that duratec is weird, its not at all what we have for a duratec which is a 2.3l motor, i think the short blocks of the RS duratec are similar to the Zetec but check on it for sure

yes, talking about RS durtec which is similar to Zetec. question can i fit my zetec stuff to duratec rs? cylinder head, oilpans, oilpump, etc..
as far as i know the duratec ST (170ps svt engine in us) is the same as the 2 litre zetec block.
but what about duratec RS?


we are not talking about duratec HE which is focus II and mondeo and you have there in the new focus as 2.0 and 2.3.

Just going fine;)

Seems i can get an RS short block (with crank + connection rods + pistons) for arnd 950 USD
another 950 USD for:
RS Turbo, RS full exhaust system, flex pipe, rs header, heat shields.

Now big question whether i can put my zetec 2 litre cylinder head, oilpans, etc onto RS Short block.

Guys, help me!!! I cannot miss the above deals!!!

Yeah, ST and RS valve cover fits the zetec cylinder head.
But zetec ylinder head fits to duratec RS short block? ;)

Will ask local ford store to order a gasket for cilynder head and for the middle oilpan and will compare with original zetec gaskets.

Theoraticaly the same engin with small modifications...

We shall see...

Will contact them! Thx!
