Hi guys, this is a list of my engine and drivetrain mods that I am looking at doing. there's no way I am paying this much for this, I'll work something out to knock off about $1000 off the price, but this is a starting point.

I need any suggestions I can get. I know what driving with a stage IV clutch is like, and I'll be using this car for street and track. I haven't included intake or exhaust mods yet, nor have decided what I am doing for the port polish, bore and head grinding.

i think most others would agree in refrainin from 4.06s w/a turbo setup. tom has these and i believe there comin out 2 he can push further down in the 12s, maybe 11s...

sounds good =).. i just removed the valves and camshaft and gears.. i also had to remove the intake manifold, because after further research, (reading properly), i found out that i needed a 70mm throttle body, from a mustang.. i don't want to deal with that, so i'll stay with stock.

this is already $1500 less than I originally thought =).. thanks for your help.. any more suggestions?

just get camshafts from crower after consultin which 1s will b optimum 4 ur setup...get ur hands on a early 2000 intake manifold instead 4 now, til another ally manifold comes out w/easy install, its comin soon, ctzx3 has a ford racing 1 that he and mcnews have fit 2 a zetec head w/minor mods (think chris said that he and mcnews were usin some type of riser plate 2 align everthin and 'sleeve' it down 2 a 65mm). just do the stuff in stages 2 c how the car responds, and after u have it all setup, go spend the bread and time and take it 2 some1 like turbo tom/mike the chipguy and have it tuned, buy 1 of mike's chips and toms engine management setup 4 an AC. and then enjoy. consult those guys in the FI forum, yeah their all bickerin at each other like boys in a locker room, but they'll have the keys if ur gonna go FI.

ADD-ON: i think some1 does mains/caps, bottom end stuff 4 a better price the ess, not sure. hmmm...dont think u'll end up goin w/bigger valves, think many in here r still runnin stock valve sizes, not sure bout many of the turbo guyz, but many of the NA dudes r not. mikes chips start round 400 bux.

good luck,

Thanks a lot..
I'll check with them.. i'm still doing reseach before anything, I already have this as a 3 stage upgrade, the turbo, and all turbo things coming at the 3rd stage... I'll probably end up getting that stuff done in about March..
