Thinking of switching to a 2.0 next year. Where is the best place to get parts(pistons,cranks,cams, etc). Any suggestions.

I've got brand new 2.0 dohc Ford Zetec engines priced at $800.dollars each plus trucking from Detroit. Ford's price at the dealer is $2200.dollars. This is the base engine for the Ford Focus and Ford Escape and is the same engine used in the USAC Focus Midget division.

There is a company in Colorado, making conversion kits to use carburetors and has bellhousings/adapters too.

Also a 2.0 Zetec engine from a Ford Contour here at the shop. It is complete with starter, alternator, computer, wiring harness etc. Price is $600.dollars and you pick up.

No core charge either. Send me an email if interested. Other four cylinder options too.

if you are wanting the older german 2.0 I believe racer walsh has some stuff. I also think that esslinger sells adi crnks for them but I would stick with the stock one. BObby

Hey Mac try Racerwalsh,Esslinger will be your best bet on a 2.0 Also I think the bellhousing is smaller on a 2.0 than a 2.3.

The 2.3 used the same housing as the 2.0 when it first came out. After a few years they added a couple holes on top of the bellhousing. These bellhousing will hit on the 2.0 head. You should still be able to find the older bellhousings. I suppose if you couldn't, you could probably cut some off the top of a newer one.

This is all for the Ford 4 speed that is common in these cars. I am not sure about all of the transmissions. I know there supposed to be a problem with the length of the bellhousing for some trannies, but I haven't had problems yet.

Oh, and I get most of my over the counter parts from Esslinger. When I've talked to Esslinger about the 2.0, they've kind of played dumb, even though that used to be their specialty. I guess it depends on who you talk to. A lot of my stuff was custom made or modified from 2.3 stuff. I am having a couple more 2.0s made this year and I will probably let my engine builder buy all the stuff. If you contact me privately, I'll tell you who my engine builder is and how to contact him.
