    If they had stock cams, that would make a bit more sense. If they put new cams in there, it would have bumped up power a lot I bet.

    Those sure looks like ITBs to me. Correct me if I'm wrong.

    Even when it had a zx2 head the vct wasn't even plugged into anything. Also anyone notice that when it has a focus head on it that it doesn't have coil on plug any longer. It could of had stock cams when it had the zx2 head...with hp numbers that low I just don't see how it could have all that is listed done to it and big lift cams. Especially on race gas....I've seen an all motor ecotec make more then that on their stock cams, and they are less aggressive then zx2 cams. I guess it was quite a long time ago though...

    Still though, a company as big as Esslinger making a Z with that power? Pretty weak. Especially with all the hype they seemed to be putting into it.

    yea...they probably didn't make a full effort. Either they were lazy or ford told them not to.

    I’ve heard a few rumors about this car, one that it did 10’s on nitrous, the other that it shifted at 10’000 rpm’s. Does anybody know the true number’s?

    I wonder where the car is now? Here’s a few more pic’s I found.







    Damn, that interior is emptier then my stripped out Honda Accord track car

    Dude, there is no way that thing ran up to 10,000. If it had stock cams, even with ITBs, you wouldn't have much power over 8,000.

    Yeah, like I said, rumors.

    On another note, in the second pic I posted, in front of the front wheel in the bumper, is that a side exhaust I see. I bet that would sound mean!

    I bet it would sound like shit. Mean, but like crap. LoL

    With all the high rpm power stuff they did (stupid short exhaust, ITBs, high flowing head), they must have put different cams in there. There is just no way they could make that power on stock cams.

    thanks for all the info PnP'ing the head - DaviDawg A slice for the man - CJW For being the go to guy on PnP. - rascal

    The throttle bodies are like the Weber 48's , one base with the throttle shaft connecting both . Two throttle bodies , two fuel rails all connected . The cams were probably in the .430"-.450" range with the compression around 12.5:1 , should be close to 225whp . The throttle bodies TMW or TWM , should be TWM's .

    the car red lined at 9600, it ran twm's , and the "vct delete" wasn't a vct delete, it was the pulley for the dry sump.

    I know where the car is now, and its not in one piece. Its been cut in half and put in storage.
