Never done it myself but i think the trumpets you can buy fit nice and snug in the holes.

That bonnet bulge should only be on a french car like it was originally, because it looks shit.

Unless its housing a massive turbo or supercharger then its not worth ruining a car with lol

I wasnt sure on the vent at first but it looks well, will be good to see all finished.

same as putting an rs2000 lump in - can be done - but due to their weight will ruin handling and will need custom mounts etc - better off with a tuned 2litre Zetec

Iv seen a mondeo v6 in a mk3 but but as said a tuned 2.0zetec is best bet or go for a st170 engine which is basically a already tuned black top zetec, youd just need to sort out some engine mounts.
