Hello all,
I am from Ireland and I have a standard focus zetec s. the engine capacity is 1400cc. A mate of mine has a 1.4 also, but he sed his m8 knows about ford perfomance and tuned his engine to a 1600cc. Is this possible? and do you get much xtra performance out of it?

other than an induction kits, what else can be done? is there much that can be done to a 1400cc focus? like ECU chip or something?

Thanks for all the help....Fantastic forum

Having your block bored out to 1.6L would definitely increase performance, however, I'm not sure if the "Zeta" block Zetecs have enough metal between the cylinder and the water/oil jackets to be bored out, also, you'd need new pistons to make up for the lost metal from the boring.

As far as performance upgrades...I really don't know. You might want to check http://www.ffoc.co.uk , you'd probably be able to find more answers there since the 1.4/1.6 Zetecs aren't availalbe in the US.

Check out burtonpower.com. They are a UK engine specialist with some Zetec SE parts. The Zetec SE is not available in the U.S. and is a very different engine from our Zetec E. I believe it comes in 1.4, 1.6, and 1.7 sizes whereas the Zetec E is only 1.8 and 2.0.

The 1.4/1.6 Zetec is not even remotely similar to the 1.8/2.0 Zetec, the manifolds are on opposite sides. The only similarity is the name, other than that, they're about as similar as a Zetec is to a Duratec.
