well I have an 06 zx3 mtx. From what i have read on the net the 2l duratec
put more power to the ground. Get the ses version with the p6 tires its worth the extra $$.

What I Drive: 2007 Pitch Black ZX3 SE MTX

I just made the jump tonight. On Sunday, my 02 ZX3 bit the big one - there was an electrical short that fried everything and caused the battery to explode in addition to the head gasket going. I took a heavy loss and traded her in on an 07 zx3 se tonight. So far, it's pretty great. I'm not loving the lack of a tachometer, but so far it's pretty great.

I went from a bare bones 02 zx3 (only option was a/c) with the manual to a nicely spec'd 07 zx3 se mtx in the same color scheme (black/charcoal) as the old one, but with a sunroof. It's pretty nice, there seems to be a good deal more power than the 02 had (well, the 02 had 72k on it when it was last driveable).

All tolled, I wish I'd done this before I sunk $1500, many hours, and my blood sweat and tears into that 02 zx3. In the end, I can at least say that while my old 02 is more useful as a storage shed right now - at least it has a good suspension, new brakes, and decent tires on it. Perhaps someone will appreciate my efforts.
