donor car 750/1000
rebuild 700/1000 depending on the spec u want
labour depends who does it

Hi,

think i'd spend the extra and get a 2,4 evo engine as i know thats possible :p
The Evo 2, 4 engine you hear about isn't a Mitsubishi Evolution engine, it's a modified K-Series block by Scholar Engines.

I had a conversation with a guy about this he said Because its a miti colt chassis an evo engine can be accomodated
The ZR has no links with the Colt, the front end is based on the MK2 rover 200/Honda Concerto.

HTH

Cheers

Neil

Indeed, but my car isnt RWD and neither would a ZR Turbo be so what does that have to do anything? :smartass:
