Not even remotely close to worth it.
You can get more overall power gains from a $1000 3L swap.

I Strongly suggest you do a lot of research!

so what can i do? i didn't think it would be wise to install a supercharger or turbo on a motor with that many miles. so a 3L swap is better?

Thats cutting it very close there, make sure you factor in the other things that come along with that. 3L + Turbo for under 5 grand... NO way!

Its not worth dropping any money into an engine with that many miles on it. If you want it to last, you better drive it like grandma.

If your building a racer, then do some research. Get yourself a 3L, rebuild the tranny (LSD a must)... Do exhaust and suspension mods.

Hmmm, I dont know... Whats your budget?

absolutely. Timeless420 on here did a 3.0L swap with basically the same components your thinking (i.e. pnp heads, 11.5:1 compressions pistons, etc) and he made 236.7fwhp, 219.1fwtq. Btw, if your gonna spend $5000, do it right the first time and ditch that crappy jet chip and get a chip/Xcal from ADC or an Xcal from brendpseed.

I'm certainly not an expert, check out the 3L pages...

The SVT Contour's only came in the 2.5L V6. When they are talking about a 3L they are talking about a 3L Duratec from another Ford, like a Taurus or Escape, etc.

It'll also need the heads, cams, etc. attached. That's why it's a short block. Not trying to be insulting, just making sure you don't expect to just bolt it straight in.

thx a bunch 4 da help y'all. Cos d body of my contour is still in 9.5 outta 10 condition, decided to do a basic rebuild. the only extras are msds headers n y-pipe. it already has a KKM intake system with dual 2.5 magnaflow exhausts. i'll just have to be patient again till i can come up with a couple grand to purchase a vortech SC.
