To be honest, don't think it is worth it. If it were 10-20 years ago I could understand. You wouldn't find much people to do a conversion anymore, and you probably would be looking in excess of £1000k for a shop to do so.

Power gains now are nothing compared to most modern day cars. Not sure what engine you have, but a swap out for a 15 bhp gain and probably 0.5 second knocked off the 0-60mph isn't worth it imo.

Id say the above post is 100 percent correct unless its having a turbo etc added which again will cost a lot more ive had zetecs etc in the past in my mk3s and mk4s  but i prefer a fiesta turbo cvh , the power of modern day cars will be better but i just like the ease of working with a 1.6 engine and the space im left with under the bonnet

If you have a 1.6 zetec just now tho its worth the change over if you can get it cheap enough
