I just did a quick search in the vendors section. You could check the others for pricing. I have a regular Zetec, so I never had look around. Also, every single Zetec has the t-stat housing crack or leak eventually.

The cfm one is your best bet. There have been others on development but nothing has surfaced as of yet.

Check with Steve at Tousley Ford, they have the upgraded ford product for around $100. I think that includes new sensor, bolts, thermostat, and updated housing. There are several posts over the years with this information if you search it out.

Here is a quick link to one of the earlier posts about it:

Hope this helps

I have a used stock one some place, I can look for it latter when I get home , but my wife and I just moved so it might be kinda tough to find.

The housing from a 2000 contour with the ZETEC engine will work! It is the housing that Steve at Tousley Ford tracked down that is a stronger design. I just found one in a u pull it yard for $10 today!
