Pulled an all nighter and got it all done.

Me and a buddy did the whole swap in about 16 hours.

Started right up and runs perfect with no CEL! Woo Hoo

One issue after it ran for a bit, my brand new alternator bearings went out. Now got to replace the alternator while engine in car, UGGG!

Anyone needs any advice let me know. I know it like the back of my hand now.

One more thing for anyone doing it. Get the key for the Zetec computers car your using. You will have to take your key hole out and pull off the black ring with a plug going to it and then stick the key that matches the computer through the whole and you can tape it up and put it back together. This will allow you to start the car with your key that fits the ignition hole. Then you can drive to the ford dealer and put the ring back on the ignition and have them program your keys to the new computer.

One more thing, AC compressor does fit if flipped. Lines were so tight that I decided to get the Zetec AC compressor. You will save yourself a big headache just getting the Zetec AC compressor.

Have fun and good luck!
