How much Horse Power and Torque Can a stock Zetec (internals) handle (non SVT)??
Stop yelling??? Am I hurting your Ears?? What a clown! You wasted space and you did not even answer the question. You really need to get a hobby!osiris_vdc said:Stop yelling. We read you loud and clear WITHOUT the bold large font.
Thanks for the reply. But what I really want to know is, How much HP & TQ can a stock bottom end support. I mean Stock block, crank, pistons, etc... Just for additional info, I am not worried about the top end such as the head, cams, etc...dragfocus said:We made 585 whp with a stock crank and stock block. Well the block did have billit 4 bolt main caps, but other than that it was stock. We still have that setup as a spare. I can back this up so please don't think this is BS. Also, this was done with allot of other aftermarket internals but just wanted to let you know my experience with the crank and the block.
You sure that wasn't a CGI bock? Thats alot of power on a engine without oil squirters.dragfocus said:We made 585 whp with a stock crank and stock block. Well the block did have billit 4 bolt main caps, but other than that it was stock.
I'm sure it is a stock block, I have both. The CGI block got hurt and we needed something, so we just tried it. And as for the person that started this thread that is about as stock as it gets. At least you know what was stock, just becuase it had 4 bolt main caps is not why it stayed together. Sometimes those can be more trouble than there worth. I would venture to say it would have stayed together either way.03OrangeSVT said:You sure that wasn't a CGI bock? Thats alot of power on a engine without oil squirters.
