depends on your budget and the competance of the tuning company involved.

A T series swap won't get you any change from £3k plus the extra insurance + fuel etc.

Thats not too bad.. This will sound daft.. but if i had a engine fitted with low mileage.. can the clocks be set back to the mileage of the engine? Or are the clocks not allowed to be redone? (mileage)

Also.. If the engine itself is just bought, what other gear would be needed? As i do know some one who would fit it for £100 (yes i know its cheap, but he has fitted a engine before for me for £100 in a week) Really good guy :)

Garage i thought would be a better option because i dont know how complicated it would be?? i dont know..

Insurance will be as good as bum rape though.
Sell the 25 and buy a 220 Coupe. Be way cheaper, and you'll still have a grand or so to play with.
