    HI All,
    After what seems like an age I've found out that my car only has 5 pistons at the very most, where as it should have 6 and it only has 29 valves as opposed to 30! So, what I would like to know is:- A, Will a 2.8 engine fit to the gearbox and what alterations will have to be made, i.e. ECU and sensor wise. B, Has any one got a 2.4 or 2.8 enginge for sale and C, I spose a manual would go down well, as well at this point! Oh and it has to have real pages that I can flip over, I can't be doing with these CD things.
    If anyone knows of a good breakers in North Wales or the North West please get in touch with addresses and phone numbers.
    I wait here with bated breath for your forth comming replies.
    Thanks in advance.

    Well the truth is that I'm just waiting to take some pix of the car and it has to be sold as it is, so watch this space. Cheers anyway.
