Yea they have the 2.3 in them. They don't stand out in a crowd like the new ones do, unless they have the SAP package.

You just have to look for the ST badge.


SAP package.

Just keep an eye out in the for sale section for svt rear brakes for sale I've seen them for sale a lot, or look for a svt part out. I believe there are two part outs now. Don't forget your gonna need to update your wheels stock '15s won't fit over svt brakes. I think "16s is the smallest you can go.

I'm sittin on 17-inch FR Rally's w/ Eagle GT rubber already. TBH it was upgrading my front beaks, rims and tires that made me want to go the rears. I've got sexy slotted/drilled rotors with black powdered calipers in the front --and rusty ass drums that need replacing in the rear.

BTW would the Duratech FR kits be convertible to a Zetec with a touch of modding/extra parts? I'd LOVE to just get another FR kit brand new. I'd buy the Breambo if they weren't $1000-proud of their work.

If your asking 'bout a front bbk for the front= FRPP's has the svt kit= 300mm rotors & bigger calipers. To install either requires svt spindles or any '05 only spindles & '05 up lower control arms cause the bigger tapered ball joints, on the '05's.

I thought y'all were talking about a rear disc kit for Duratech.

The motor doesn't care what brakes you use.
