The 2.5L V6 you have was also used in the older Ford Contours and Mercury Mystique's. You can easily find a used one if you look around at auto recyclers and salvage yards and if looking for a new remanufactured one, they have those too. www.jasperengines.com to name one place. If you want to put another totally different engine in, you'll have to research it some more and what modification you want to tackle.
