Well my mechanic finally came to his senses. He called ne today in shock of spi prices. He said he talked to a junk yard he usually does buisness with and they told him if I plan on keeping the its ideal to swap in the dohc because the sohc is junk. Not only that the dohc is a dime a dozen cause nobody can sell them cause they just don't go bad. So now he researching what's involved to swap in a zetec. He won't listen to me when I tell him its just engine wire harness and cpu. Because for some reason the junk yard told him that the trans had to be swaped out too. So he won't listen to me, cause I don't know what I'm talking about. Although I told him I wanted a zetec to begain with.

If he won't listen to you, then go get your car from him and do the work yourself. Some say the SPI tranny won't work on a Zetec because the gearing is different but I know for a fact it does work. I have a SPI ATX on my Zetec wagon. Pulled it off the SPI myself and installed it on the Zetec myself.

Also you need a little more than just a harness and PCM. You will need all the acc on the Zetec. (Although I think the SPI and Zetec AC compressors seem to be the same I just need to confirm it) You need the passenger side engine mount. The fuel line from the block to the fire wall, the PS hard lines, the coolant hoses, the harness on the coolant fans, and the keys reprogramed to match the new ECU. Sounds like a lot, but if you know what you need going in, its not that bad.

Really.... that is a lot. The keys really have to be reprogramed? I got a co-worker going to do the swap for me at a flat rate of $500. He has a lift and everything. The regular mechanic wants $800+ not counting oil and antifreeze. Looks like its gonna be a couple days to gather everything up.

It sounds like a lot, but its not. Its a lot of little parts. Still at the price of a SPI you can find a zetec and all the parts for less.

The keys are programed to the ECU, so unless you have the keyes that match the ECU you get yes you have to have them reprogramed. Most of the stuff you need should come with the engine. Just make sure of it when you get it. Your other option, find a wrecked (whatever duratech or zetec) Focus and swap everything into your car.

I'd really ask around some more about getting locals to help you. Your friend isn't charging you alot at $500, but if you were here, I'd do it for beer, food, and hookers.

The only problem is all the locals with the exception of one or two all act like they are too good for one another. God for bid I try to set up a ohio meet they are too good to drive 3 or 4 hours to meet up the would rather drive to the local sonic and meet each other. They never go to any meets, unless you are local they dont really talk to you either. All of my close focus friends that would be willing to help me live in indiana, kentucky and wisconsin. In fact I'm working on a Ohio right now and I got people from new york and wisconsin saying that they want to come, not a peep from a single ohioian.

Just got the best deal ever! So I've been holding on on buying a engine util I got a mechanic willing to do it for cheap. I now have one, so I called the place I've been looking at the last week. They have 8 zetecs ranging from $350-$800 not including harness and ecu. Anyways I called for one I saw for $400, it came with a warranty. When I told the guy which engine I was caling about I asked if there is any way he could throw in a harness and ecu as a package deal. I told what I was doing and he said he knew the harness had to match the year of the engine for it all to work. He said the engines don't usually come with alternators or ac either. He asked what year of car I had. Then he told me to hold on. After a min or so he came back and said I just got a complete '02 focus in and then asked how much I have to spend. I told I could easily spend $500. He asked if it was cash or credit, I said cash. He said if you come and pay tomorrow ill give you everything you need for the swap for that. Hells yea! So ill be going tomorrow to see my new engine!! Bow chica bow wow.

When we got there they was closed!! Althought I called them twice friday to make sure they was going to be open and the engine would be ready. Luckily the front gate was open and a couple of the guys was there working on a Deloren for the owner who has two of them. So they was more than happy to help us out. I found the engine on the floor. Next to a pile of parts that they let me help myself to. I got the intake/MAF/airbox, negative/postive wires, trans harness, and lower engine cover. How ever because they was unaware of my arrival they engine harness and ecu was still on the car, so I requested them to ship it to me and I am calling tomorrow to make sure they get it to me.
