So Satan. Please make sure I understand. I may wanna follow up with my old duratec into Mt zx3 at some point. Its only a 2l, but hell I could keep my eyes open for a big boy and then it would be an easier upgrade later right.

I forgot to ask. You do have to swap the guzzinttaz and guzzouttaz right? The one thing I hate about my Zetec, the exhaust.

I won't know until I do it. But by the sounds of it, if you just follow the duratec swap thread, http://www.focusfanatics.com/forum/showthread.php?t=262509
you'll be able to do a 2.5 swap. The main difference is using the Timing Cover/Mount Plate from the 2.0/2.3 instead of the 2.5, from what I understand.

Goezin and Goesout would need to be changed. Might be able to reuse some parts or adapt them to work.
Parts of the Goezout should be the same, everything behind the flexpipe. Or make modifications to what you have.

I didn't get out to look for an engine. But rest assured, if there's a cheap option and shortcut, I'll do it. Like I said, I want to do as little wiring changes as possible. And that shouldn't be that difficult. The ECU doesn't care what the engine is, just that the sensors are correct.

Well I know I'll be following your build closely for sure. It's going to be like switching from a small block to a big block lol

They are stock SVT.

I'm not a fan of Ti for anything other than dedicated racing parts.

SVT are hard to beat. FMC have them made better to avoid warranty issues.

I thought about it. The main reason I'm selling it is because I don't like the idea of drilling/tapping a composite manifold for nitrous. I'm much more comfortable doing that on sheet metal or FRIM style.
