4 Grand?? Omg you can do soo much with that and piss on duratecs (though i wish i had one..) my little zetec has weapon R intake and rear seats removed and ive beat plently of 2.0 duratecs. If you boost your zetec im sure you wont have to worry about the majority (i repeat the majority) of the duratecs on the road.

I have yet to see a boosted Dura’s HP output match a boosted Zetec’s output.
e.g.: Turbo magazine 4/07 Zetec 472 HP. Care to rebut?

Well as long as we're talking one-up kind of cars vs what most FFer's have the time & money for;

I have yet to see a Zetec do this:

Tom (Focus-Power) had a NASA-spec race Zetec-powered ZX3 that was beating a bunch of V8 powered cars at Mid-Ohio last year...it made something in the range of 500 WHP.

But I'm sure that's different because its contrary to your argument.

Seriously though, a Zetec with $4,000 in mods > Duratec.
