Take it to a knowledgable place like focus-sport to get it tuned, and you should be all good.

I've seen 1 or 2 duratec's on the spray, and say the motor responds to it just fine, and it's fun. I'd stay with something less than a 75 shot until you get it tuned via SCT xcal...

well saleen found it a fit engine to put nitrous on so im guessing so..the only thing i would be afraid of is that the internals of the duratec have a bigger to do list than the zetecs..i always thought cast iron as better than aluminum for blocks

i know turbo kits are way more, but i would wait as long as you can, nitrious is whatever, i guess gets the job done, but turbos in my opinion are more long term upgrades.

I agree... but a turbo is just not for me... I like them and everything but I would really like to be able to keep control of my car and also a turbo in my opinion puts more stress on a motor than NOS because NOS is just a quick spirt while turbo is constantly boostin.
