  • Idea from insanity?

    Anyone ever think about finding a wrecked rear ender taurus with a 3L, and a V6 contour/mystique with a blown engine as donor cars to turn a 4 banger into a monster? I came up with this demented idea the other day and was laughing the whole time thinking about it.

        If you want to spend the money, yes the Zetec can be a monster.

        A used V6 Contour: ~$2000
        3L: ~$1,500 (w/ tune)

        So w/ $3,500 you could make the Zetec a decent sleeper.

          with 3.5k you could have a zetec running laps arounda tuned 3L.

            No doubt about it, problem is you have to custom fabricate pretty much everything, or work your way up from Focus or I4 Cougar parts.

            And there is where you would start.

            Pick up a universal piping kit, some lines and what not and custom build that ******.

                Damn. I wish I had the money to get that thing right now!
                See, you think I give a . Wrong. In fact, while you talk, I'm thinking, "How can I give less of a ?" That's why I look interested.

                        That's how I'd do it. I'd prefer to have a professionally rebuilt Zetec with components designed for reliable intercooled turbo or supercharging.

                          Everything is on hold until I can get all of my insurance crap sorted out. (My apartment was robbed in August.) I did take a bunch of new pictures a week or so ago. I'll have to get 'em posted. ;)

                              i much prefer the zetec over the v6 duratecs. the zetec is very capable of very great power output. not having aftermarket parts doesnt bother me. for $3500 you could buy everything needed for a turbo set up and push the limits of a stock motor. and if you know where to search, you could even build the motor up and be making lots of power.
