Hey everyone! first, i gotta say, i like the new design of this site...pretty sweet...
anyway

i was wondering if there's anyone who has heard of getting the v6 cougar engine put in a zx3?

if so...what other mods were done, and was it worth it in the end?

2.5L SVT Contour engine has been fit in an SVT before. a few others have done the V6 conversion, besides engine bay mods there will be a lot of drive train work too.

do the SVT contours fly? or can the SVT focus keep up alright.. i guess the contour goes faster since people took the time and money to put it into the focus

when the 2.5l conversion was done and tested....it wasn't too impressive and handling went seriously downhill...car ran 7's 0-60 and 15's in the 1/4....for that much cash to run 14's...i'll pass and spend what i have on my motor...much less than the swap...as for the handling you could get custom rate springs...but blah

it's not really that the contour is a lot faster, but the engine's more powerful with a nice torque curve, and the focus weighs a lot less than the contour does, plus it has better handling characteristics.. so putting the contour SVT V6 in the focus makes a very nice little package. the SVT contour is probably just about as fast as the SVT focus, maybe a little faster but not much.
