There is no HUGE difference between a zetec and duratec. You re-ground the battery, re-ground the engine...either find an existing little ground or make a new one from chassis to block, then do the alternator.

When i made the big three for myself and others I used Copper terminals...Pepboys or autozone and 4G wire . They look good and you can use solder instead of crimping the wire. better connection. I wouldn't use Home Depot ground wire because it's for household and the resistance is not the same as it would be for automotive.
