What's the deal with being +/- '98? Also, even though they've said they'd fit, until somebody actually installs one on a newer Tour or Cougar, I'll hold off on calling PWs an option. Has it been done?

To my knowledge, a PW SC hasn't been done on a 98+ Contour/Mystique/Cougar. BUT IT SHOULD!!!

The cool thing about all 98+ Zetecs, is that they are almost IDENTICAL to a Focus Zetec. The problem with the pre-98 Zetecs is that the entire accessory drive is different, the passenger side motor mount is different (and friggin' huge), water pump, timing belt cover and routing, and the oil pump and pan is different. On the 98+'s, it's all the same as the Focus. Besides little things, fitment should be cake. Just look at Hector's JRSC install. He only had to do little stuff. Even the idler bracket worked.

The Powerworks superchargers are also starting to pop up on the Focus forum's for sale sections. Buy one and see if it works. If not, clean it up and ebay it!

I think it's going in the MTX car he's getting.

A friend of mine just got the PWSC for his '00 ZX3. Hopefully it'll be installed soon; he's scheduled to drop it in the shop August 1. Right now, it's powdercoat time for a lot of the bits and do-dads.

I'm not sure I agree with this completely. My dad has a Focus and there are so many differences between our engines. The main differences, though, are exhaust related. On the Focus, the exhaust channel in the oil pan is down the middle. On my engine, it's on the passenger side. This is why no Focus turbo's work on our enignes, because the downpipes are so different. The Focus downpipe is an easier straight shot down the middle, while mine is a snake that weaves here and there.

The main reason why yours and Hectors is working, I feel, is because the SCs bolt onto the intake side, where our engines are basically the same. My dad and I have basically the same intake manifold and our stock injectors and fuel rail is exactlythe same.

Still, it's awesome you're doing this and you and Hector are pioneers at showing the SC can work on these engines.
