My girlfriends car just broke. Need to replace the engine. Seems to be much easier to find a DOHC engine. Will the DOHC engine bolt into the engine bay and will the DOHC engine bolt to a SOHC automatic tranny?
I was wondering the same thing concerning the one I have now and heard that nothing really matches up to it besides the 97-99/00 2.0 SPI. You can get away with putting a 9?-96 1.9, but you have to convert/switch a few things. The zetec is apparently a pretty rough conversion, which is a shame because they were much easier to find.
All of my knowledge on the matter is 1 week old, so take it with a grain of salt.
