It has to be a focus oil pan and the pan has to match the oil pump and pickup. So it as to be all focus 2.0 stuff or all focus 2.3 stuff you can't mix n match.Do the oil pump, pan, pickup have to be from a 2.0 or will a 2.3 work as well?
YesThanks for the great info. Is the oil port that needs plugging feeding the VCT?
The main journals are the same and the rod journals are different. you can put a 2.3 crank in a 2.5 block or a 2.5 crank in a 2.3 block with the right piston rod combo.I thought 2.5 crank & 2.3 crank where different? I know rods are. But to get it to stroke from 2.3 to 2.5 I was thinking crank & rods.
