Cosworth Duratech

Recommended Posts

Whats the difference between a Duratech engine from Ford and one produced by Cosworth?

Do these pretty much replace BDAs but much better value?

Yes, they used a 2.0 Zetec Blacktop. Apparently, the Omex package is a good unit. 

The Duratec name can be confusing sometimes, as there was a Zetec branded as a Duratec. Think it was the St170 version maybe. 

The Zetec is a good versatile engine and there are loads available dirt cheap. 

The Duratec in the link is a  different engine though and is the more modern version used in Fords and Mazdas. Supposed to be a really good engine, but still on the more expensive side. 

Saw a video of a Supercharged Duratec fitted in a Caterham 620R and it was a complete handful :-)
