duratec vs. zetec

hey, I sold my 2002 focus zts with a 2.0 dohc zetec. it had some mods like a exhaust, ca intake, adjusable cam gears and a short throw. i bought a 2006 focus zx3 with the 2.0 duratec,(stock) i beleive it has more power than the modded zetec, any input? also the new focus doesnt have a tach would svt gauges fit in it?

Thanks,
Brian

W/those mods I'm guessing ur old zetec might have made more power than the 2.0 dura (136hp/133tq)

probably a little more power than a stock dura. and the svt cluster wont work because the zetec and duratec cars use a different system for data and the plug wont fit.

You need to get one out of an 05-07. I need to do the same thing, they have quite a few for cheap on e-bay

Your Duratec should still be more powerful. With those mods you mentioned, I doubt your Zetec was even making 120whp. Most D20s are about 122ish stock, not to mention better torque. This is assuming both a MTXs, btw. One or the other being an auto makes a huge difference.

both cars were sticks. The zetec was a sedan and the duratec is in a 2 door hatch. I think they weigh about the same. I do feel like the duratec is a little faster but I dont know for a fact.

HP wise there about the same. The duratech has more torque. Thats why it feels a little faster.
