200bhp zetec


Recommended Posts

my silvertop has developed a rattle in the bottom end so i am taking it out over the winter to inspect it.

i want to fit a 200bhp n/a zetec in its place.

i have a blacktop 2.0l zetec engine here too so i have a choice of parts to base it on.

The internals will be staying standard but will be arp bolted.

Im in the engineering trade so i can do little pieces myself like lightening things etc but i am looking for info or any advice that will aid my project.

Here is a list of what im thinking to get the bhp;

-Blacktop block with ported head and slightly raised compression.

-custom throttle body conversion.

-4-2-1 race manifold and system



Not sure what injectors will be good for 200bhp though?

i have rs2000 ones at the mo but i dont think they can flow 200bhp easily enough??

throttle bodied and modified st170 engine??? you could just rebuild your current 2.0 if its developed a rattle! high comp pistons maybe larger pistons make it a 2.1 with modified head , throttle bodies and decent cam package but all i know if you want a 200bhp n/a zetec engine get your wallet out for the parts because they are dam expensive!

Good point on the st170 engine. Should do 200bhp with just itb's and decent exhaust system. And an ecu/tuning. Still at least two grand really and not as fast as an rs turbo engine with a stage 1 chip!
