Re: new engine

its a bit of a toss up, second hand engine will prob be the cheapest option, assuming you get a goodun, however making sure you get a goodun is the problem.

a 2.5 build normally starts at around 3-4k+ depending on spec, its not relay the kinda thing to do yourself unless you seriously know what your doing
