So my buddy blew the motor in his 02 windowed the block snapped the timing belt so its fubar. What direction should I go? Should I find an EcoBoost and an mtx? Or should I find a duratec and boost it? The car itself is pristine for the year and it had around 130k when it went. Just looking for some opinions.

I've seen the Duratec swap done (HTP Performance in MA did one forever ago). Boosted SVT would be the easiest, but pricey and not as fun. Duratec would have my vote. You could probably get an EB20 to swap in for cheap, but not as fun IMO.

I also bought an svt recently for 400$. Same thing happened to this car as yours. I replaced the head, Works great now.
