Lawrenceeeeee Would the 2.0 DOHC Block fit the 2.0 SOHC engine? I would believe so since the cylinder head is mainly whats different correct? If so these are way cheaper and could get my hands on this.

mikebontoft Welcome.

I hate to be the person that says this because I've done the same thing with other cars, but the engine makes this one a bad car to flip (because of the bad valve seat as you mentioned). ANY used engines around are snatched up and are usually at least $1200. Any blocks sold by themselves without the head probably had the same issue. My block was reusable, but I got rid of it.

Block and Cylinder Head

Whats up guys. Im new here. I bought a 2003 Focus Se VIN P from my buddy that was having trouble with his engine for 400$ and figured ill make a profit out of it. After buying it i read up on problems before i tore it out and found that the valve seals like to fall into the cylinder head and cause a little damage. Well this is exactly what happened with this car and the piston is blown into pieces and the cylinder head aswell as the block are destroyed. I was wondering if anyone could point me in the right direction as to of where i could buy these. I searched ebay but i dont find the right vin and when i do its the crappiest looking block ever.

If anyone could help me out it would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
