Please don't take this the wrong way but why bother? An st170 isn't that fast, the engine is heavy and really nothing by special, I understand an engine conversion is s cool project but you got to pick a better engine than that, for the gain of 40 hp the downside will be lots of work and worse handling, why not consider a 2.0 Zetec if money is a constraint (lots of parts available and you can go turbo/charger/NA with good results, or you could go 2.0/2.3 duratec these would be a much better start, an st170 engine is a step backwards,
to the steel workers of america: keep reaching for that rainbow!

Fairly easy to get 200bhp from a 2.3 I4 engine :) Massive torque too :crazy:/>
