 Ford Duratec 35 thrives on simplicity
From the beginning, Ford's engine designers and engineers set out to develop an all-new V-6 engine family that is “good from a functional standpoint but is relatively simple,” he says.
Engineers and developers insisted, in particular, on a highly rigid structure for the all-aluminum block and forged-steel crankshaft.
Engineers also struggled daily with design constraints that included a need to make the Duratec 35 fit in the basic space required for the smaller 3L Duratec 30, which is a completely different architecture.

 VWvortex Forums: 2.3L Focus tuned by Cosworth - Stage 1 & 2 details released
Ford only keeps a limited supply of most of them and you need an RS VIN to get your hands on them as I have heard.
In order to get the right amount of fuel in and ensure that the engine makes the most of the improved breathing at higher speeds, the factory ECU is re-flashed, a process that ensures that the engine runs perfectly, all the way to the re-set 7100rpm rev limit.
However, due to the high performance nature of this engine, a d-Power2 -equipped car is NOT street legal and therefore should only be used for vehicles that are not intended to be used on public highways.
