Sure the zetec is a bit better, but much better?

Lets try and give the SPI a little credit. it is not the complete turd everyone seems to think.
Dont get me wrong I love seeing an old spi still on the road. Mine is at 100k miles and doesn't use a drop of oil between 5k mile changes. But it is nothing compared to modern duratecs. But has a nice little exhaust note.
