evil thoughts

had an evil though. might work since the duratec is a better motor
2.6 stroker on nitrous. think that could swap in? i know i'd need harnesses and computers. but if i fing the right computer then i can still use my franken svt cluster i'm building yes?. maily i though of this since the dtec pulls so much harder than my zetec at low rpms. it could help me get out the gate faster.

btw its an 03 hatch.

if not tell me why and i'll forget the whole shebang,lol.

You'll more than likely will have to use a Duratec ECU, since there are different timing sensors, and COP, on the Duratec. Which then would require a different gauge cluster since the pinout is different. You make be able to hack together some wiring, but I can't gaurntee that would work. But do you really need that cluster?

lol kind of. its not like it isnt going to be frankenstien already. so i could jsut swap the back end out for 05 stuff, not too hard. (ive totally dissassembled these thing just to see how they are made,lol.)

and for akmers sake ill try this

1- get 2.6 liter stroked duratec block
2- get all electronics for said engine
3- get a big nitrous system to put on it
4- go out and scare society, lol

i could but it wont have as much displacement. it was jsut a thought anyhow. so if anyone want s to use it go ahead. i got other shit to save for before even touching the engine.
