2.5 info

Looking all around for 2.5 build info. Has any one tried to put one in a Focus yet, any performance parts out there for one? Seen a Fusion in 2012 at Carlisle PA Ford event with a FSW turbo kit at 8lbs make 235hp. They would not turn it up more because of stock internals. Does any one know if there is now rods & pistons? Have any spec info like sizing of internals and more?

Very similar to a 23= longer stroke & 25 using a little bigger bore. There are some in the swap section. Yea stock rods/pistons would keep the boost down. Would you or are you doing to boost it? Or a N/A motor?

Do you have a 2.5 core or do you want the price with the core included ?
