Until Ford showed up with a phantom offer to produce an engine of thier own, I don't think there was any doubt of the decision, thus the headstart that some folks had.

Find me a Kent for a few thousand, I'd take it. I spoke to 2 nantionial engine builders and 2 local guys. Low end to build an engine having to buy parts, figure a min of $8,000. Price can easly go up to $12K. This for a fresh dyno tuned, reagional, current legal, high reliabilbity, moderate power, complee (Carb to Clutch) engine. Some causual feelers I've put out there for used engines turned up very limited response. $6,000+ and then I'd stilk have to add Pan and exhaust. Almost cheaper to but a car for the motor.

Honestly I've not looked too hard, don't have the funds or time right now. I'm sure I could find better.

The 2L pinto, prices are much lower. I could probably get one for $3,500. My cost would be a bit less, as I can re-cycle my parts.
