I can buy the c20 xe motor (refurb) for around £600.
Could I just get my mate to drop it in or would anything have to be changed on the car? Clearly the ECU would need reprogramming but would I need a tech 1 to reset it or could I disconnect the battery for 10 mins and let the ecu adapt (normally happens within 200 miles)
Any other issues you can think of? This is planned for early next year after the respray job.
