On the duratec 2.0 just go with the 2.3 head and intake manifold , you cant port the 2.0 to what the 2.3 is stock

The reason i would port heads on 2.0 is because its not costing anything. i would be using the head on my car now if possible. if i get a new head, i would definatly be looking at the 2.3 head.

If you have some one doing the machine work, I grab a 23 head & enjoy a free breathing motor to begin w/.

ebay http://www.ebay.com/itm/FORD-ESCAPE-...8b2d4d&vxp=mtr


they want a "CORE RETURN REQUIRED."
however I would check if they will take your 2.0L or get a POS one that is at scrap yard for $50
I will email him and see what the deal is..


Intake is $240

Tom tune $420
