has anyone swapped their engines with the 2.0 or 2.3 cossie duratech engines. the ones you can find on focus sport? if so have there been any issues besides the $13,000 price tag...

i hope for that money that if you had an issue you had someone you can call and cosworth would fly them to your front door with a helicopter to make the repairs at any time or day.


but in essense, they are full race motors... they come with an Alt relocation kit, which eliminates the a/c compressor and powersteering pump... and im sure they run on 93oct or above, and knowning cosworth, im sure the cams have bigger bumps than the crank does.

thanks guys. it would be way more sensible to build a ST 2.3 engine and swap it in. i was just hoping someone went all out.

for 13k no way, to pricey, sure its a cossie, but we drive foci, and to spend more on a motor then the car is worth is not a resonable choice, if i wont the lotto i def would tho, mmmmm 10krpm revvings FTW!

cosworth built those engines more for a kit car, like the Lotus 7 Replica kit car... not specifically the focus.

I would throw that into my car in a heartbeat.....if someone else paid for it. For 13k, you could do a ridiculous amount to your car

Side note: 1000 posts!

13,000 could get you so much more power for the money if you spent it elsewhere. You could build a nice FI setup for that much....and build it right.

Yeah, those are some pretty engines, but by god man. You can put down SO much more than 250 HP with a good F/I setup on a 2.0 for around -half- of thirteen grand.
