AMAZING!!!!! But im so sad to hear your lose I really deal for you. I have a 3yr old son, I work day in and out to provide to him what I didn't have when I was growing up.. but yeah man I would love to swap info regarding your quest to find those parts, I know a few web site where I can order half or more of those upgrades but I couldn't tell you if it was legit or not since I have not used them yet. But have you been able to find the right home for the beast of a car? I would love to get the car loan to drive that home.. but honestly I'm jealous of your ability to over come such an ordeal and put that energy into something so positive...!!! Best regards

it's crazy to see how much money and effort you've put into this car, i mean it's quick, but for what you've put into it, it just seems like it should be in the thousand range for horsepower, just sucks that it takes a lot of time and money to get a zetec to a decent level of power

Nope no one has purchased the car yet. I still drive it weekly.

My car has no timing added to it. its a tdc with stock head, intake, and cams.

This car is capable of alot more power. When I had the car on the dyno getting it tuned the guy asked me if i wanted to turn it up more. He said "the car wants more and we could probably pick up alot more power" I told him that I didnt see the point in turning up the power until i could manage to get the car to hook up what I already had. I way over built the motor. the bottom of this motor i have been told is good for up to about 800hp or so. But also I wanted to maintain pump gas and reliability. I built this car to be a fast comfortable nice street car. a lot of money has also gone into making this car have a nice ride, get good gas mileage, and reliable.

Is this car capable of a lot more power.. Yes it is.. But I go for usable power. So until I can get the power to get to the ground and get out of the hole then there is not point in turning up the boost.

But all it needs for more power is to turn up the boost and re-tune it with a good tuner. It needs nothing else.
