i dont think you are. awhile ago a 05 zx3 owner had a fuel pump problem that destroyed the engine and had a 2.3L put in it cause it was the only one the factory could find. the best part it was all covered by the warrenty

the 2.3 duratec if I'm not mistaken might be the same engine that came in the previous year foci? I think the ST just has different gears, different exhaust and may be more agressively tuned. I honestly don't know if the 2.3 liter duratec in the 05 ST+ is a new engine.

i thought the only 2.3 offered was a pzev or whatever and was not a tuned as the st one

we need a 2.3 04 owner to set us straight

yeah, I dunno. Wasn't the pzev just a 2.3 with a more strict header and a less agressive tune? It has like 145 horsepower and 151 torque where the st is 151/154.

The 2.3l engine in the 2003-2004 Focus and the 2005+ are essentially the same. Both are Duratecs, except the ST has a better flowing exhaust manifold, better ECU tune, a plastic valve cover, and a better final drive gear. Also, the 2003-2004 are rated PZEV, and the 2005+ aren't (not sure what they are, maybe SULEV II)
