Stock svt engine can support over 300 whp.

The stock Zetec SVT engine can hold well over 300hp due to its internals being forged rather than having casted parts like the regular Zetec.

Actually to get better info on this the guy you would want to contact is Tom with Focus-Power. He is one of our vendors here and you will find him in the vendors section of the forums. Just click on Focus-power and ask away. He will give you the most knowledgable answers you need.

From personal experience, you'll have a much easier time finding a full turbo kit for the Duratec. Unless you go through Tom or build the kit yourself I found it rather difficult to find one for the Zetec.

This section is for technical discussions relating to general maintenance, electrical issues, engine trouble, and recalls.

I'm sorry, this thread is really not for Technical Chat, and would be more at home in General Car Chat. I would also suggest Mik3svt, that you ask the question in both Zetec Performance and Duratec Performance as well as study some pictures of the two engines. The best one to find IMO would be an 03-04 PZEV 2.3 engine. The engines are very easy to tell apart from each other, but I'm afraid that an early PZEV engine is going to be difficult to locate in FL but not impossible.

You're also going to start a horrible argument about Zetec and SVT vs Duratec, but that's ok, we're used to it. to FF!!!
