Initially there were 90, 105 and 115bhp 1800cc Escort versions, with 115 and 130bhp 2 litre Mondeo units too. There were also 130bhp RS1800 Fiesta/XR3i variations with revised cams and re-mapped ECU’s. The hottest n/a version was the ST170 with solid lifters, steel rods, waisted valves and variable valve timing (VVT). The motor went on to power the Focus RS but in turbocharged form. Both the ST and RS engines were confusingly re-badged as a Duratec. http://www.burtonpow..._1/zetec_e.aspx try these guys they know theyre stuff.

thanks for the comment no i dont do standing starts all day in fact the car rarely breaks a speed limit with an 18month old in the rear and no im not a chav either nor is my friend who is just a fast ford nut we both work both have kids and drive almost everywhere with kids in the car so once in a while the car with no one but me in it gets to stretch its legs the only reasin it was dynod was its a friends garage and he had the thing installed i was helping him out and we stuck it on out of curiosity so i resent the personal remarks. for me debate over when it gets to personal remarks


There was not a single personal remark made. I was simply stating that people who DO blitz to 60 all the time are chavs. If you take offence to that, that's your prerogative :) It wasn't directed at you - you'd know if I was dishing out deregatory comments, I promise you! (though reading it again, I can see why it would appear that way)

The reference on that website is to the Zetec-E architecture, rather than a modified 1800cc engine; which makes sense, as a the ST170 is a 1997cc engine and has not been made from an 1800 with increased displacement!

then ill accept that it wasnt meant that way it just read that way yeah basically what i mean is since the escort gti and rs1800 is the same engine as my cars minus the remap and cams then with a simple cam and ecu upgrade if i wanted to i can up the power quite cheaply a big hike for not a lot of cash. i agree i live in chav city where every car has an exhaust that looks like it should hold a football lots of cars that look like the owners were watchin the fast and the furious on drugs and dodgy bodykits half held on with tape and low and behold 4 exhausts popping out the rear of which only 1 actually does anything and the fly up and down the road its straight and quiet and a national speed limit need i say more you always know by the ridiculous rumble of the exhausts as they race each other
