This isnt your everyday Ford Contour. I bought this 1996 Ford Contour January of 1998 from North Brothers Ford. My original intent was to just do a few minor mods like wheels, tint, exhaust, etc. As the years went by, I loved this car so much I couldnt possibly get rid of it. I figured it was time to get serious and let the modding begin.
A few of the big modifications worth listing are:
1999 3.0L 24V Duratec longblock
Forged Aluminum Ross Racing 8.5:1 pistons
Forged 4340 Chromoly Pauter Connecting Rods
1mm overbore and balanced crank
Clevite 77 and Federal Mogul bearings
Arizona Dyno Chip Turbo Kit
-Garrett T3/TO4E ball bearing turbo
-Spearco 700 cfm Water/Air intercooler
-321 Stainless steel turbo manifolds and collector pipe
-Reflashed PCM from Jerry @ SCT
-Water resevoir and pump
Walbro 255lph fuel pump
Ported and polished 3.0L heads (3 angle intake, 4 angle exhaust)
Mondeo ST220 3.0L valve springs
2000 SVT lower intake manifold
BAT Electric Waterpump and controller
3.0L Valve covers
Custom 3" Mandrel Bent Magnaflow Exhaust
Dual mode dampener
Bulldog Box Transmission
-Zetec 3.82 final drive ratio
-Post 2000 shifter forks
-All new bearings
Fidanza 11.5lb Flywheel
SPEC Stage III clutch
Driveshaft Shop Stage 2 axle shafts
SVT front and rear motor mounts
Energy Suspension polyeurathane inserts
Apexi AVC-R boost controller
Ford Lightning 80mm MAF
Lotek gauge pod
Autometer mechanical boost gauge
Autometer electrical oil pressure gauge
Autometer electrical EGT gauge
1500 degree 100' x 2" header wrap
364 whp, 410 wtq @ 16 psi...Run was cut short at 4700 rpms due hitting 13:1 air/fuel mixture. The good news is, it was making these numbers at only 4,700 rpms. If the pull would have been made to redline, easily a 400 whp pull seeing as how my hp numbers were slightly greater than my tq numbers on every pull.

YOUR MADE SVT LOOKS LIKE MINE
Sweet Contour!! I'm curious, where did you get an SVT bodykit for the 95'-97' fit? 5 Stars, Keep us posted on any new mods or work you do on your ride.Cheers!!
Sweet SVT, looks like you have alot into her. I had a 95 SE for like 9yrs as a daily driver. It was a great car, never had any real major problems but i decided to change it up a little and bought this SRT4, which came pretty well off stock. Your car is a great example of the potential that the older SE's have. Keep up the good work.
Hi i Just got a 95 contour gl i just want to kno were i can get a body kit simular to this one at all the ones i see are to low and i will distroy it going over speed bumps
Nice Tour!! My car's long lost sister!! LoL 5*!
