I thought this was going to be interesting until I saw who was posting. The only engine swap hes doing is in his bed when hes fast asleep!

It's not been too bad to be honest, apart from bending a piston ring while I was trying to slide it back into the bore!! I won't be too involved in actually reinstalling the engine into the car though, the car is still at the garage where my dad works so I'll probably end up slipping one of the mechanics some cash to put it back for me. happywink
