Ya I agree you could probably save a little money by buying a used zetec and jerryrigging the computer. I just figured if I was going to spend the time to put a motor in I would want a new motor and not alot of hassles. I weighed the time vs money thing and I felt my time was worth more than the money I would save. Everyone is different and what right for one persons car may not be right for anothers. I also feel it is important to keep a car as close to stock as possible for parts availability and resale value. Just my 2 cents.
