    That would depend on how much damage has been done!

    Water can be a nasty thing inside an engine.

    Have a look at this Zlet as a water pump!

    On the one above the engine wasn't too badly damaged and all that was needed was a new piston.

    if you mean the z20let on ebay i wouldnt bother at that price.. Still needs turbo and all ancilleries... etc.

    Looks like a bargain but i dont think it is... Would be a good engine to replace 1 of the same kind but it'd cost a fortune to get it working in place of your lump.

    Did water damage not write off slimshadys first engine?

    If it gets in the wrong places, it serves little puropse as an engine but that of an ornament. A heavy one at that.

    its going to be a working progress, i dont expect it to drop straight in, looking long term, around 2-3 years before i drop it in mine

    If i save £200 a month ill soon have enough but have no idea about how to do it an have to pay for a garage to do the swap whereas id prefer to buy the lump, build it up as time goes by and fit it when i can afford the insurance as im 18 at the mo
