Can't tell for certain in the picture but it looks like a VW distributor 02 that might be a good one to try. Good luck :nod:

The Duratec is newer, lighter, stronger, makes more power, and because it was widely used across Ford and Mazda has a lot of tuning options.

The Zetec was a great evolution of the CVH/SPI engine family and very limited in capacity and output options. 2.0l is the biggest it can be, and that's 130hp stock.

The Duratec was a clean-sheet design, capable of up to 2.5l of displacement, built to be boosted, and power a wide range of vehicles. It is better in literally every way.
