Swapping 2000 zetec to 2003 zetec

I have a 2000 zetec in my focus right now with high miles. Am i able to swap a 2003 zetec( Low miles) in place of it with out changing anything else? Also both motors are from a 5 speed.

Thanks

Both motors should be exactly the same.

Sounds like they should swap pretty nice. I know the Throttle Position Sensor design changed somewhere in there, but you will be able to choose which type you want if you have both motors.

Also, check what Intake Manifold you have on your 2000 motor. If it is the early design (single peice) Awsome! Port it, and swap it over to the 2003 motor while you have the motors out. Changing it while it is in the car is a pain. Porting the IM would pay off if you ever get a 65mm Throttle Body on there (Recomended).

both engines are the same. if you plan on keeping the old engine you may want to swap throttle bodies and intake manifolds between the two to avoid any problems hooking everything back up.
