Can you poot a ztec on this cars engine block
Nope, different block. I think it was only some of the dodge 4 cylinders where you could swap sohc head for dohc.
definitely not going to work.
It would probably be cheaper and faster to just swap in a Zetec.
can do it with some Honda's too. frankensteining them.
the theory has been discussed before... the blocks them selfs are close to the same in many respects and i believe it will physically 'bolt on' but there are issues... besides oiling and oil drainback holes, the split port engine uses dome top pistons that would make the ztec valves smash into the piston heads... timing belt lengths and timing become an issue next. the voodoo in the pcm is programmed differently, and the engine would never run correctly without the ztec pcm....
if anything, doing the whole ztec swap would be more cost effective.
