That's some pretty nasty melting. I'm surprised you didn't have more problems than you did.

I'm just hoping I didn't fry the computer. Trying to find one of them around here is like a needle in a haystack

Is there any other model that I can get a coilpack and plug off of other than the focus? There's got to be something with the zetec motor

Any Focus with the Z designation from 2000-2004 should do the trick. ZX3, ZX5, ZTW...there's got to be one in your local junkyard.
A new coil will run you about $100 ($160 if you pay list) and the plug someone said was $30. That's not too bad for new parts if you can't find used.

Standard makes an aftermarket coil for this if you can't find a dealer one. Or order online.
Yes, the Zetec are pretty bulletproof...about to roll 370k kms on mine.
