Sounds a silly thing to do since the ECOTECs are basically a pants Euro friendly version of the XE but......
I am after an XE engine.
I have access to a zero milage ECOTEC.
There are plenty of cheapish XE Calibras.
How difficult would it be to whip the XE engine out of a Calibra, replace it with a mint ECOTEC (and sell it on) leaving me with a free XE to play with.
Obviously won't be this simple but anyone tried this before.
Suspect lots of ECU problems arise, although I may also be able to obtain ECOTEC ECU? (don't need XE ECU since will be going 3D mappable route)
