Thumbs up spi to duratec

i have a buddy providing the 2.3L duratec motor for $550 with tranny and warentee

i will be doing all the work myself with help of free friends

all i need are the basics to get the motor running in my car

Make sure you get an ECU, wiring harness, passenger motor mount...

This has been asked before several times. If you look up one of the other Duratec swap topics, you'll find a more complete list of what you would need.
