'03 and '04 model years have the letter Z in the middle of the code.

Z = 2.3 Duratec (or, just Duratec?)

6 = check digit; I've seen 1's, 5's and X's, etc.

3 = model year

R = Assy. plant, Hermosillo, Mexico


2005 Focuses are all Z's, I've heard, but with the 2.0 litre.

Just looking for a car to test fit a little turbo thingy we are making.
Dan, Dan, Dan....

Why go to so much trouble? I know of a perfectly functional 2.3 in North Jersey with a 'nicely seasoned' 65,000mi motor. Perfect car, Dan - and the owner's always willing to help the cause.

Thanks to the offer but this will take a bit.
Found one local with only 13k I plan to pick up.
Just getting my fall project lined up.
Now if I can only finish my Spring project.

Someone else is planning a kit and I'm looking for a car for him too. Should be some turbo 2.3's running around next year.

I think that still puts you ahead of most married men...

Good luck with the kit, Dan. The Zetec pics looked *really* nice - keep it up
