I wind him up by telling him his S type has got the exact same engine as my Maverick!
:lol: I was on the phone to a sales person a few days back organising a test drive. He offered a test drive of the 3.0L X-Type.
I said "No thanks, I'm very familiar with that engine, it's in my Tribute"
He then started to get quite defensive and told me how "the two engines are are completly different, it's like comparing Apes and Humans." "We have the same basic structure as apes but are completly different, this is just like the 3.0L in the X-Type and the 3.0L in your Tribute."
I'll ask him next saturday "How can the tribute's 3.0L & the x-type's 3.0L share the same bore & stroke, the same exact displacment and the same compression ratio, yet still be completly different engines?" :box:
I'll also ask about the Ford Mondeo 2.2L Diesel engine fitted in the x-type as well :lol:
