is possible you have not met her. She is not so into party scene.

somewhat of a complete 180 from girls I typically associate with, but also much more like girl I would like to settle down with vs girls that are fun for the moment.

Suspension is slightly harder than brushing teeth and slightly easier than tying a tie!

just have at it boys you can do it in a day.

depends on amount of winter driving the car has done.

basically buy a lot of PB blaster and be prepared to swear a lot.

Did some more checking, car is definitely out of warranty, sold April 4th, 2005. Ford wants $5300 to replace the motor. (Wasn't planning on going that route, but asked out of curiosity and holy shit.) Time to start sourcing junk yard motors I guess.

couldnt you drop new internals into your current engine for about the same exact price as buying a complete used engine? you were planning a few mods anyways....bumping compression would go along nicely.

The problem is time Klod, I am borrowing a friends car to drive, but that's not going to last very long. I need to get this car back together and driving ASAP. I'm finding used motors for $11-1300 with pretty low miles.

Question to you duratec guys, if I buy a motor out of an 06-07, can I just use my PS pump etc. and bolt it up. or do I have to swap over to the new style? My car is an 05.

Double Post*

If anything Klod, if I decide I want to do a motor build, I'll build this one over time, and then put it in when its all done. But likely I'll just drive this get it paid off, and then buy a better car to play with. Alla C5 Vette, something like that.
