???
SPI 100hp
Zetec 130hp
Duratec 150 hp
SVT 170hp

Try to get an 03-04, the 00-02's were the more problematic in general.

Most common issues in any 00-04 would be the leaky plastic thermostat housing, rear hatch wiring pinching and breaking.

I meant from 2000-2004, the 2.0 Duratec had 110hp and the 2.0 Zetec had 130. The only Duratec that had 150hp was the 2.3 right?

Bought my SVT for $2300 with 118k on it, gave it a tune up and she runs very well. Has a little issue with ghost revving and needs some body work, but other than that I LOVE this car. Other than the tuneup, all I've done is install an AEM Short Ram Intake (Even though they're pretty pointless on my SVT, basically just makes a cool sound lol) which I picked up off a fellow FF member for $60. My point being if you would like to drive something similar to a street legal go-kart, scoop up a ZX3 or SVT because they handle amazingly and even a stock Zetec has some good pull to it. Sorry to ramble on, but I hope you join the FF community soon! Happy hunting!
