How excatly do you know that?? My friends who are mechanics, dragged it on 1/8th mile and, checked it top to bottom, and said that it looked and sounded like a ztech...How do I tell? And what additions do I need to add to make it a Ztech?

Like Jay said, they stopped making the Zetec in the Focus in '05. From '05 on, all Foci have Duratecs. You can find some Duratecs in the '03 and '04 models, but most of them are from the New England or Cali areas.

The easiest way to tell the difference is visually. Zetecs will have a Zetec logo on the valve cover, but if there isn't one visible there are two easy ways to tell the difference.

1) The Zetec engines have a distributor cap with spark plug wires; Duratecs have coil-on-plug wiring.
2) The Zetec engines have the intake on the back side of the block towards the firewall and the exhaust on the front side behind the radiator. The Duratecs are the reverse - intake in front, exhaust in back.

I know a friend that can do that paint job probably for less than $2,000 if you'd like. I can get you an estimate if you are serious about it and if you have money in hand.

Welcome to FF! Pink focus huh, that would be interesting. Ohh and the Duratecs rule, hehehe. If you ever driven a stock Zetec(Non SVT) and a stock Duratec, youd never wanna drive the Zetec again.

Only other focus owners will give a damn. the focus has performed like shit in the past thanks the the SPI an zetec engine (witch other Honda, STI, srt neons, ext owners still think that the focus still has a shit engine in them) an ford's famous retarded designs o an the name of the car too. people dont understand that the car wasn't made for drag racing an drifting, they were made to perform around corners.
