Well Last night Me And Dragon Went to See Joe Morgan, Many Of you May Know him, Well anyway We went to his shop and Dynoed Both of our cars !!
Here are the results......

ztecpower's (Troy) Mods : Intake/Header/Exhaust/Chip --- 2.0 Zetec ATX





Dragon's (Scott) Mods: Intake/Cams/Header/Exhaust --- 2.3 Duratec ATX


Scott Pulled Some Good #'s !!!!!

However, I Sucked [:(] But I've Talked to A couple of vendors about it, and with my mods A Zetec ATX Should be Right where it's at [:0] But Oh well Maybe the turbo I'm gonna put on will show some nice #'s [}:)]

I've been informed That We should have run them In 3rd Gear to obtain the correct reading...... The only way to get the car to stay in 3rd gear is to get a tune that LOCKS 3rd gear... So As soon as I do that then I'll Post up more !!

Nice numbers. When I got my car dynoed, they couldn't utilize the '3rd gear lock' function for my X-Cal2, so they had the car in second with overdrive on, then ran my car from 2500 rpms. Way to represent the ATX. Both of you have very nice looking Sedans [thumb]

Cheers!

I thought a stock ATX zetec was aroung 100whp. I was hoping for more than a 6 hp increase from intake, exhaust, header and a tune. Oh well, us ATX'ers suffer together....any way, the car looks great.

I have'nt been to a dyno but doing some math with my 1/4 mile time put me at about 128hp at the wheels though I do have a MTX. I still can't believe that the atuo sucks that much power simply amazing. Imagine what numbers you would have had if you had the A/C on lol

Thanks for the kind offer... Maybe for next year's FOTB I could make the trip out.... My fiancee has to go to Cali for business meetings every 7 weeks, so why not me too, right? hehe.

Keep me posted about the Turbo kit.... I'm looking for FI options for my ATX 01 SE Sedan as well.

Woot.

you have to also remember that each Zetec motor put out difffernt hp and tq because of our cam timming is off from the foactory some are better than others my new /used motor has a different power band feel than my old motor did so cam timming varies greatly from motor to motor cam gears are the best investment you can make can't wait to get mine on and tuned.

^^^Really? Wow...I never heard of our timing being off from the factory. I'm thinking mine is pretty close to where it belongs, because my MG has about 115-120 hp and a four speed, and my Focus feels like it would walk all over it....

I've never had my Focus dyno'd, but I'm wondering if you got a Mustang dyno or a Dynojet dyno? Mustang dynos tend show lower numbers.
