Due to emission requirements it was phased out towards the end of the 1980s and replaced by the 2.0L DOHC engine, being a completely new design and not a twin-cam development of the Pinto engine, used until 1998. The new design is called the ZETEC, with the 16-valve version of the Ford DOHC unit still used in the Ford Transit.
