Thanks but, I got the OBX header and downpipe.

Went to drop in the motor today and the Flexplate off my SPI aut did not fit on the Zetec motor that was connected to an AUTO.

The bolt holes lined up but the bolts on the zetec crank for the flexplate were bigger than the ones on the SPI crank for flexplate.

Seems like the flexplates are different.

Can someone verify this?

IS the torque converter the same?

Thanks,
Joe

Everything is going smooth except, I had to get a new flexplate because the SPI flexplate is different than the Zetec. The torque converter is the same but there is some kind of crank position sensor on the engine that sees humps on the flexplate and the SPI flexplate does not have them. Also the SPI flexplate uses smaller bolts to hold it to the crank.

Question, on the SPI there was a shim behind the flexplate, but when I went to the junkyard and got the Zetec flexplate it was already off the engine so I did not get a shim. Does the Zetec have a small circular shin behind the flexplate?????


Thanks

Joe

I found a 65mm TB on ebay for $250

Also a TB spacer $85


would it be worth it for either of these?

Should I do both or one of them?

Looking for as much power as possible

Have OBX header and K&N intake
MSD coil / Massive plug wires and Accel Silver plugs

Going to get a tune as soon as Im done here.

Thanks,
Joe

What TB is it and no to the spacer.

After you get the TB port the IM to match the TB. What CAI or SRI do you have?
