OK heres the deal. I want to swap my 2.5 V6 duratec with a 3.0 liter, but dont know what to do or where to get the engine. I dont know a ton about engines and so my friends would be helping me in their garage. I just need to know what to do to get one and where and cost etc..

aslong as you know this is not an easy chore by any task, its going to take a good while to complete, plus alot of $$$$$

go for it, if i had the money to do it, i probably would.

you must be very well skilled, because even the capaldis who do this almost on a weekly basis and have the hoist as well as a custom engine cradle made just for our applications could not do it in that time... heck doing a chevy small block which is far easier than this takes at least 4 hours to swap with 2 people....
