Surprised no , Was just letting you know that the runners dont line up and you block off the runner by about 1/4 inch , this will hurt performance in 2 ways
1 your runner is now smaller
2 you now have a flat step at the end of the intake manifold runner where the air will create a tumble effect among other things slowing down and changing how the runner in the head and intake flows

I feel the ZX2 intake out flows any other Zetec intake manifold out there and curious why you chose the SVT for your project?

Yeah I understand what you're saying. I installed it a few months back to see how it performed. I will probably go back to the ZX2 intake once I sell the SVT manifold. Why didn't Ford use a similarly flowing manifold for the ZX3?

They kind of did for 1 year then went to a cheaper way of making the intake and screwed everything up

Tom, if i were to get a wideband. would it be ok to install it into the bung closest to the flexpipe? how would this get datalogged through the predator?

You cannot datalog the AF through the Predator , agy o2 bund can be used for the wide band , before CAT is best

is there a way to know what my diablo is tuned for? i bought it new from someone you sold it to, didnt know i wouldnt get updates, i dont remember if the diablo was tuned for stock or with any mod, i have a wideband sitting in my room, i could install it if i decided to update my tune.

Do you know the avarage life time of a wideband kit component? (i have an AEM)
