I think this is what he meant.

"Hi I have a 2000 zx3 manual it runs good, but I really don't like the max rpm limit. I have a zx2 and the rpm limit is higher than the zx3, can I swamp the heads of the zx2 to my zx3? Is it possible to do? All the specs show it can be done. I want to know if someone has done it and how did it come out? What mods have to be done to make it work and does the ecu need to be tuned?"

Also, Welcome to Focus Fanatics!!!

Yes you can swap the heads but the ZX3 head is just as good , your zx3 should go to 6250 just like the zx2 does

For better performance add a SVT header , intake , TB and a tune and you will see about a 20% gain in performance

Yeah its been done but if you want a better head with higher rpm and power the svt head is what you want. But if you'r just going for plain jane power do what Tom said.

just FYI the SVT head isnt just a simple swap. there is a little bit more to it

uhhh zx2 goes to around 7k... definatly not 6250?

but regardless if it revs more or not, you will need to get a vct delete if you want to use a zx2 head, and the vct deletes for the zx2 are hard to find... unless you can figure a way to wire in the use of the vct into your engine.

the vct is variable cam timing and it's on the exhaust cam (unlike the intake cam on the svt engines).
