I need a 2.3 engine

Great lakes peeps, my 2004 focus engine died a terrible death a few weeks ago. the only place I've had success finding a replacement is on ebay, and I don't really have the money to spend a grand on just the engine plus shipping right now.

Could you please keep your eyes peeled as you visit junkyards and see parts cars for a 2.3? (8th digit of the vin is Z) I'll also take a 2.3 out of a DOHC ranger (2001 or newer). Thanks in advance.

If you have one I'll consider buying one from you. If you tell me where it is that would be great too. I'm located in north central Illinois.

I know this feel. I had to put one in my 2005 ST a few years back. I think I dropped like $1300 for one with 32,000 miles on it. Sucks.

I may know of one its my old engine that was taken out before I had the built one put in. Let me get ahold of the shop that put it in to see if he still has it.

its a junkyard network and it sounds like your willing to travel a little bit to get one. Best of luck

I got saleen's engine so now I just have to finish putting it in. My old one is almost out. I'd better hurry up before it gets too cold in the garage.
