Actually, I think you'll actually find that the ZX2's will have the Tokicos and not the McPhearsons.  And the S/R's (from my understanding) were supposed to be equipped with the Centerforce stock.

This is my understanding and therefore my signiture applies.

You may be right, I may be right. I know for a fact that the 99 S/R had the Centerforce, not 100% on the 00 S/R.

Well, if you only have $750 to spend here is what I would do

1. OBX header $165 on Ebay
2. 2.25" CAT back w/ hi-flow CAT $350 from TruBendz
3. standard burn SCT $270 from LaSota Racing
4. UDP $50 from ZXTuner

Those three things will hold you until you get some more money, make sure which cluth you have

Then throw in the Hi-Tq CAMS $400 for a set + $100 for the shims

Wow, I know this is my first post on this site, but I wanna know what happened to all the knowledge on TeamZX2. Cams=45hp? UDP=12hp? And the ZX2 can't be turbocharged? As far as I know the best UDP is powder's and it dyno's at about 5whp not 12. And I've seen quite a few turboed Z's, but good luck tryin to fit a supercharger in our engine bay. Well, anyways, good run at the track for a noob.

Sorry if I sounded like an ass, I was just tryin to point out that you shouldn't give out false information. Plus, I know if Vit saw that he'd have something to say.

Oh, absolutely. Some people balloon their numbers.  A supercharger is in the works from SEAM and Jayco is looking to create a manifold to use the Jackson Racing S/C.

I can tell by some of the post here that some members are just throwing up numbers and ideas and don't really have a working knowledge of what to expect when modifying a Zetec.

You've got an excellent start with the S/R pacakge plus the equal length shorty header and 2 1/4" exhuast.

From here look to purchase a Powder UDP. 5WHP gain for $85. Considering you have a 00 S/R with either the CWQ3,XGH3 PCM I would look at purchasing a SCT X2. You will gain a few more whp and will set you up with a great tuning program for later down the road. CWQ3 or XGH3 still have much to be desired in terms of Ignition Timing.

From there call Rob Green @ ZXtuner and he should be able to spec you out some great camshafts for your S/R. Anywhere from a mild street cam to a wild .418 LIft Street cam. At this point stay away from the Race Cams, you need large compression to make up for that duration that they use.

Some will recommend a Ported IM  with a BBK or FC throttle body but these mods will not benefit you greatly until you have a CNC'd Cylinder Head. That's when the type of Intake manifold/Exhuast Manifold you use really start to play a factor.

Those 3 items should fit in your budget. Vitally on TeamZX2 can supply you with a SCT program and X2 for your S/R with or without VCT depending on what you do on the exhuast side of things.

Depending on Cam Choice, 146-150whp would be my educated guess.
