are these worth anything? I found a 02 SE w/ 110k in green for a partout for $300. Are the SPI focus's popular? Should i pass?

Passs, those engines are not that reliable, try looking for a zetec, I for one was not educated about the SPI engine and bought my car with one :( oh well I love my car either way !

Run, don't walk from an SPI. As outdated as Pintos. Had an Escort SPI and was a dog, poor mileage for a small motor, and shaked like a rattlesnake.

im pretty sure for 300 it already needs a motor swap. spi may not be the motor of the century but it really isnt as bad as its made out to beand for 300 if it runs i say jump on it now lol i dont care what anyone else says if it runs for 300 you cannot lose you can junk it for that much if you do have problems down the road. my spi focus has seen almost 100000 miles worth of 6k shifts and still runs strong and gets 30 mpg or more beating on it like that. foci are great little cars no matter what motors in them and for that price i think its a win win situation either you fix it and drive it or you part it out on FF then junk it and make your money back and then some
