So I picked up this Contour about 2 months ago and I've just been in the process of working out the kinks.
Basically its a bone stock SVT with a '07 Escape Full 3L swap.
SVT injectors & MAF
Escape Fuel Rail w/ return setup
Stock exh. manifolds
Stock Y pipe
Stock Exhaust system
Untuned (stock svt tune)
Ebay cone airfilter on MAF
Factory E1 wheels with regular ol street tires @ 25psi
The only "advantage" I had was a temporary "cutout" I had after about 6 passes. The previous owner used one of the cheapo flexpipe sections to connect the exhaust and the car wheel hopped so bad that it broke it in half. So I had an open dump exhaust about under the front seats for the remaining few passes.
Best pass of the night:
14.6 @ 95.12
Not too shabby right? I know that it would pick up some power and driveablility with a decent tune. This car is like an on/off switch at 3750 when I assume the PCM gives the thing some timing. I'm using the Escape intake so the tune for the SVT intake setup is definitely lacking.
