V6 3.0L duratec

Do we have cars which had this motor in Australia? I see the mazda cx series had s 3.5L but can't seem to find the 3.0L variant?

    Yes the most powerful variant here - a headache to fit but a great motor

    Seems a lot of work to get 220hp .
    If i was intent on using a V6 naturally aspirated i would be going Nissan 370 Z at 350bhp stock and plentiful but i applaud the ford route

    The 2.5L Duratec was available in the ST24 Mondeo, having owned one I wouldn't bother with it revs nice but not to powerful, the 3.0L in the Mazda Tribute and Ford Escape, I tend to agree with Bonus as stated above.
    The Jaguar S type rated at 240hp is the one I am planning on using, I am a bit of a stickler for Ford into Ford and I already have the Getrag RWD transmission to suit it.
    The 3.5L and 3.7L  V6 engines in the Mazda CX9 are a Cyclone engine and quite different to the Duratec, this was also fitted to the V6 Mustang although not imported here back then.

    Thanks all
    Seems like there are a few v6 versions available from the jaguar in the 2.5 and 3.0l v6 versions. I'll start digging.
     
    Blue, what Getrag transmission fits with it? With using this transmission are any other adapters etc required?

    Sorry, ignore that. Search is a wonderful function.
     
    Getrag 221 seems to be the model?

    Hi Spud
    Why a headache to fit? Dimensions etc ?

    I had a look at a jag - (it’s been a while ) - the sump, oil pick up etc
    There is a guy in Melbourne who has done one - a couple of years ago

    I might crack on checking some dimensions tomorrow and see what comes of it.
    Would be nice if the rx8 box would work

    It’s been a while - I had a look at one out of a jag and remember it looked to be - especially the sump - very difficult

    See what you mean about that sump position. There is allot at the back of the motor like the water pump etc which pushes the motor along way forward, particularly in relation to the fly wheel.

    I’m using the Cosworth 2.9 in mine - no pain at all - but not as prolific as the duratec 🤭
