The power stats Firespirit listed are for the Vulcan. The Duratec is 3.0L, 24V, DOHC rated at 200hp and 200 ft-lbs of torque.

If you've ever seen the outside of the car, it would have an emblem on the front quarter panels that says "24 Valve DOHC" if it has the Duratec engine

That badge has been around since '95 when the first Duratec's showed up on the Ford Contour. It was a pretty neat badge so I had to get a car with another one.

As for the 99 SE, I think someone else here has one with the Duratec and I believe that particular year only had 185 hp instead of the 200 because they dropped the dual exhaust that year. It went back up to 200 hp from 00-03. I think the 2004 might be 201 hp.

I love my Duratec with the duals. Plenty of power.

I'll let the others answer that. All I have done on the performance is a K&N Filter, which boosts the hp very slightly...
