Well the major difference in the 2 heads is the addition of VCT. I dont know if you could make it work. But it is a possibility.

Just search, you can't really do it.

Well it just so happens that I bought a SVT head for just this purpose. Not really sure myself, but I'm gonna try. I actually don't see why it wouldn't. Head gaskets are interchangeable and the oil ports look the same. Only thing that catches my eye right off the bat is the cam position sensors and the part on the cam it reads. The zetec is just one nub and the SVT appears to have 4 nubs (I just looked quick, I'll edit this later).

Hey, if you get it to work, post a how too, I've heard there are problems w/ the vct even though you can do the vct delete.

Porting is easy, just take your time make sure all the ports are the same. have a good digital caliper on hand!!

Ah, but what about deshrouding?
That can have more impact that porting and you don't see it mentioned too much. Granted I just got this thing and I'll have to gander at it pretty good first, but odds are it could use some help.

I'm off to play some more and start getting some pics.
