Zetec Build

Hi guys,

I have a Zetec silver top bare engine already.
Don't want to get a doner car as no room for it etc.

I have a brand new black top inlet manifold complete with injectors and sensors etc.
Black top ECU and wiring etc.

Question is, would it run ok??
Wiring is no issue etc as I do this for work.

Yes it will run fine. Blacktop ecu = blacktop sensors.

By that I mean maf, tps, air and coolant temp.

The rest should be fine.

I've done it both ways and seen them through Iva.

It will top out around 135~150bhp depending on breathing mods.

Can you get the inlet manifold to fit the chassis and the steering column link.

Westfield produced a nice air box for there factory oem setup.

Fantastic!!! Top man!!!

What breather mods would increase the standard BHP?

Chassis will be fine, or should I say on CAD it is lol

Arrrrrrr you mean going the carb root?
That was a plan to go after IVA emissions etc.

No, Oem injection. But to release the full 165 ish the Zetec is capable of you would need to ditch the Oem ecu.

No cross purposes here.

Increased breathing abilities with four branch exhaust and a plenum or throttle bodies all run from the Oem ecu will give around 150bhp.

To go beyond this will require a flexible solution like a mappable ecu.
