    On the hunt for a new
    Best 4 pot bang for buck is the zetec.

    Ran one in my xr2. Standard bottom end.
    Ported and polished head, piper cams and R6 bike carbs, straight through exhaust.
    Made 250bhp on the rollers with megajolt management.

    Bought the base engine for 150 quid from a scrap yard.
    Head was 300
    Cams 250
    Management was couple hundred
    Carbs were free but the manifold was around 200 quid from bogg brothers.
