Anyone Installed a Cosworth Crate Engine?

Just curious if anyone has installed a Cosworth crate engine? D20 preferably, it would be awesome to have their 250 hp engine in a Focus.

Also, does anyone know of a way to buy parts without contacting their sales? Like an online retailer? They have a carbon fiber spark plug cover that would look really cool.

The only one I have seen was the orginal Cosworth car. Oddly enough it was for sale not to long ago on ebay in england.

I have been slowly been piecing together my Cosworth engine over the years and still have a long way to go. But so far its been worth it.

Here is the carbon valve cover cover.

According to that link, it's for a RWD "duratec" application only.

The duratec name is used on many engines we don't see in the states.

Looked up a Cosworth 2.3 back in '08 when I got my car, think it was around $20,000 - seemed a bit too much after buying the car for $5,500.

The cover is for plastic valve cover with coil on plug ignition. Not ment for the other type with plug wires.

I figured an engine would be about that much from them. That is a ridiculous price for that cover. I know those engines are used a lot in British track day cars and I think their website they are sometimes used in Lotus Seven cars. It'd just be cool to see. Hell, I saw a Trans-Am today with a 2JZ-GTE in it for sale on ebay.

they are too cost restrictive for any focus driver to use. Most would be using them in track cars or where they have a proper race budget. Caterham have used the motors as well..check out their pre-owned ones:
