Ranger crank is lighter than Focus crank. Balance shafts are not needed. If you buy piecemeal remember that really late model heads started farting around with variable timing somesuchnonsense. No good. 2.0 head and ranger head bad. 2.3 head and nice intake good. And there may be a rebuild or two in the faq section. If not, someone on the turbo ranger site has done one or two.
Right on. ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ I'd add look for a '03-'07 23 out of a foci= no vct or whatever. Like said grab a ranger crank & get a plug for the bs feed hole. Get a 23 escape manifold= no tumble flaps. Lookup cfm & fwerks to start w/. Also to give you an idea= Burtonpower in the Uk. Seems like they have alot of great motors over there. Look what they run in the Caterham's.
