anything is possible, but for the SPI, since there isnt really any good aftermarket parts, you would have to custom fabricate everything. How many miles is on that motor? have you heard anything about them single cams?

My motor had about 150k and then I completely rebuilt it so now its about 10k. I thought about a zetec swap but I don't have the time.

its possible but its going to cost you more money and time to do it. with a zetec swap, all you have to do is buy a turbo kit and slap it on there, then goes tunes and what not
