    As long as its the Z19DTH 16v engine then its fine, there have been a couple of mods over the last couple of years of its life, but it'll still work as far as I know.
    What prices have you been quoted for the work??

    Well they have my motor in bits and they charge 35 a hour labour i think . They seem a good independent gargage and there on good gargae scheme. He said 2700 done with a engine from a refurb place. He said get a engine myself and its cheaper. He is ringing tomorrow as i said ive found some engines on ebay and what is my engine number. I will just ask straight what is cost if i supply engine. I mean i already owe money now for the removal

    To be honest, £2700 done isnt a bad figure. When the TDCI motor in my Focus went pop @ 44k miles I was quoted £3500 to get it switched for a recon one.

    I thought the guy sounded decent as he suggested getting my own engine. I will find a engine hopefully and have my beloved vec back on the road. The one iam looking at is 10000 miles and 2008 ( mine thats broke is 80000 miles and 2005. So for the money i guess i will get more life out my motor if i keep it for a few more years :-)

    Makes more sense to put it back on the road like you are trying to do. Mine was just about driveable, so limped it out of the Ford Garage and accross the road into Vx..... never bought a car so quick!!
