I suspect the reason no one has answered is because no one really knows because no one has actually tried it.
Having said that, I'd expect the FSZE manifold and cams to add to your output, sure. How much is anybody's guess. In the case of, say, a KLZE, changing the cams and manifold won't get you to 200HP from 164 because you haven't gotten the high compression pistons and the port volume and shapes are different (as well as PCM calibration issues...) Same with the FS: you won't get to 170HP by doing these two upgrades since there are a bunch of other parts not being swapped.
Which begs the question: If you have a line on all of these FSZE parts, why not just get the whole motor?
I went to usedengines.com and e-mailed them and got a price back for 1295.00 for the fs-ze 170hp engine.I am ready to get it but I also need to find a tranny? does anyone know if the american manual will bolt up?
