Got a 1.8lx mondeo petrol. Was thinking of selling but will not get much for it- therefore is is easy enough to replace the 1.8 petrol with a 2.5 v6 petrol from another mondeo.
If so any idea of the cost of fitting- recommened garages?
Anything you would think I would have to change- uprated shocks or brakes etc.
I am not a mechanic and will appreciate any advice given.
Thanks in advance

Heres your advise, don't bother, just go out and buy a V6 mondeo, it will costy you more for the pricer of the engine and labour.

You can pick mondeos up for buttons these days.

If you are after a quick one get the turbo diesel, they are rapid, the one with the 6 speed box that is.

To do the engine swap you would have to...

Change wiring loom
ECU
brakes
clutch
driveshafts
exhaust/CAT
air flow meter
the list goes on, just buy one mate and save yourself a lot of time and money.
