I like this page for some reason...
A 2.3 Duratec Balanced, Blueprinted, 8.5:1 compression, $1999US(short motor)
Or the 2.3 Duratec Balanced, Blueprinted, 11.5:1 compression $1999US
Thats about $2.6k aud. How much import/freight charges would this cost anyone know?
Wonder if you could exchange the stock 2.0 dura bottom end with 2.3 short?
Even if cost 4.6k all up, with the 8.5:1 add another $5-6k for some forced induction, preferably a supercharger than a turbo just to be different and keep the cost's down...darn make a good upgrade, get all the torque back that I miss from my old ute.
Then maybe I could get some number plates that say 170KW and give that ST170 badge some real street cred!
Now wheres my mate the bank manager.
