I don't see what your point is. For a FOCUS SPI motor from a junkyard it is $900-1700 based on mileage. Zetec and escort motors are a dime a dozen. There is a shortage of focus spi long blocks because of the valve seat problem and escort owners upgrading to the 2.0. Most of the time when the motor drops a valve seat the block and head both become unusable. So far Pep boys has not caught on to the shortage and their price is still reasonable.
