I am thinking on buying a 2001, and I can't remember whether it said Zetec or not (all I can remember that was written on the engine was VCT).

it doesnt stand for anything, just a code name for v8 racing engines back in late 70s and followed into 4 cyls in early 80's with ohv engines. Then around 1992 it became a dohc engine. They have been doing minor things since, mostly headwork. This is my understanding.

it is just the name of the engine, but thats my understanding of the history of the name. The duratech stands for durable technology however.
