VEGAS I believe the head is same, if a head would have a sensor it wont mean the 2.0L would need to plug it in to work. I took out the 2.)l engine and installed the 2.3L and have no spare ware harness plugs I can see

VEGAS if you install a OEM 2.3L manifold you need to swap the wire harness and ECU,

badazz2010focus Doesn't the 2.3 NOT have that CHT sensor?

so it should be no problem to run a 20 im and not necessary to run the 23 im

VEGAS Ports a little bigger, but the head over all is same..
it will bolt up just like the 2.0L

I mention this so if you need to use the 2.0L as a CORE they will accept it

mikebontoft so the ports aren't even bigger? that's why I'd assume the 23 IM is required... to get the most benefit from enlarged ports for a higher cfm.

how much does it drop the CR if you don't mill the head?

VEGAS i contacted a guy, he said head is same head, just valves cut larger on 2.3L

VEGAS i know for a fact it works, and I feel the huge difference in power with 2.3L engine compared to 2.0L even while using the 2.0L intake.

Maybe I will see a huge gain when I add the cozzy knockoff
