How much hp/ torque are you looking for? You can do a intake, tune, header, cams & a 23 head. Or just put the price of those parts towards a fwerks turbo kit= 3995. plus options. A 23 motor will get you the most grunt & power vs a 20. So a 23 or 25 swap would get you more grunt. Another option is to upgrade your 20 sedan for a '05-'07 ST sedan which gets you a 23,5-spd, 4wdbs & a few more upgrades that your 20 sedan doesn't have.

I added the basics, intake, magnaflow cat back, SVT suspension, rear sway bar kit and a short throw shifter. Your SES should have a rear sway bar, but you might want to upgrade it. I should have added a tune when I did the intake and exhaust, but I didn't have the money for a SCT flasher ($400). I did all these mods about 7 years ago and I've been very happy with the car. If you do those mods and you're not happy then a turbo kit is probably the best bang for your buck. Fswerks makes a really nice turbo kit for the duratecs.What do you guys think would be the best way to increase my horsepower and torque.
