I was wondering if the svt head can be swaped on to the zx3 block? would this be a simple swap?
would it make a difference if the vct didn't work?

I dont think the svt head will work on a zetec engine. I believe the intake cam on the svt head has variable timing and the intake on the svt is a dual stage intake so either way you will need a new ecu and probably alot of other things. Im not sure what they would be but ive never looked into it so i dont know all the details. And i would think you would want to have the vct working so you could have that horsepower. Thats like buying a supercharger but not hooking the drive belt up to it.

The ZX3 block is used on the SVT, the head will work you just have to plug the hole in it for the VCT, and get another cam gear.

But as far as i know the SVT head is about $850 with out valves, springs, retainers.
