Agree. The 2.5 ports are bigger (a lot) than 2.0/2.3.

Have you calculated the change in compression ratio. Even with 23D head it should be substantially higher with the change in swept volume?

So what all is involved here? Can i just pick up a complete 2.5L from a Fusion, drop in a set of (Gen 2) Stage 1 or 2 cams, a header, get a tune and drop it in?

It has been done, but a write up on parts needed and or a things to do would be great.
I would love to do this in the next year or so and keep it NA, I think a nice easy 200-225 FWHP should be no problem.

Hopefully it would be a simple swap like the contour 3L swap!

Pm 1TurboFocus

Tom really wants to do one of these. I had issues with money myself or I'd have one. You'll probably have to take the car down to NC though, but if you have the money, Tom will hook you up.

The only question is- to turbo or not to turbo. With NA, I'd expect a streetable (meaning Stg2 cams, intake, header, and 3" exh) 250 hp/190 lb-ft on a dyno. That torque might be lower as it typically doesn't vary much from stock which was 175. The only way to get more torque is to turbo. That would be wild. Due to piston speed restrictions you might have an engine that shouldn't be revved past 6500, but you'd have a ton of power from the git-go to there.

Thanks for all the great input from all of you. Does anybody know if the 2.5 crank flange and flywheel mounting pattern is the same as the one for the 2.0/2.3d? Doe the 2.5 have use the dual phase flywheel and does it have balance shafts?

The 2.5 flywheel flange is the same. And they do use balance shafts just like the 2.3

couldn't you just bore out the engine you already have? I don't know, that might be more difficult.
