what ZX3\'s have the 2.3 duratecs

just what the title says...was curious what ZX3 has the 2.3 duratec in it....I'm extremely pondering about trading my 05 zx3 for a 2.3 zx3...

Think it's worth it, I have very little mods on the current vehicle and only 7000 miles, well maintained just dirty as hell. thanks all.

There is no 2005 2.3 Duratec equipped ZX3.

A 2.3 equipped ZX3 was available in 2003 and 2004... 2003 was sold in green states, and 2004 had slightly broader availability. The trick is to look for a VIN number like xxxxxxxZxxxxxxxxx

...the eight digit is a Z, and a Z is a PZEV, which in 2003 and 2004 means a 2.3L Duratec.

The only 2.3 Duratec in the '05 models is in the ST (sedan only). All the rest have the 2.0 Duratec.

You'd be better off looking for a motor from another 2.3 Duratec to swap in, or find an '03 or '04 hatch with the 2.3.

Haha @ CrUziN4L, see I know when I'm asking a legit question lol...

So the 2.3's are only PZEV huh...that kinda sucks but still very worthy of searching for.

As for selling my car, it says in my first post "pondering" about getting the 2.3 in a ZX3..I start with the idea, ponder, make a plan, ponder, then take action!
