there is nothing more really you need to do besides upgrade the rods and pistons, that will leave you without a car for a while. digging out the internals then taking the block to get machined for the overbore of the pistons. then getting them balanced and the crank polished as well. then the re assembling with all the triple checking and plastigage work. its not SIMPLE but it is tedious but well worth it

with the je pistons they have a overbore to them wich requires the cylinder walls to get bored in order for proper clearance

You can do 10-12 psi on the stock Zetec with no problem with a good tune

Tuning is the key , bad tune and your throwing away your bike , new engine and back where you are now , then what

If you had a good tune before you wouldnt be loosing your bike and building an engine now
Not trying to bust your balls but the one thing you DONT want to go cheap on is your tuning
