I own a 2003 Focus LX with manual transmission that a prior owner put a Zetec into - and from the paint marks on the engine, I think that engine came out of a wrecked 2000 Focus. The only way you can tell the swap was done is if you know the LX never came with a Zetec, or you plug into the engine computer and compare the VIN in the engine computer with the VIN on the dashboard.

It's a shame that Ford didn't put the Zetec into all of it's Focuses of those years.
