Oh, I have a question. My wife and I are in a decent position financially, so I'm trying to decide if I should rebuild the SPI or go with everyone else and do the Zetec/Duratec swap. It seems as though if I dropped the same amount on rebuilding the SPI as I would on doing the swap I could get a decent engine out of it. I only have 55K on my car stock, so I'm in no hurry, but I would love to get some more power in this car. How much hp could I get out of this engine. Seeing as how the SPI comes stock with 110hp, and over the years it seems to lose a lot of that(referencing the dyno thread with ZX3_Chick's old focus that had a decent amount of mods yet only pushed 97hp, although it was an auto) I'm wondering if it's a lost cause. Thanks for tolerating the n00b questions, I appreciate it.
