After lots of Ecotec bashing, and with an offer of a Red Top, i think i might take the plunge and go for an engine swop.
QUESTION: What sort of price should a Red Top cost ?
Been offered a 62,000 miler ready to drop in for £500.
Is this a good price, or are there cheaper ones about ?
ALSO: Risks from buying from Scrappy. Happen to notice today they have one complete with fixtures and fittings
Problem is, i would rather trust it works from a private seller than i would a scrappy without any comeback ability.
Is there any guarantees with a scrappy purchase, cos that would be a safer bet if there is. They are asking £475 for their engine and i forgot to ask.
Not able to see either engine running unfortunately as already removed.
FINALLY: Not 100% of doing the swop myself.
How much to have this done, and up and running. All problems ironed out ? Proper job like.
Is anybody out there interested in earning some dosh from this for me. Would rather pay one of you guys than some rip off mechanic locally.
Will my F18 mate to this engine ?
Thanks for any advice.
