I did that a while ago, but Ford put a new one on when my old clutch blew. Honestly I like having the added weight, but it really isn't too noticeable though.

Why do you like having the added weight?

A huge thank you to everyone that came out to help with the engine swap Saturday. We found out that Duratec motors are much more difficult to drop out than Zetecs. We got the motor out, but ran out of time to put the new one back in. So next Saturday(April 21st) we're getting back together to install it. Broncoboy took the valve cover home and is going to powdercoat it for us.
Thanks again to everyone who helped out!!!
