i had a lunati camshaft with Comp Cams titanium dual valve springs and titanium retainers. had an forged 13.1:1 arias pistons and eagle rods, intake and my exhaust was compiled by some custom header made by a welder friend of mine and flowmasters scavenger series muffler with a turndown. 5spd. and a tune done by the same welder guy. ill try and find the dyno sheet. but man i could smoke the **** out of stock mustang gts from a dig. only thing is that i had to keep like 3 spare tires in the bed just to get decent traction. lunati has a good cam. i would rev the livin sh*t out of that truck without a problem

No its 2.3 also. i think there was also a 2.5 at some point but the current I-4 is 2.3 DOHC.

Only cams that i'm aware of for the 2.3 duratec is the crane cams and the cosworth cams. Crane cam had stopped making the cams due to a lack of demand in the market, but they have put together a group purchase over in a focaljet forums to get some more: http://forums.focaljet.com/duratec-t...group-buy.html
