Standard zetec head will typically flow around 170bhp max at atmospheric.. most throttle bodies are large enough to enable that flow. Installing them requires a lot of work, have a search around, it's been covered before for sure.

 

 

ECU's - they're all 'normal'. PATS can either be inside the ecu or outside (in a seperate box).

Yes, it's a fully tuneable aftermarket ECU. You can tune it yourself but the success of this depends on your knowledge and ability to tune engines. It's not Need For Speed Underground.

 

Paying someone to do it for you can vary, anything from £200-500+, which also depends if you need them to install it too. There's very little to gain on a standard engine, but with throttle bodies you'd be looking at around 160bhp with a decent exhaust system.
