The listing says Zetec!! So I would say no. But wait the listing also says 8 valve. There was no 8 valve Zetec. There was a 1.6 and 1.8 CVH but the 1.8 wasn't in the Fiesta or Ka. I'm sticking to no on the manifold. If your going to spend $400USD then get an RS manifold.
Actually, I think all the 8 valve engines over seas are listed as ZETEC.....

I was thinking more in the lines of a GTX or GTR 2.0, imagine the numbers. If I'm not mistaken the EGT guys are getting over 300 HP outta those things. Mazda B2000 Tranny should bolt to it, or most of the GTX's you find come with AWD setups, AWD Turbo a Pinto...

Either that, or that 351 Cleveland sitting in the shed needs a new home. :twisted:

2.3 turbo vs. standard 2.3

I know that this is an old debate but the turbo 2.3's used in the turbo coupes and the such are in fact diff. than the standard 2.3. though many of the components are the same the blocks themselves are diff. They were cast specifically for the turbo engines. One difference is that they have extra ribbing on the block for strength. They are also have the oil port cast into them for the turbo lines. The reason that they were so expensive is that the blocks themselves were cast in Belgium I think it was. I know that this is usless info but just thought I would throw in my 2 cents worth.....lol

See MadCow!!!!! I'm not the only one! I also read somewhere the Water and oil journals don't match up properly. But hey, who knows. We don't work with those engines NEways. Right? :wink:
