Help me out with purchase of SVTf engine!

So, I am looking at a SVTf engine with 51-56k on it for $1800. I'm not sure if that price is good, but it doesn't seem too far out there. Is there anything I should be aware of when I purchase other than the Intake Control Runner change? I don't know the year quite yet, but the shop I have quoting the work has been really good with communication.

Thats a little high I think. Theres one on eBay for less with 45k miles, and LCRacing was selling brand new ones for around the price you are looking at

I set Capeli Racing a message to see if they can quote me an engine at a lower cost. Thanks for the heads up. I'll keep posting when things turn up.

Yeah, I'm a bit surprised by RhodySVT's reply. But I'll give it a few days of poking around. Shoot... if I can save, then I'll do it! Focus-Power will sell me a rebuilt engine for a about 2200, but I need to give him a core to exchange. If he'll take mine, then I wonder if that's a better route? 300 more dollars gets me a rebuild one...

Then there's a shop that will quoted a rebuild of my engine for $2000 in parts and labor... that also sounds good. But an engine with 20000 miles less on it is tickling me... thoughts?

You should really pay no more than 1k. I bought one for 1500 and that included shipping from the midwest to me in florida. So I believe I paid 1k for the engine with 21k miles on it. Please shop around.

It was just a normal salvage yard. I searched for a good week. I googled "used SVT engines for sale" A lot will pop up, you just need to look and get prices. I even typed in "ford focus svt engine craigslist" and that will give you craigslist listing around everywhere.
