Cooper engine compatibility question
I'm considering buying a cooper with a seized motor, the vin indicates it's a 2007, R56 with a N14 motor. However, it also says the output is 128hp....so I'm confused. The sales ad says it's the turbo. It has the hood scoop, I haven't been to look at it yet but at $1500 it seems a steal.
As far as a replacement motor is concerned, i'm seeing wildly ranging prices from $800 to $3500. What am I missing here....will the $800 motor simply not fit without extensive modification, changing other parts etc ?
I'm just looking to swap the motor, not get into making a different motor fit.
Last 7 of VIN are TT81570 - details can be checked at the bimmerwork vin checker
Can anyone please help me ?
