    Where can i buy an engine?????

    Decided not to put an XE or a LET in my car now due to the cost's of fitting and the age of the engine's themselves...

    I want to fit an Ecotec.But were can i buy one?? If there is a company about that deals in engines from wrote off cars etc then they don't advertise very well.

    After either a 2L, 2.2L ,Z let might be considered.Also box and all the bits..Any ideas???

    What engine have u got at the mo? If you decide to go for the 2.0, why not consider the 1.8 16v coz it is actually quicker than the 2.0 coz it has a close ratio gearbox, or failing that, wud deffo choose a 2.2

    Lol at Tundo

    Andrew i've heard that about the 2L so it might have to be the 2.2 or the ZLET mate.I've driven the 1.8 and to be honest it's nippy but if i'm gonna do all this i might aswell make it worthwhile Oh and i've got a 1.4 16V.
