That's right...you rub it in! :(
All good things come to those who wait. I'm really impatient which explains a lot.

F31 320i. Good car.
E89 20i Now fully dried
Z3 'free litre'. Project and a half. Complicated!
Mazda3 sold
Tatty old R56 Mini Cooper. Money pit!

I’m looking at a new project car- the worst case scenario is that the n20 2.0 engine is toast

I’m happy with an engine swap- what’s peoples experience of this?

Assume the new engine will need coding etc to the car?

Any insights?

Thx

Stuart
Were you getting bored? 😉

Find engine first. What cost 3-4k. So there's 6.5k.
