I keep seeing more and more zx2 guys on here. We share the same zetec motor almost as the focus and many of the same parts. It would be nice to have a zx2 section. Instead we are all just mixing in zx2 stuff in the zetec areas because of the basic similarties. Just an idea I was not sure where to post something like this. If it needs to be moved that's ok.

Now high rated members (to leave specific names out) are refering new ZX2 guys to this site now bringing in more of us zx2'er. The other zx2 sites that I found are not very receptive to new guys in their clique it seems. They are the ZX2 gods now bow to them!!! Ya right

If the engine is basically the same, what need is there for another subsection?
Also note that other forums don't have Focus specific subsections, TeamZX2 for instance.

Basically this is the slowest section of the site and it's not like anything you post will get lost any time soon. The zetec performance thing is slowly dieing. Hell, if you go over to FJ and check theirs, there aren't but 1 new threads made per week.

the zetec is a dying breed... Plus any questions you may have about the zetec has already been answered and can be found with the search function.

if you really want to start a new section or subsection, PM the owner of the site, Tom, he may consider it if there is enough interest

It doesn't seem like that bad of a idea to me. Though I do agree that search and asking yields answers also, but sometimes it's hard to search for certain things due to our search engine.


I'm all for cheaper parts for the zetec, but getting older doesn't necessarily mean cheaper parts. Though lately it seems like you can get them for a steal. This won't last but a few years. Then parts will get hard to find and go up in price. Have you looked at the prices for stuff for the old SE-R's? Holy cow talk about some cash. Enjoy the cheap part years while they last. I know I am lol

it depends on how popular the motor is/was a chevy 350 still has tones of parts cheap. I can find intakes at the boneyards by looking under a rock.

i don't think that parts will cost much. the focus (actually zetec) style motor has been around since what, 96? 9 years of production and its in more than one vehicle. contour, escort, cougar, focus, escape, etc. there have been millions of these cars/motors sold, so i think parts will always be cheap!! new parts on the other hand may not be!

and the focus and escort were popular to play with so they have aftermarket support. that helps keep prices down. and people selling used stuff

Sure there where/are a bunch of aftermarket parts out there for the zetec, but most of them don't do shit. There where very few shops who spent the time on the engine to get good power W/O going FI. As of now there's 1 shop, Top Speed.

So even with the old parts you're still very limited. And to make things worse the good/quality parts where only made in limited quantities.
