Engine swap for a 2000 focus, 2.0l split port engine (P type)
First of all my apology if this is a dumb question, I am new to the forum and don't know much at all about ford focus.
Here is my issue: I have a 2000 Ford focus with a 2.0l split engine (8th letter of the VIN is a P). I believe the engine is dead (bad metal sound when trying to run it and the timing belt seemed to be off when I took it apart).
The body is in great shape so I would like to see if I could find a used engine for it. From what I heard, I am out of luck because that specific engine is rare and expensive. Could someone tell me if I have any chance to fit a different engine without too much modifications?
Thank you for your help,
