|streetfocus||I wish someone would make a stickied thread or how -to write up for the swap. It's the unknown factors that scare most away from doing this swap. Good to know that if you keep your D20 IM then you can use your wiring harness, accessories, and ecu/pcm.|

jeez, please people, don't go running your motor without the proper tune in there first.
The mtx75 will bolt up to the 2.3 or 2.0 just fine. I believe the same goes with the ATX. I did the 2.3 swap awhile ago and it was pretty straightforward.

|GoodwrenchEG||new motor is in the works, I need to get with ryan and you and get something for the first week of Febuary. cannot do much till then, for now it runs, but like you said, making noise. Still needs tune reguardless. and I will be ready for new motor. Since tune was paid for before the other issues might as well get it done.|

Dont you first need to get a new motor?
I know when we looked at it, it was making a lot of valve train noise! (And I mean a lot!!!)
I would first get a good motor in there that might not have any issues to fix then worry about the other stuff!

got the flasher , just sent the email with programing specs.
I will have to look into the PVC valve issue
|11-10-2011 09:31 AM|
The duratec like the Zetec and SVT has the PCV going to the intake as well as the valve cover breather , this puddles oil in the intake manifold , I have seen as much as 2 inches of oil in intake manifolds
Have you looked there ?
Did you get your flasher , I am sorry for the delay I am on day 7 with my Wife in the Hospital

|GoodwrenchEG||WHat does it mean when you drive at 70ish and then get a puff of smoke ( oil burn ) then a plug fouls then after 1 minute it clears up on expressway?|
