Lightbulb SPI to ZETEC swap

I have been reading the forum here for about 2 weeks, and have am convinced that the best route is to swap out the blown SPI for the Zetec. I have a 2002 se that came with the junk spi. I bought a whole wrecked 2002 zx3 for a donor. It was great to be able to read the posts here and feel like I have already done tis swap. Thanks for all the good info

Its in!

Thank god for this site. This swap was a breeze after reading the forums here. Had to have the keys reprogrammed..$74 not too bad. The only thing that I ran into that I didn't see here in the forums was that the ac condenser had to be swapped because the line coming off it that goes to the pump had a larger diameter fitting. Thinking that it's time to start putting a little pep in the zetec. any suggestions on what to invest in first?
