Why would you want to put webers on your engine. All they will do is drink fuel and be noisey, would be a lot better with bike carbs or injection.
Who agrees with me ?

Do some research, but You will be very disappointed.

The reason bike carbs came about in the first place, Dcoe Webbers on a Zetec or any other 16v engine.
The progression between the idle and main jets isnt best suited to the multi valve engine. You can get the 152g five progression hole 45s but there still very expensive and hard to get working at there best.

Of course you maybe a carb guru I was not.

Having already got a programmable fuel and spark ecu throttle bodies should be the obvious choice.

My opinion is 220bhp ish is sensible for a standard Zetec and very easy to achieve but like the bike tbs It makes more sense the more you can do for your self.

Most Of the last generation 2.0 hot hatches put out ~220bhp as standard and will do so for over 100k Miles. They use a small turbo, low boost, medium Cr.

For a Zetec, the blacktop Focus exhaust manifold lends itself nicely to the job. Small tubular runners that keep gas flow up helping a small turbo to spool faster and giving low levels of lag. Made of steel they are easy to manipulate and will with stand repeated heat cycles better than cheap stainless steel.

You can top mount the turbo, bottom mount it.

Biggest problem is heat management.

Bottom mount.
Ultra cheap. Just add turbo flange of choice. This one is a Subaru Td04





Down side, pipe work takes a bit more routing.

Top mount.







Oil supply.



Oil drain.

If it helps, I have a brand new original black top injection unit if it helps.

If you look in my photo gallery under for sale you should see some photos.

It needs a new home and I'm not after a fortune for it

Thanks
Gavin
