Both are new and fuel injected. Is one better than the other? Which one would you put in a very light car. And how are they different from US models?

I don't know much about the new versions of the Zetech engine but this is the powerplant I was hoping Lotus was going to use in the Fed. Elise. The thought of a Ford powered Lotus brings back memories of the great Lotus- Ford sucesses of the 60's. It would have been inexpensive, easy (from a reg standpoint) and had alot of marketing miles for both companies.
I agree the 2.0 Zetec is terrific, that is what I have in my Caterham 7 and am very happy with it. And if I blow it up, another one is real cheap and easy to impove. Good torque easy to tune, parts are reasonable from Ford.
