Guys....did they put the Duratec in the 2003?

Hey all,
I am in the market for a zx3 or zx5. I have been doing research and am wanting the Duratec engine. Because of my budget I have been shopping around for the earlier years they put the duratec in. I know not all the 2003's came with a Duratec, but EVERY 2003 I have ran accross in my area has had a Zetec...was the Duratec just a special option for this year?
Thanks in advance guys, Josh.

Im oretty sure it was standard in the "green states" and an option in states that border them. Youll probably have to extend your search and travel a bit to find the right one. Good luck!

Yes, it was an option for the green states in 03. There were 5 states I think. California was one, maine , I believe was one, and I can't remember the others. It was a 2.3 PZEV that year. I might have my old brochure, if I do ( I"ll look), it had the states listed in it. Good luck.

I know NY is one of the green states, and I think VT too. Maybe Mass is the last one?

Originally was CA, NY, and MA. Then expanded to VT and one other. Finding a 2003 Duratec in Kansas will be like a needle in a haystack, since you will have to find someone who moved there with one and is selling. You will have better luck finding a 2004.

Me, I got my 2003 from NY.
