This should be in the duratec section

There is no cheap way to gain HP , Header , intake , TB , tune , Exh might get you 15 - 20 HP to the wheels

This^ you might be able to buy all this for $1500, your best bet save for a turbo.

That's it? I thought for sure with an Intake/TB/Header/Flex/Exhaust/Tune/Engine torque mounts you could come closer to 30 whp. Is 30 out of the question with just those mods on the 2.0 Duratec? For nearly $2K, I figured you'd get a little more than that.


What kind of 1/4 times can a Duratec 2.0 run with a 15+ HP gain, ballpark?

Some research into 'hot' side thermister resistances and math will be needed along with a fifty cent resistor spliced inline between ECT & ECU will give you 5-10hp, but as it's been said already, save for the turbo; you're half way there already.
