This is what my seven goes like now after all the upgrades, taken with a phone camera by my passenger 0 to 200kph.

This is the Duratec I built its pushing 285hp @ 8500rpm and mated to my Caterham 6 speed
A great combination that I feel is better than my Zetec that was pushing 250hp and a TranX 5 speed box, it was very good but the new one is very very good.

It took a bit of tuning to get rid of the dips in the power curve with a new set of headers and cam timing done on the rollers, it now pulls from 2000 to 8500 with no dips and from 7000 to 8500 its madness.

There is tons of other things I have done and some still work in progress, It runs Nitron shocks that I have re-shimmed and some other mod to them so I could remove the roll bars and still have minimal roll when racing.

Ah i have to agree 7000 to 8500 is the madness zone, mine is pushing out just over the other side of 300bhp with a Sadev sequential.
Not an easy drive with the sequential, but miles of

I remember your Nitron article about the re shimming Chris, might be good to have it copied in the technical section on here
