More power?

If I was to get a full fswerks 2.5 in exhaust, fswerks race header, fs weeks cold air intake,bigger fuel injectors, and a tune from Tom. How much more hp will I get and would it be worth it. Would my mpg go down or up?

I take it you have a 23. Why would you need bigger injectors for? Put the injector money torwards a set of mid range cams. Make the motor more effictent will get you more hp & mpg.

If you have a '03 foci w/ a 20 motor, then I say you have a zetec motor, instead of a 23. Is your intake in the front or back? Firewall side or rad. side? Forget the injectors.

130-135 whp is whats expected to get from an intake, header, exhaust and tune. The stock system is something like 115-120whp.

Add that & a 23 head. Or add a set of 224-0010 crane cams. forget the injectors. Bigger injectors do no good, let alone w/ a 20 head. How 'bout a dogbone & a sts?

Your '07 should be just like mine (D20). I also had an '03 with a zetec, so I can tell you what to expect (up to the mods in my sig). The duratec is quicker, but when I first made the switch from a zetec it was hard to tell. The dragstrip doesn't lie, though. Turns out the D20 is just smoother power. With the mods in my sig I average around 30 mpg, and I get on it all the time. Hope this gives some insight.

Where could I buy a 23 head? Is there any other upgrades I could buy that are worth the money
