cant tell you of the sizes, however it could well work. Just bear in mind that you will also need to change the likes of the ECU to be compatible.

Thanks

And don't forget to count the 1000 or so Ford will want to re code everything ( which will be needed if you want it to start)

I would have thought having the head repaired would be much cheaper and easier than replacing the engine etc..

I guess it really comes down to how long you intend to keep the car? If you do swap the engine, remember get a receipt for it, you will need it for the log book paper work

£600 seems a fair price. How does the warranty/guarantee work though. does it need to be fitted by a vat registered garage for them to honor it?

i wont keep it for long soon as i get the car fixed it will be sold as im after a desiel. i will get a recipt basicly with the garantee when i fit the engine whithing 6 months if something goes wrong with the engine il get it replaced free of charge or they will fix it but thats just for part i buy so if anyother part that goes wrong which i didnt buy from the engine place wont be replaced.
