Yes, you get a lot of torque with that as well. I actually saw a Xedos V6 in Lunnun today. Haven't seen a Ford Probe for yonks. Very popular in Scotland apparently.

Mazda/Ford Duratec 2.5 from a Ford Fusion in mine.
Did it last year, no issues, it was from a wrecked 2017 with
only 12K miles on it. Perfect!

Yes it is. Only minor mods, exchanging some parts from the 2.0.
ECU needs a reflash too.

Last few days have been spent “squeak finding” with some good results.
One was the base of the window frame inside the door, easy fix once the door card was removed. The other was the supercharger, broken bracket. Again easy enough to fix once the charger was removed.
However now I’m getting paranoid and keep thinking I can hear stuff that wasn’t there before.
