That motor plus a couple K03's or T25's would be the ****. Possibly preferable in my warped mind to an LSx swap.

yeah, but if u look on his web site u can see how tight the headders are, i think it would be tuff to fabricate a set of turbo manifolds for that thing...

pluss u should see how he had to do the oil pan.. doesnt look like a real good setup..

did he say what ECU he is running? I've been told those motors are extremely sensitive to tuning and 1 point on the afr gauge is +/- 25 ft-lbs in some locations. Some dyno time with a megasquirt might prove to be worth wild.

yeah, that was the base motor for the btcc mondeo. Apparently that motor is a ******* screamer when its tuned, hopefully the headers are done right.
