2.5 duratec easier to install. SHO much better more powerful but.... you can put a 3.0 block on the 2.5 duratec heads add that with the SVTC intake and you have 200whp. I would go with the duratec personally.

OR...... you don't and I don't kill you sorry just kidding dude....go 3.0 since it's the same as a 2.5 pretty much, then go FI.....and bam you're way up there in the hp range.
