Trial SS1

I gather there’s someone using the 2.0DOHC (Sierra) engine - there’s a 2.3 16v version used in the Galaxy which I think might work although it’s a heavy beast and injection only.

From research, there’s little benefit of the ST170 engine over a normal 2.0 unless maintaining the VVT - not the easiest thing to do by the looks of it outside the Ford ECU (although doable).

Never try and argue with an idiot. They drag you down to their level, then beat you based on experience.
