96 Zetec is dookie compared to 01. There are also a lot of differences in the wiring that you really don't want to dive into (sensors missing, in the wrong place, etc). If the short block is bad, you can swap that, but you really want to keep the head from your 01. If the head is damaged, see what it takes to fix it. And remember: Always use new head bolts.

GLHF!
