If I'm not mistaken, the 1.8 Zetec (only available in Europe/World market) uses the same head as the 2.0, they just make up the difference in displacement with narrower bore or a longer connecting rod and shorter stroke.

Regardless, even if putting a 1.8 head on your 2.0 would increase power, it would be prohibitively expensive to ship to the 'states (it would have to come from overseas.) I'd suggest looking at getting your head ported and polished, or if you're serious about adding power look at a Ford Racing head milled .04" to raise compression to ~10.5:1 (up from stock 9.6:1.)
