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!
