Could you guys post up some vid's?
This ^^Could you guys post up some vid's?
It is where the rpm pickup on the dyno messed up. The pickup clamps around the spark plug wires like a timing light to read the engine rpms, if it gets a bad signal it will cause the torque reading to do that. It can be a pain sometimes.This ^^
Plus, excuse the newbness but what's up with the cut out areas at the top of the torque spikes?
stock ranger crankdamn. what crank is in it to spin that high?
you need a focus 2.3 front cover to make it work correctly. The 2.5 front cover will make the engine crooked in the focus. Yes on the stock ecu. You cant use the 2.5 head unless you get rid of the VCT.Ok so you are using the 2.5 fusion motor. i have been wanting to do this swap but I have a concern. Will it bolt in without fabrication for motor mounts and will my mtx-75 trans from my 07 focus sedan 2.0 bolt to the 2.5 block? Can I use my original ecu and just reflash it for the new motor?
What do you mean by front cover? Do you know if my MTX-75 trans will bolt up to the 2.5L fusion block? Now also is the wiring the same? I know some plugs will be different and I am sure I can still use my current coil packs but what about everything else? Is there gonna have to be some rewiring for certain plugs? As far as the head is concerned I guess I could just get the 2.3 head and just port and polish it and try to get it to the same specs as the 2.5 head if possible.stock ranger crank

Big plans in the works for this. New header with larger primaries and new IM with more volume. Maybe a thinner head gasket. I think there is another 30-40whp left in it. Im ready to go RACING!
Why do you need to use the Focus head? Is it solely because of the VCT? The 2.5 head is one of the main reasons I am researching a 2.5.The front cover is what covers up the timing chain and seals it all up. The motor mount also attaches there. The 2.5 also will not allow the use of the focus power steering because the belt will hit the cover.
If you want to use a 2.5, you need to use a focus head and all focus accessories with a 2.3 front cover. You also will have to block off an oil passage way in the block, when you go to the focus head.
The actual 2.5 block is virtually identical to the 2.3 externally, so transmissions and other parts bolt right up.
I honestly would probably just delete the VCT if I could. See - http://forums.focaljet.com/duratec-tuning/670630-2-0-modding-2-5-build.html
If you have anything to add, I'd appreciate it.
I have a 2.5 in my Fusion 6MT. The last thing it needs is to be biased more towards torque. Perhaps that isn't the fault of the head, but the engine isn't sporty in character. Nice mid-range punch, but it feels a lot like a stock Zetec - out of breath when you really want it to go the most.Like ford going 2.0 head on the 2.3 in the ranger. Build TQ.. So a 2.3 head & 2.5 block would build great TQ then the 2.5 head & 2.5 block. Seen a 2.5 Fusion with FSwrks satge 2 kit make 290hp / 306tq at 8psi boost
I will make a list tomorrowI'm very interesting to do a 2.5l fusion/escape swap in my '05 Focus duratec. I just want a stock 2.5l
This is possible to create a ''to do list'' with the necessary parts to swap a stock 2.5l in a focus duratec body
Sorry for my english
