Thanks lads for getting back to me.i think i'll go down the pinto route cause it looks like the 1.6 and i'll get away with insurance and tax as a 1.6.Happy days
Its getting one now is the one.There like hens teeth.Plenty of 2.0 twin cams 8v but not to keen on them

The 2.0l pinto is well tunable. My dad's got one in his Westfield on twin webbers with a hot camshaft and it goes very well.

Make freinds with banger racing boys, they always know where to get them, or go to a banger meet and ask around.

Forget about the zetec mate, Look for a pinto IMO, straightg forward fit, with good power with the right mods. ;.)
