      With aftermarket conrods and/or aftermarket pistons you should budget for a crank re balance. Whenever these components are non stoc a rebalance must be done or vibration etc will kill the engine. Regards TH

        Actually that was already in the plan Terry. I know a guy that runs a top notch machine shop who builds amazing motors for some of my mechanic friends at work who drag race and run circle track. Once I decide on everything I'm going to tear the motor down, clean everything up and bring this guy everything to balance the rotating assembly.

          Have you thought about just blueprinting the 3.0? I think you would see killer power with a blueprinted one.

            I'm guessing he had a set of the gears that Quaife builds for our MTX75... very spendy, linky. Convert that to USD and it'll cost you $2,638.84 not including shipping to the US.

            If I blow my tranny down the line, that is what I most likely will go with.

                If they are an excellent shop and your ordering custom parts, it may be of benefit to discuss it with them.
                If you can design the bobweight of the rotating assembly together, it can help balancing cost.
                I would definitely discuss it with them before you order, they may even get better prices as a shop than you can on your own.
                BTW, I have custom Diamond pistons now (Weisco before), I'd recommend either, but Diamond more based on actually dealing with them direct.
                For a serious turbo build, use the upgraded wrist pins (tool steel) and better rings (Hellfire)--I can give you a contact I ordered the Diamonds from.
                Good luck man.

                  Yup. I discussed wrist pins with Ross Pistons when I talked to them about ordering custom pistons. For $25 a piece for the upgraded wrist pins it's good insurance.

                  If you don't mind please do PM me that contact info.

                      Yeah, no , I'm talking about bobweight (you know, the thing you use when balancing) and how he can save some money/difficulty in balancing when he orders CUSTOM piston/rods.

                              I think with everything it ended up around $250 shipped. You just got to know where to look. If you pay more then that your paying to much. However unless it has work done to it. For example I am sending mine out to get extrude honed.

                                Intake comparison

                                OK well I'm going to let the cat out of the bag. The ST220 intake is no different then the standard Mondeo intake manifold. As a matter of fact after talking with the UK guys the only difference (engine wise) between the ST220 and the standard Mondeo are three things. Completely different exhaust, different intake air box, and transmission. That's it, nothing more, nothing less. So moral of the story, don't get suckered into paying insane amounts of money for a "ST220" intake.

                                Now that said there are clear differences between the US version 3L intakes and the UK 3L intakes volume and port size for example see below. This is a 2005 Ford Escape 3L UIM and an 2005 Mondeo 3L UIM.
