Lightbulb Zetec Swap

What would it take to do a 2.0 L zetec swap in my 01 sedan? i have the SPI and i really want the zetec engine. Is it just as simple as changing some mounts and the transmission?

zetec isn't all the great of an engine, the only advantage it has over the SPI is its second cam. Not to mention that the SPI is more reliable. Anyways, this has been discussed SOOOOOO many times before, a Zetec swap simply isn't worth your time. A duratec or SVT on the other hand would give you quite a bit more fun, especially the d2.3

Yeh if you are paying for a Zetec its not worth it. If someone gives you one, go for it. If you plan to pay for one, my suggestion would be a 2.3D

Yeah, for real. If you are going to out and swap engines, at least get one w/ balls to begin with.
