Just bought a 03 focus has the spi with 92k on it. This thing runs really well. Question is does the engine just blow up out of the blue or does it start to run badly before it finally goes? And would like to know any ballpark $ figures to have the engine rebuilt/swapped if it does sheet the bed thanks GO PATS!!!

They generally go with no warning. Often car shut off to go into a store and come out 10 minutes later and the valveseat drops when you try to start it. Seconds count, if it begins to knock and rattle then the quicker you kill it gives you more parts left to work with at the rebuild. The difference in 10 seconds and 60 is killer in damages. No ballpark figure as each blowup is totally unique in damage amount. If you don't clean out pieces in the intake you can even blow it up twice.

Headsonly.com makes the revised head to prevent this from happening again. Super easy, just send your core back.
