Duratec Taper Throttle 270+bhp Kit
The 270bhp kit has been developed on our results whilst working towards developing 300bhp. Through extensive work with the cylinder head we have found it possible to produce sufficient flow Duratec cylinder head
2.0L Duratec 270+bhp kit graph

to produce over 270bhp from standard valve sizes, these are already quite large at 35mm (inlet) & 30mm (exhaust). We also found it necessary to develop a new larger intake system to cope with the demands of the head.

The tests on the dyno & rolling road showed that with the right combination of intake system, CNC worked cylinder head & our exhaust manifold that this performance level was achievable at a reasonable cost.

We can tailor the kit to your needs, email us for more information.

Bill Gouldthorpe's 2.0L Duratec 270+bhp engine

The kit comprises of new design high specification throttle bodies, injectors, camshafts & verniers pulleys, double valve springs, caps & platforms. Along with pistons & rods, fuel pressure regulator & mount along with the necessary components to achieve this horsepower with a few extra safety features as standard e.g. up-rated flywheel bolts, main cap studs, head studs & up-rated bearings.

We would also recommend a modified cam chain tensioner & either a crankshaft key way modification or a steel crankshaft.

The MBE9A4 ECU comes already programmed & ready to use, however for this level of specification we would recommend a mapping session to fine-tune the engine

Pacenotes reported on our Duratec kit in the May 2007 issue:

Renowned Vauxhall tuners SBD Motorsport of Surbiton, Surrey, have spent the last 12 months developing a 2.0L Duratec engine especially suited to the Ford Escort. The company has produced a kit which delivers 270bhp/190lbft torque with four injectors.

Pacenotes May 2007

The same set up, utilising upper & lower injectors delivered 283bhp/192lbft torque at the Track'n'Road Rolling Road in Essex recently. The kit includes a new design taper throttle body kit, MBE management system, wiring harness, CNC portwork, pistons & rods, cams & double valve springs and dry sump system.

Classic Fordincluded our Duratec kit in it's May issue:

Now that the Duratec is an option for a transplant, SB Developments have been working on tuning the unit. The company's hard work has resulted in new tuning components for the powerplant. Based on a 2-litre engine, new taper throttle bodies, CNC portwork, pistons and rods, cams & double valve springs, MBE management , plus a dry sump system give the unit a huge 270bhp & 190lb.ft of torque with four injectors - and that's natural aspiration! With eight-injectors the output rises to 283 bhp with 192lb.ft. These components are now available to purchase, with a kit set-up costing £6375 + VAT.
