I'd maybe go for them. I'd go for a all alloy rad.1st. Next mods for me are either JBR= James Barone racing or Sure motor sports motor & trans mounts. 70, 80 or 88 durometers, I'd go for the 80's.

If I was going to do some hose kit, I'd go for Samco hose's. Massive has the Zetec kit, but none for the D-tech's.

Keno1bob Ok, thanks.
Any suggestions on where i could start looking?

zetecDon Unfortunately they do not offer a kit for the Duratec motor as far as I know. I am sure if you look hard enough and are determined enough you could find something that suits you. I am also moving this to the Duratec performance section.

Keno1bob Mines an 05 duratec though
