Erm.... where have you guys seen a set of second hand tapers for sale? - let alone at £400 or £600????
I'm looking for some so if anyone can point me in that direct please.......
jonix - I've got all (ok bar the fardon crank) parts you're talking about for my engine. Matt and 16V have given you realistic prices, however the second hand bits don't come up all the time so maybe a case of take what is on offer.
What car is it for and what do you intend to do with it?
I'm making a choice between buying an engine that's basically got that spec but additionally with MBE loom, ECU and part of a dry sump (asking 5K - seems a bit steep to me) or buying the parts and doing it myself. I'm sure that the crank is unnecessary - looking to set the limit at 8.5K for occasional use.
Matt & Rob - you're both whores!!!!!!!!!! Let me know if you see some more up for grabs please.
jonix - 5k may sound a lot but it's not really.
pukka dry sump kit will sett you back £1,200
MBE & loom - probably £750+ (is that right lads??)
Also you've missed loads out, like:
air filter back plate,
fuel pressure regulator,
full decent gasket set,
coil pack & leads,
various other bolts,
etc etc etc.
Does the 5k engine come with a gearbox? (LSD?)
TBH 5k is too much as thesed engines second hand loose lots of £'s, but to build your own it's gonna cost over that.
