the Mazda3 does but the speed3 has a turbocharged 2.3-liter at like 260bhp. Just a fancy duratec

Would probally be cheaper to find a 2.3 from a wrecked foci and turbo it yourself, Would be a bitch to wire the mazda variation i'm sure.
or just build your zetec and boost it.

263hp, 280ft-lbs, What kind of dyno was it?

Things got a 6spd RX8 tranny too that's a nice little car.

Unless you get a really sweet deal on a recently-wrecked MS3 with an intact engine, drivetrain and ECU (and a few other bits as well, I'm sure) it would probably be much cheaper to just build a 2.3 Duratec and put a turbo kit on it. Unless you're hell-bent on having the sixth gear and LSD without having to crack open your existing transmission...

I agree it would'nt be cost effective at all unless that magical MS6 showed up at your local junkyard. Or you could also find a wreaked cx-7 wich has the same motor though you would have to find a tranny to put on it which would just open another can of worms has for the ecu wich would be for a auto since they don't come with a standard tranny
