could i really only be making only 120 with my current setup? idk but to me that seems a bit low with my cams, intake and what exhaust i do have. i know the gain even with that wouldnt be alot but it should be somethin right? not to sure if the light flywheel that i have helps with anything but reducing rotational mass. even without a tune i have read that a stock zetec runs about 130hp maybe im wrong idk. but all replies are appriciated, im just glad that there are people out there kind enough to take the time to help out.

Its 130 at the crank, only your cams gave you any real power change. The intake might of given you 1HP if your really lucky, the exhaust would be about the same gain. You don't gain horsepower by reducing rotational mass either.

My best friends ZX2 with throttle body, header, exhaust, OR Test pipe, Cold Air Intake, Light weight flywheel, short throw and stage 1 cams:

Pretty much stock 4.2 V6 F-150 with a 4" lift on 33" tires stock other than an exhaust, stock gears: (My old truck)
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T2cuOY8n_AQ

I am sure you can assume my friend and I know how these compare to each other, fact of the matter is, congratulations your as fast as a stock lifted V6 F-150 on mud tires. Our cars are eco box cars, there not made to go fast, there for simple cheap bolt on's will not make them fast. You have to spend your money to make them fast. That is what we are all trying to get at.

I am not going to say there is, but I am also not going to deny that there may or may not be a video of a "comparison".

If you really don't want to be bummed, don't watch my videos of my 4.6L work truck.

It will always be an excellent car, and your on the right track. Just follow the advice with a tune and you will be smiling much more.
