New guy

Hey all, my names Morgan, I just bought a 2002 Focus LX recently and finally decided it was about time to start learning about it. I used to own a 1991 Toyota MR2, which was and always will be my love, but after discovering that the transmission wasn't mounted(yeah, I have no idea) yet still managed to drive for some time, and after throwing more money at it than I could afford, I had to part ways, and ended up with my focus. Definitely grew to love this car, and since I'm getting ready to start schooling in the fall for automotive technology, and got a steady job, I decided that this car would be my tinkering car. I'll post pics when the weather is less crappy, or when I'm less lazy and whiny, but it isn't much to look at yet. Right now I'm looking to learn more about this car and this seems to be as good a place as any to learn. Any advice would be awesome. Lookin forward to talking and learning.

Does anyone have any advice on what I could do to this engine I have? I assume the only difference between the Zetec and the non is the head, so what is interchangeable? I expect a full list of interchangeable parts, and nothing less.
