and you did score a nice engine. I would prefer the duratec 2.3 over my zetec 2.0.
Yeah not on focus's but he is a great mechanic, helped me with my saab, mirage, dodge dakota sport, my pos blazer, and this car, he is being a gm certified tech now, so he is super busy. so he would be helping me mod this car up and my other buddy who is good with cars as well. he helped me take off my manifold and clean it.
well sound like this engine is good, and my last mechanic friend was like psh this engine is common on these cars lol he is a hater. so idc what he says he sold his stage 2 saab 9000 for a lowered integra with intake and cams with 204k. i wouldn't have. he is now selling his stage 3 saab convertable with 300 hp. he won't help me though haha.
