anyone know a brand selling performance cams that would fit a 2.0L 2005 zx5?
You wont loose MPG or reliability if done properly , If your looking for a bump in Performance then find a 2.3 head and intake manifold , change to stg2 cams , Comp Cams , Crower Cams , change the springs , Surface the head .020 , A good Custom Tune I can help with and you will see a an easy 30whp + gain , MPG might actually go up a little when drive normalanyone know a brand selling performance cams that would fit a 2.0L 2005 zx5?
Only issue I have with di is the carbon buildup from the pcv system. The new Mustang has a hybrid system with an extra set of injectors that spray on the valves for cleaning.A higher compression engine is more efficient the whole reason they moved to direct injection. Direct injection engines can run higher compression ratios without the fear of detonation and pre-ignition. If you increase the compression ratio and you get a tune you simply have the tune made for a higher octane fuel. No need to reduce ignition timing.
Yes I know this particular engine is not direct injection. One of the main reasons why we have been able to make engines not only more fuel efficient but also make more power especially torque is because of the higher compression ratio which direct injection allows with just 87 octane on many vehicles.

I have three vehicles with direct injection. One with 115,000 miles on it. Really no problems at all. Also nothing special about the mustang. I believe Toyota did this from day one not only does it help clean the intake valves obviously, but it also makes the engine even more efficient with better power delivery.Only issue I have with di is the carbon buildup from the pcv system.
