danvhp Never mind. I am going back and grabbing the throttle body off the car I got the harness from. That should be the last piece I need to begin the swap. Going to start this weekend. Anyone want any pics in particular?

TheGlassMaker I have a spare zetec throttle body but I can't remember what year it is. I will get a picture when I get home.

danvhp The 2002 Zetec motor I purchased has a rectangular connector at the firewall on the passenger side and the 2003 wiring harness has an oval connector. I took lots of pics before I went to get my harness so I could grab all the other wiring I might need. The 2003 Zetec fuel injector wiring harness went right on the 2003 motor with only the TPS on the throttle body having a different connector. Anyone have an 2003 Zetec throttle body for cheap?

TheGlassMaker Sorry I missed the post. I rarely post on any car forums any more. Only picture I had was in bunched into a box. You'll need new coolant lines, a few vacuum lines, the coolant pipe which I have if you need one. I think I still do anyways.

danvhp No one was able to provide a pic of the harness needed to do the Zetec swap, so I am uploading the pic I took today. Right now the tally is: $200 2002 SOHC FF SE model, $300 for complete Zetec engine and trans, $45 for 2003 wiring harness and computer.

danvhp Does anyone have a pic of the full harness needed to make this swap? I picked up a cheap SOHC that has the famous valve seat problem. I want to be sure I have all the proper wiring when I go to do the swap.

stanarinze Hi all, I'm presently doing a swap for my ford focus 2007 sedan with a Sigma 1.6l to a zetec engine. I've completed the swap but the car won't start. Please can anyone give me pointers as the brain box wouldn't communicate with the computer to at least determine what the trouble is?

WWAZman Meh...looked at the one in the junkyard..looked ravaged by someone else and i had no clue how to disassemble it so i left it alone.

TheGlassMaker Yes. Unless you have the keys and lock cylinder from the zetec.

I had mine done for $60 but I've heard others as high as $100. I would call around first.
I'm getting ready to finish mine. I have the original keys to the car with the sohc engine, the engine has been replaced with a dohc zetec and ecm and harness have all been changed and swapped.. do I still need to have the keys reprogrammed?
