  • Please tell me you are going to put more power through this motor while you have it stripped down and out of the engine bay. You will never have a better chance and it is much more cost effective.

  • Had two V6 Mondeo's and those engines are bullet proof. More than happy with mega mileage as long as you change the oil on time and use decent oil. Biggest expence I had on either of them was new plug leads.

    • Because Halfords are sponsoring this. As others have said, these cc and will be for minor hidden parts, obviously the body shop would probably have a shelf laden with Upol primer and black gloss.
