Wow... I dont even know where to start.

As for your problem at 3500 it could be because you lost your dual stage intake (assuming you used a zetec intake manifold), or could also be a problem with spark timing or fueling.

the engines are so completely different you really need to go back to an SVT engine or get a computer and wiring harness for the zetec.
