If it's a Ztec motor, first thing I'd do is replace the timing belt.

Timing belt and water pump since your right there doing the timing belt. New serpentine belt and tensioner and maybe transmission drain and fill.

Welcome!

Since the car is an 06, it has a 2.0 Duratec which is timing chain, not belt. The Zetec's last year was 2004.

All depends on what you want to do with the car. I would do suspension first, but motor mods like intake, exhaust, and a tune would also be nice to add. No need to do anything with motor internals unless you are adding boost (and even the FSWerks kits work fine on a stock motor).
