You could swap in an SVT motor, but that might get a little pricey. You could also look at the v6 from the cougar.

Well, I was going to say to swap in a blown 302, until I saw that he didn't want his wife to wrap it around a tree...

I'm toying with the idea of swaping in an M3 inline six.

The SVT and the standard Zetec both mount up to the same trannies. The SVT never came as an auto, though.
