    Workshop manual for 2.0L Blacktop mk3 Zetec

    Hi,
    I am using a 2.0L Blacktop mk3 Zetec for building a Lotus Super7.

    I need to buy fuel line (up and down). which diameter do I need?
    I need a fuel pump (which pressure, what capacity)?
    I want to know which sensor has which function?
    Is there a build in fuel pressure regulator?

    In other words, where can I find/buy a garage workshop manual that answers all those questions.

    Thanks in advance for your advice.
    Cees

    Assuming a 135hp output and using the standard injection i'd say 6mm ID bore flow and returns - if swopping the injection for ITB's - Jenveys for example then I've upped the flow to 8mm ID on my RS2000 install which should output about 175hp.

    Fuel pump - https://www.fuelpumpsonline.co.uk/sy...017-1931-p.asp - would be fine for this install.

    What sensors are required will all be subject to what the ECU requires / needs to work correctly.

    A Haynes manual for a 2000 / 2001 will detail most of what you'll need for a Blacktop Zetec

    Hi Katana,

    thanks for your clear answer. I will get the Haynes manual.

    I have a new create engine with fuel rail and sensors already installed. Only no ECU. I assume it will be more cost effective to look for an ECU that matches the current engine. Is that a correct assumption?

    The only ecu that will exactly match the engine without modification or tuning will be the OEM Ford item......not necessarily the best choice as it will require more items from the original car that you will likely not be fitting as it monitors a lot of associated electrical systems and may default to 'fail safe' if it can't find them or it thinks they have failed! And they aren't necessarily tunable for alternative intakes / exhausts etc.
    Most aftermarket ecu's can be reprogrammed / tuned to work with any engine and / or the suppliers will have baseline programs / maps to work with a Zetec B/top and generally will work with bare minimum associated electrical requirements.
