Zetec vs. Duratec

What do you think? Especially those who have experience with both.

Duratec all the way and there's a very simple reason no timing belt. My brother has 260,000 miles on his the engine itself no issues. They are damn near bulletproof engines. I have four of these engines in my family. The 2.0x2, the 2.3, and 2.5.

How do each respond to mods comparatively?

What are you trying to do? I have only done mods to the 2.0. The 2.5 will kill the 2.0 when it comes to power. The 2.0 needs a turbo to make anything worth a damn.
The SVT focus has a good engine, I would mod that one.
