharging it. Most N/A numbers with out serious block, head, etc milling etc you will just be around same numbers as a SVTF because a SVTF is a upgraded Zetec basically!
