Yes Silver_SVT, you got very lucky. When i bought a 02 CD Silver SVT from craigslist for $1,500 last year, it had holes in 3 pistons and 6 out of 8 intake valves broken off.
I never took that head to any machine shop because it's scrap, just the cams are good, but yes, you got lucky.

I always tell even to Zetec owners, take a peak at the timing belt once a year or whenever you hear unusual sounds coming from there.

So get the stock head gasket and set of ARP head bolts, they cost more but are reuseable unlike the regular TTY head bolts and good luck.
