Duratec vs zetec

Is the only advantage of the Duratec over the Zetec mostly displacement? Or are there more advances in design that the Zetec could never meet? Which leads to the question of: If I were to get a stroker kit, P&P heads & cams, would it be a better choice than to sell my Zetec & purchasing a later model Duratec (I live in CA, so I can pick up a 2003 Duratec used, the difference with selling my 2001 Zetec & buying A 2003 Duratec would be around $4000...And would $4000 of upgrades to my Zetec be a better choice, given that the Duratec is a better future option. And another consideration is: The competition from foreign car manufacturers will probably cause Ford to come up with another generation motor within whatever time frame.
