Welcome to the club,

Bit of a stupid question really, i have seen Fiesta's with V8's, V6's, RS Turbo's, and pretty much any other engine you can think of. I've seen them in the front and back.
It all depends on your budget.
You can have anything you want as long as you got the cash.

My best advice is to go down the zetec route for maximum reliability. Either a 2.0 or 1.8.
Maybe even a ZVH Turbo if your feeling brave, but these are more expensive and less reliable.

For 200bhp whatever you decide to put in there will have to be tuned so reliability will be an issue.
Still i reccomend the ZVH Turbo conversion.
