Thanks, took a long time but am happy with the results and it still has a lot of work to go.

Are all 3 Zetec motors? teh ZTS should be but not sure on the se or the other. you will want to work with the Zetec obviously over the spi. The Zetec can rev to 6.5k all day long, and you can start in 2nd from a stand still. I often get stuck in traffic and the stock clutch is light so it wont be body building your left leg. the slight down fall of having a manual in traffic is made up for the response. While I cant speak on the auto after tom's tune I know that its still a bit of a let down. the focus with a manual, the bolt on's mentioned and the suspension and tune really make it a fun DD that does not remove any of its driveability.

Yes all 3 of them are zetecs thankfully.

Is it easiest to remove the engine/trans by just dropping the sub frame? I don't have a lift but i've done it with a saturn before and it made it pretty darn easy.

No need to drop the sub frame. I pulled my motor and trans from below and just pulled it out on a piece of carpet.
