FR200 question

Someone posted this link to the fr200

http://www.turbomagazine.com/feature...200/index.html

I read down the list of the engine mods because I was talking with tom about what the fr200 had the other day. I noticed that they said they make 304 hp on stock rods with just forged pistons... I know that the compression is 8.0:1 but man even if that is crank hp that is crazy to me since the limit on our rods is around 240 i thought. Comments/opinions?

Your confusing things. Rods are not HP rated, they are rated by stress. This means you have to look at what RPM each HP rating is at, more RPM is more stress where as a higher HP at a lower RPM may not be.

Also remember that the FR200 was based on the ZX2 zetec and not the Focus zetec, though they are similar.

"Stress"? You mean torque. That's why Hondas can make near 400hp on stock rods because they make 220 torque while they're at it.

Rods are rated by stress ? More HP is more stress , I have never seen a rod rates as these rods will take 2000 PSI of stress before braking ? They are rated by HP , Rod bolts are stress psi rated

All of the FR200 I got to see and drive (3) never had one ZX2 part on them and not a one of them were the same , the misinformation that was flying around at the time was crazy

The FR200 was the test bed for MANY new coming parts and for the SVT Focus , stock rods my butt they had the SVT Forged rods in them but the Forged SVT rod is a stock 2.0 Zetec rod , The head on the ones I saw anyway was what they at the time called the BIG Port head which is now the detuned and smaller Exh side SVT head , this is where the screw up came with the Ford Racing intake manifold and it not fitting the ZX3 Head properly and why it had the SVT runner placement

This was a piece of work and I wish Ford didnt scrap what they were doing with these test beds

I will never forget Dans and the other engineers faces when they climbed out of there FR200 and into my ZX3 at 326HP at the time all stock engine , they said the FR200 was 305HP but they all admited there was no way it would run with the Beast , Actally thats where the name Beast for the white car came from after one drove it they ran over to get the next guy and said "you have got to come drive this Focus " 9 or 10 Ford guys drove the car that day some 15 to 20 miles

Not many guys can say they drove 3 of the FR200 , It was truely an amazing car but was never ment for production

you need more than the transmission to make it work with your car. So i dont think that is a good deal unless you have an SVT.
