Post 2.3L PZEV Specs

I have a 2004 2.3L PZEV ZX3. I want to know the specs for this engine, especially the 0-60 time. I can't seem to find a place that'll tell me all the information i need to know.
Thank you

Well you aren't going to find one. Nobody can really tell you the 0-60 because we don't know for sure. If I had to guess I would say 8 seconds. The best quarter mile that I have heard for a stock pzev was 15.8

Thank you
0-60 time is not an engine specification. Furthermore, it is not a single specific number. It is going to vary all over the place depending on whether ATX or MTX, tires, accessories, weight, track conditions, driver skill, and on and on and on.

Try this link for more technical information on the 2.3L PZEV:

That search function works wonders.

wow i never knew our engine was 40 lbs lighter then the zetec. After the 18 lb balance shaft is removed, its up to near 60 lbs lighter then zetec motors.
Thanks for the link soffiler, never knew FF had that.

Motor trend tested an 05 st at 7.7 sec. 0-60 and a 1/4 of 15.8@86.6 the st motor has a little bit more power than the pzev but I believe the st is heavier so its probably pretty close, fianl drive may also be different. If I could find my focus fanatic mag I could tell you their numbers for the pzev.
