I have done it on the dodges, and also my father has been building race motors for almost 40 years, he is the one who taught me what i know.

This is just my first time working on a zetec, so it is totally foreign to me.

Also, dropping $1500 on performance parts wasnt really in the budget right now. I already have a cold air, svt headers, and FS stealth exhaust, I just want to get the car running nice, so i can drive it til i fix up my 67 mini as my spare car while the focus is down for potential performance upgrades. I would like to get an orp soon though.

(sorry about the rant, just in one of those moods... i was looking forward to fighting off zombies today, but to my disappointment, nothing happened)
A Zetec can benefit from porting, but it takes experience and finesse to get a good result.
