Wave 16v Boxer Engine

Has anyone got a 1.7 16v Boxer engine for sale.
Have real difficulty trying to find one for decent money and condition.

Re: 16v Boxer Engine

Yeah was meant to buy a P4 last week from John that he had been running but got written off. Unfortunately the insurance company classified it a cat B write off and it has to go to auction. Spoke to the salvage yard that is collecting it and i can't buy it from them because I am not licensed and it must go to the auction. And so the drama continues!

Re: 16v Boxer Engine

yes they have changed all the rules on crash damaged cars havent they...

i think theres a guy called Steve Parry who does suds and maybe 33`s but i dont know his number, but he is way down south somewhere i think.

Someone round here will have a contact for him.

Is the engine going in a sud then?
thats my plan eventually...
cracking engine the 16v so rev-happy

Re: 16v Boxer Engine

Spoke to Steve, know him quite well, helped an awful lot with the project but even he has not got a 16v engine, just heads. I need the engine for the sud, just been playing with nitrous and blew the motor racing a focus rs. Gave him a bit of a shock, but looking for about 180/190 bhp with the supercharger. Might leave the nitrous alone and only use it to cool the intercooler.

I was lead to believe Nos was good on forced induction as it cools the air into the motor??
Cos i was looking at getting a wizards set-up for my Q4,
what did you actually break by the way?

Re: 16v Boxer Engine

If you use the nitrous through the gears on acceleration it is fine. It is only used in short bursts but I kept it pinned in top for about 90 seconds the speedo passed 120mph then the nitrous kicked in and the motor started banging. Think that I have destroyed a piston, car still drives. Found a complete car with 55k miles on it in Somerset, so i bought that today and have the long drive down on Saturday. Hopefully engines swapped just after christmas and a post mortem on the 8v. Thanks for all your help everyone.
