Not much you can do with those. People turbo the 2.3/2.5 lima motors, but they don't touch the duratec. I guess you could sell it.

Correct, mid 2001 they switched to duratecs. Should be a plug and play for any of those, but i'm not totally for sure on that. It'd probably wouldn't be too hard to put into an older truck if you had both years electrical diagrams so you can wire it all up properly...but sounds like too much work for me.
