ti-vct conversion?

Is there a way to make a 2.3l duratec ti-vct? I know the fiestas 1.6, is a duratec and has it.
And would it be worth a conversion? Power/mileage improvement?

vct is the gayest thing ever made, not sure why you would want it. especially if you saw how many vehicles with vct issues come back to the dealer

TI-VCT (twin independent variable cam timing)

The twin independent VCT system allows variable control of intake valve closing which optimizes combustion at full load providing improved power and low speed torque (broadening the torque curve) which enables variable valve overlap which provides better fuel economy and emissions and provides optimized cold start operation with improved exhaust emissions.

some of the duratec engines have variable valve timing, yours may already have it.
