I am located just out side of Charlotte in Belmont about 12 miles from the airport

If you dont have one there was a SVT head for 75.00 in the forsale section

You wont get to 200HP you will do good to get to the 160 range and engine builder that says he can get you to 200 I would stay away from

But you already said they don't allow sport versions of the car like an SVT focus. I would assume by extension that would mean svt parts.

So are you asking us "what can I get away with so I don't get caught?"

Because I have mixed feelings about that.

And running race gas for a car that isn't setup for it is just a good way to waste money.

"the car must be stock for make and model"

That was in the rules. Seems to me it's pretty simple. Can't mod anything.

Sounds like you need to have a discussion with the refs.

If you deck the head and use a stock head gasket then technically you still have all stock parts. Does that make it not "stock" goes it depends on who you ask?

What about suspension? Some parts naturally ware out. So do you have to have "OEM" equivalent shocks or sway bars or struts/ shocks? Or could you upgrade as long as you still have the same geometry and style of suspension?

Edit: after reading what all is done... this almost sounds like a semi demolition Derby... the last paragraphs would make me not put a dime into it....

The zx2 cams are like installing stg 1/2 cams not even stg1 cams

If your going to go through all the trouble to add cams , buy buckets , set valve clearances then why not install cams that will do some good

If you install 2 Intake Cam then te Intake and Exh valve will both open the same at the same time , wont work

Ok, Its been more than a couple of years since I've really messed with zetecs since after putting the svt motor in my s/r. But I'm back at it after all these years, now in the process of turboing it.

You wont gain any performance from lightening your Flywheel and you cant go to light with a Flywheel
Surface the head , tune , stg1 cams and SVT header these are your power gains

I think you just need to get more skilz! :-). I would still be nervous putting to much money I to it... any one could buy your car for $1500 and you would be forced to sell right? Or did I read that wrong? The deck work, cams, tune, and SVT exhaust will cost you more than that....
