My bad luck

Talk about bad luck, I have a 2.5 V6 156 SW and bent two conrods driving through 4 inches of water. Who is the bright spark who decided to put the air intake down at the bottom of the engine ? I also have a 3.0 V6 Spider that is overheating and filling the sump with water ! Sods bloody law I suppose. I've sourced a replacement 2.5 for the 156 but can't find 3.0 for the Spider, so if it's a head gasket gone and the heads knackered, will the heads from the engine from the bent conrod engine (2.5) fit the 3.0 ? I bet the y won't

Current stable 3.0 V6 Spider 2.5 V6 156 SW Fiesta 1.6 TDCI Titanium KTM 990 SMT
As Robert the Bruce once said about his Spider "if at first you don't succeed try try again".

Funny you asked that! It appears that 2.5 v6 are compatible...but hands off they are mine!
