Anyone started a 1l ecoboost swap yet? Ive found this one on turbo minis http://www.turbominis.co.uk/forums/inde ... tid=571611.
Seems height is the biggest problem as far as fitting, im getting some measurements tommorrow . 2nd hand engine and 5 speed box are going for under 2k and a few aftermarket engine management systems available ( not cheap about 1400 pounds ) but seems like a realistic swap now given they seem to be putting out some impressive output stock. Im keen to give it a go when my current money pit is finished.

OR 10-11k for a brand spanking new engine from Ford (not available as a crate version yet). I have thought about it a lot, Z-cars in the Uk are currently looking at developing a subframe for the round nose with a reduced sump.
