I only made an introduction post last week, but here I am again. I bought a Mojo with a blacktop zetec, but the engine overheated badly, about 10 miles from Dover. Managed to get it to the port, but was unable to start the car again, and had a local shop recover it to have a look.
I am waiting on their verdict, but I suspect there's a good chance of terminal failure, so I could be looking at other engines sooner rather than later.
The most obvious upgrade would be an ST170 engine, but would my ITB's and Emerald ECU work on that? In my mind, the perfect engine swap for pretty much anything 4 cyl would be a honda K20/24. This would of course be a completely different ballgame, and the costs would get too high for something that I bought to see if I liked it and could register it.
Anyway that could give advise or point me in the right direction? Or knows other interesting options?
This was not how I imagined my first experience would go, hopefully the second effort works out better

So keep it Ford. I'm not sure if the ST170 has the same bell housing bolt pattern.
A lot of the Southern Kit Car Club people use Snodhurst Garage in Kent. Might be worth a call to see if they could get you out of a sticky situation.
