I think at 0.050 you also are making the Zetec an interference type motor. I have asked before but dont recall ever getting an actual hard number of if you remove X material.

I think you will want a tune with that large of a change of compression also.


10.2:1 is the SVT's Compression ratio. The normal zetec's is 9.5:1 wish I could remember the how much to shave but I can't
