He doesn't have to listen if he doesn't want to, but I believe he might be better off if he has an open mind.  Who knows...perhaps down the line he comes up with a good combination of Cam settings and would like to share what he has learned.  But if you know it all, then you don't need the forum, right?

I'm not sure if anyone has done it yet, but "Welcome to the forum SILVER BULLET ZX2"
Can\'t afford a high priced performance car?  Then build one!

For the Underdrive Pulley, Powder's make 5-7 hp, and there are dynos to prove it.  No 7-12hp.  And his is the smallest UDP made for the ZX2.

00 Ford Escort ZX2 S/R vs 99 Ford Escort ZX2 S/R
 plastic Iceman intake   <  aluminum Roush intake
       Borla muffler           =         Borla muffler
stock crank pulley          <      Ford Racing UDP
       stock clutch             <     Centerforce clutch
       CWQ3 PCM             <           NGP0 PCM
Ford Racing plug wires  =  Ford Racing plug wires
       Tokico struts           =         Tokico struts
      Eibach springs          =       Eibach springs
       Daisy wheels          <      Escort GT wheels
    205/55/15 Z tires      =        205/55/15 tires

What you need to make it better:
1. get the 4-2-1 header from ZXTuner and
 - get a 2.25" CAT back w/ MagnaFlow CAT and weld on your original muffler
2. get the ZXTuner UDP from ZXTuner
3. get the standard burn SCT chip from Lasota Racing
4. find a Roush intake w/ K&N drop in and remove the lower resonator or
 - buy the Hotshot intake from ZXTuner w/ K&N filter

Other things you can do:
1. Hi-Tq intake CAM with VCT still intact or
 - Hi-Tq intake and exhaust CAMS w/ VCT delete and adjustable timing gears
 - - you can have the SCT programmed to turn VCT sensor/actuator off
2. get a Centerforce clutch from ZXTuner
 - Fidanza flywheel off Ebay optional

least important but will help some:
1. put some 16X7 lightweight wheels with 205/45 UHPAS V, Z or W rated tires on

You do realize that an S/R has the Centerforce clutch stock right?  So that should read" Centerforce clutch = Centerforce clutch"

Oh yeah, and talk about dead thread revitalization.... lol :-D

Not every 2000 Ford Escort ZX2 S/R was equipped with the Centerforce clutch, from what I've read maybe none were. Just like not every ZX2 is equipped with MacPhearson struts, my 01 came with Tokico's.
