Now the only reason its a hard decision for me is I'm 20 and started workin on my truck about3 months ago... rebuilt some of the upper half of the engine to pass smog... and rebuilt a carb. Replaced valve stem seals... my trucks pretty easy and I have come acquinted with it... to whereas the focus a) scares the piss outta me b) I don't know crap about it... c) its complicated to me because I'm so new... and d) I don't have much help... except you guys but I cxouldnt ask anyone for help like an engine swap or tranny swap because I find it a little rude because I don't KNOW you KNow you...

What you guys think?

The SPi is super easy to work on. Its not worth dumping money into performance mods tho.

My plan more like dream, is to keep building the body and suspension on my car, find a Ztec engine tranny and ECU, and rebuild them. Once its all done drop it in. The idea is its a lot easy to do the big engine mods while the engine is out.

If you ever have a issue with the car just hit me up. Im willing to help just about anyone out. Wheter its via the forum or in person. Its just alot easy to have you guys come to my house cause I got little kids.

that's just for the mounting brackets and engine cradle you still need to buy an engine, trans and rear end

i was thinken something between a 4cyl and 8cyl, my friend has a mercury sable with a 3.0 v6 duratec and the mother f@&$er halls ass with that heavy sable body, so i could jus amagine wat it would do in my sedan and from what i saw on google, to do it is easier than a v8 swap
