my good friend has a 2003 zx3 2.0 zetec 5 speed. ok well first off we took it out racing last year to see kinda what this thing base lined. all it had done to it was a apc cheap short ram intake. stock exhaust, stock everything. it went 16.00 at 86 (1/4) and 10.30 at 65 (1/8). well now we have modded it a good bit. first off we ditched the gay apc intake for a new K&N intake. we added a magnaflow straight thru resonator in place of the stock muffler and chopped the lunchbox and added an SLP tip. were taking the back seats and passenger seats out and leaving the carpet and drivers seat. also removing the jack and spare. basically anything easy to remove. also we ordered a set of 22c motorcraft plugs and a compucar nitrous in a bag kit. were gonna start off by spraying the car 20hp then move up to 40hp then maybe even a 60hp shot depending. also got a set of BFG G-force 225/50/15 drag radials that will be here tomorrow to go on the stock wheels. when the car was purchased it weighed 2570lbs without the driver. now im hoping with the weight reduction and the motor mods i think it should go 10.00's (maybe high 9's) and high 15's on motor especially with the D/R's. on the nitrous im hoping this car will go low 9's and maybe see some mid 14's in the 1/4. my question is what would it take for this car to see some 8.90's and some low 14's? i still believe this car has some un-tapped potential. alot of parts on it are still all stock.
