I plan on using a zetec engine, so won't be needing the engine from the sierra anyway. Anyone have an idea of how much the sierra parts i need would cost roughly, if buying seperatley? Eg. uprights, gearbox etc.

Thanks in advance.


*EDIT* thinking about it, what else would i need off the sierra, besides brakes, uprights, gearbox (+ diff) and steering column?
Just noticed this one David, we're all nice on here...

Another local North East builder plus a first time pass (see we're not all thick)

If you need to see anything close up you know where we are, more than welcome just for a chat and coffee if passing - can even have a ride out (any excuse to get out)

That'd be great. i'm sure i'll pop over some time in the near future.

Just had a browse of your site, and noticed you sell a complete car with 2.0 zetec on carbs and megajolt (which is exactly what i plan for mine).

Just wondering - how do you pass the iva emissions test with this? I've made a thread here... http://www.haynes.co.uk/forums/showthread.php?t=4263 if you'd prefer to reply to that one.
