my car has its mot tommorrow, and before it goes in, i thought i would check it all out.
The previous owner had problems with it, where it was overheating all the timeand in november had to spend over two grand on having a replacement engine (another x10xe) put in it by a 'local garage' i does look like it has been bodged tho... there is what looks like a de-cat pipe in the centre section of the exhaust, and there are a few things that dont seem quite right, especially the price. also, im not atall convinced that the engine has been replaced atall. are there any ways i can tell that the engine has been changed? the plug on the sump looks a bit fecked there is no sign that the bonnet has been removed. all the engine mount bolts look mint. Where are the engine numbers on the head and block? should they corrispond with each other?
