I just need to know if i can drop a 2.0 Zetec DOHC from the same year into a SE 2.0 SOHC body and what will need to be changed other than the ECM and wiring harness. Example... crossmember, trans, etc. Anything that would need to be changed. ANy help is appreciated. THanks.

hey man, doing the same thinhg here but on a 2000.
SPI to ZETEC.
the auto trans fits all 2000-2004 SPI and ZETEC but not the manual.
Youll need the engine wire harness and ECU, youll need to wire up the fuel pump.
and most inmportant the right Engine mount to the DOHC. Bolts are about 1-1.5" apart than the SOHC.
any other thing you need PM me..

hey guys just wanted to let you guys know i just recently got done doin gthe swap heres what you need to know
any year zetec will fit but you will need the following items,
the engine trans, ECU as well as the engine sireing harness that runs along the passengers ide of the vehicle from the engine to the ecu and PCM all the way to the fuel pump also you can reuse your SPI halfshafts unles syoujust want to go to the zetecs just to be on the safe side. another thing you will need is the zetec ac condensor which is in front of the radiator. you cant reuse your SPIS i thought i could but the fittings for the compressor to condensor line is bigger so thats what youll need any questions ask. also you will need the header and intake manifold and all the engine accessories and the flexpipe form the zetec any questions feel free to PM me.

one way you could go is fastoemparts.com and rebuild the car to stock. I did a project report for my engine rebuild class with a turbo and auto trans with a reflash ECU it about 5-7 grand not including some things that a i have put on there which would take it 12 grand for splitport tuners.
