SVT tuned properly makes 145-150 to the wheels so lets say 147 , take off the SVT header that wont fit in the zx2 and you are about 135 hp to the wheels , loose the duel runner intake and you kill the lower end to about 4500 rpm
Take the zx2 engine and shave the head or add a Focus head shaved, add comp stg 2 or 3 cams , adj cam gears , good header and intake and be at about 150hp to the wheels with the stock bottom end
Not a lot in the grand scheme. Had some fun and learned a few things and got to embarass a few k20 civics with my all motor, gutted out escort.Well there you go then ! And all this cost you ?
I am not misinformed I an talking about calling in for support and not getting it , first hand experience working with customers sitting on my in house dyno jet dynoYou do realize that both the OP and myself are referring to the factory ZX2 computer, which is at least 2 generations older than the Focus computer. It has hardware IO and memory limitations. It also would never be capable of coil on plug ignition, flex fuel, boost control, flat shift, traction control, or launch control. MS supports all of these. You can sit on your high horse and call me an idiot for doing this the way I did, but the fact of the matter is that it is my vehicle, my choice on how to implement it, and I have a 100% working EFI solution using what parts I have and elected to use. Could I have used something more expensive, you bet, but I did it this way because I have a lot of experience with megasquirt, since the MS1 days. I am an active member of the development team, and when you say their support is non-existent, you sir are misinformed.
