So.. Heres the deal. Instead of purchasing a 400 dollar head. I just thought about doing a zetec swap.

Heres the options I have for the engine in my local junk yard search

2.0L, VIN 3 (8th digit, DOHC), intake ID 988F- smooth seam runner
2.0L, VIN 3 (8th digit, DOHC), intake ID WS4E- raised seam runner
2.0L, VIN 5 (8th digit, SVT, DOHC)
2.0L, VIN P (8th digit, SOHC)
2.3L (VIN Z, 8th digit, PZEV)

Which one do I pick? Also I under stand I need the ECU, engine harness and what else?

I'm pretty good with doing mechanic stuff had a 91 honda civic before this car and did the alt, timing belt, water pump, brakes stuff like that. So I'm not that mechanically challenged.

Thanks for the help.
