Impaled There's alot of variables when trying to get exact hp....

Different dyno's like giving different numbers, condition of the vehicle, temperature, elevation, humidity ect ect.

but on average mtx will make 10ish more HP then an ATX on the stock motor.

svtguy88 Hmm...that is strange. I thought the timing issues were sorted out by then....

FocusRacingAustrali Yes Zetec 16v from Australia.
2003 to 2004 models

svtguy88 Early Foci had less than accurate stock timing. On average, an MTX Zetec will make more than 103hp at the wheels. That is more on par with where an ATX would be.

Are those numbers for a Zetec for sure? Sounds more like an SPI.

FocusRacingAustrali Engine Hp is all talk ok.
2.0L manual 130hp/96Kw on the dyno made 103Hp/76Kw stock
2.0L Auto 115Hp/85Kw on the dyno made 98Hp/73Kw with Steeda air intake
1.8L manual 115Hp/85Kw on the dyno made 101Hp/75Kw stock

Also I beleive that the timing is out on the stock motor or it's how it been dyno on the day.
My Focus wasn't push hard at all, got it up to 93mph/150km.
I should of lost alot more being auto????

steronz Cool, thanks for the quick responses guys.

svtguy88 The engines are the same. Identical. The driveline is where the power loss comes in.

Both engines are rated at 130hp at the crank. The manual will put, approximately, 115hp of that to the ground. The automatic will put down a little over 100hp. Other than that, they are the same.

Mr.Bergner I've heard the ATX Zetec is rated around 10 hp less than the MTX Zetec.
