Ok, at 126k miles timing belt went and that's the end.
i'll be looking at prices to rebuilt it or change head, most valves are bent, pistons look ok...
i was going to get the belt changed in a couple of weeks... sucks...

damn bro. sorry to hear. did u take off the heads and everything to see if the valves are bent or are you just sayin the valves are bent. don't know about the svt but zetec motors are non interference motors so if the belt did snap it won't mess up the motor. just a heads up in case the svt engine is a non interference motor too. i will research and find out.

update: Brian found me a head somewhere in the east coast, it's used but complete and assamble, garanteed to work... 450 shipped to my house. hopefully i'll be driving again in a week or so.
depending on what the trade in value is i might get rid of it and get something else.

you might as well keep it since the next car will have your svt payments on it
