because i serviced the car after buying it i voided the 3 month warranty the dealer has to give me.he threatened me that he would take me to court and get me for slander .the reason i had to get a paint job for it was after washing it about 4 times the paint turned white (red car) they really know how to hide things well

Don't even need to wind back the speedo. Just swap one out from a low km write off. Sounds like your ute has lived a very hard 200,000km+ instead of the advertised 50,000km.

If your gonna do an engine swap, what about fitting a Boss 260 or Boss 290 XR8/GT Motor? Quad cam.
