With a SC i wouldnt lower the compression as much as with a Turbo , for only 8 to 10psi i wouldnt go lower than about 9.2 to 9.5 compression

I dont know if you will gain enough to cover the 2300.00 sticker for the 2.3 stroker crank

Yes we can build you a 2.3 engine , i would do some head work to the head why you have it off and change the crank pulley why its down

Hey, Tom, you posted on my thread about swapping a 2.0 dura with a 2.3. I am, once again, stunned by the prices for upgrades to my little economy car; 2500 for just a crank?! Your web site lists COMPLETE zetec engines for only 3500! Oh, by the way, when do you think you might finally have some duratec parts/engines available? I have been going to your web site for a couple of months or so and it alwas says "comming soon" for the duratec stuff. How soon is "soon"?
