  1. A Zetec can be run on XR2i 8v EEC-IV management, however this is not really recommended.
  2. Due to power increase, a stronger box is recommended.
  3. Due to the added weight and performance, uprated suspension is recommended.
  4. Service items that for best performance we recommend be renewed at the time of engine fitting.
  5. A 1.6 / 1.8 water pump is used with the 2.0 engine. It may be possible to use the one from your current engine.
  6. Depends on model year and variant of your car.
