There's quite a bit to consider here I think :!:

If you can transfer your fuelling system ie; pump (injectors, if different output) etc....... you should be fine :!:
The transmission/axle may have to be swapped out too as there has been talk on here that the splines are different from the early ones compared to the later ones :roll:

It would be better to have the complete donor TBH :!:
At least you then have all the bits including ECU and wiring :wink:

With any luck, someone will come along that has done this and shed some more light on the matter :D

engine and gear box come complete with injectors and fuel pump so was hopin it would go straight in but then again im no mechanic so no idea.

just lookin for anyone that maybe swapped one before

engine and box goin v cheap on ebay so could have been cheaper than takin it into garage to see wots up with mine

cheers for advice so far

Can you have the ECU and key too :?:

Is the wiring available, as knowing Fords, things like sensors move around the bay :!:
