Well in my mind, at least the arrangement of the Dtec motor makes more sense. Intake at the front / exhaust at the rear. Still don't get why they had the Zetec all flipped around with Intake @ rear and exhaust @ front. I mean, I've had other cars arranged like the Zetec too, but it just seem to make more sense to arrange it intake-front/exhaust-rear

Actually a tuner is probably my next purchase. Installed FSW CAI a few weeks ago. Just got a TB and IM in the mail a couple days ago and yesterday bought FSW Stealth Exhaust locally off craigslist.
