I may be coming into some money at the end of january and a fair chunk of it is going to be thrown at my car.
The 2.5 engine i've got is ok but could use a bit more grunt so i'm thinking of upgrading to the M52B28 with an M50 manifold and LSD.
How easy/cost effective is this? I want to sort out my paint and bodywork as well so my budget for the engine swap would be under £1k if possible.
I hear that basically the only difference between 2.5 and 2.8 is the stroke so (if i hadn't done over 110k) would i be easier to replace the conrods with ones from a 2.8 to get the same effect?
