can i put the heads from a 2.0 zetec engine of a focus on my second gen escort(including the cams?)? IF so are most engine part interchangeable such as the headers. If not does anyone know wher i can get exhaust headers fro a 2nd gen escort (1997 lx 4-door)?

THANX -Zach :D :D

You'd have to do so much custom work to get the stuff off a 2.0 Zetec to work, you might as well just swap the entire thing on in. I think it'd be cheaper, too. (I believe it's entirely possible, easy to do, too...) There are, I think, headers made for the 1.9 by Pacesetter. Don't buy 'em. They're in the wrong firing order. Get either a 88.5-90 GT header off a first gen, or buy one of the Focus Shorty headers that were recently put on sale... Somewhere. I'm sure you can find them on multiple websites. The shorties are a direct bolt on, but don't give as much power as the GT headers, which you need to have your cat relocated and just general custom exhaust work done to get to work.

By the way, a 1997 LX Four Door is a third gen. If yours doesn't look like something like this guy's:

Then it's not a third gen, and you probably have the year wrong.

If indeed you have a third gen, you have a 2.0 SPI, not a 1.9. Most performance mods for the 1.9 still apply to the 2.0, though, in fact it has a couple more parts for it than the 1.9, due to the SPI, I'd imagine. Anyways. Happy trails.

Doubt they'd work, I believe the studs that hold hte head onto the block are in different places.

zetec and spi are two different motors. You might be able to put SPI head on the 1.9 as the SPI is just the evolution of the 1.9.

Just some aftermarket speakers that sound better, run with my stock head unit and cd changer. They kick pretty good... You'd have to hear 'em, I guess. It sounds stupid to say it, but I fool people into thinking I have subs all the time. I don't run 'em 'cause I don't have the money and they're heavy. :) Other than that, I removed the airbox deal and slapped on a cone filter... Cheaper than a CAI. Eh. So it's pretty stock, with a manual tranny. It's got new suspension though so it handles decent.
