Hey guys, I have read the stickies and also done a little more reading on the forum but I just want to make sure of a few things.
I have a 1999 escort wagon with the spi and I want to make some more power by adding a turbo.
By reading other threads am I correct to assume that the 2.0L Zetec from the 1998-2004 escort will be a direct bolt on, with a donor car of course?
And in everyones opinion, would they stay with the spi and modify it or do the Zetec swap and modify it?
I am assuming, as with the Focus I have, that there are alot more parts out there for the Escort Zetec rather than the spi?
Thanks guys for any help you may be able to provide the noob.:)

There are more aftermarket parts for the Zetec than for the SPI but the SPI does have some advantages over the Zetec, like the SPI has a stronger bottom end. The funny thing is it seems like everybody that does the Zetec swap leaves without making a how-to so all the information is a little hard to come by. From what I understand it is pretty much plug and play with the exception of some wiring for the A/C and drilling a hole for one of the starter bolts.

There are others that will bolt in but the wiring would be beyond a nightmare. The Zetec I the easiest swap for your car.
