Even if it means putting a new motor in it, which wouldn't be bad since I get employee pricing. The only way I'd ever get rid of it heaven for bid is if someone hits me. I'm sure an insurance company would total it out over a door ding lol.

spi or zetec?

I'd only be surprised if its an spi. the zetec is more reliable than your mom, im running 10.5:1 CR on my 171,000 mile block and it still blows 205-215 psi compression. nuttin like a good ol iron block to keep a car movin but the 4f27e is a different story, my first one went to 163k before it busted the front seal and started having solenoid issues every once in a while... still a pretty good trans I guess, it coulda went to 180k.

I cant believe your thermostat housing lasted this long.
