Duratec First Start

It lives

http://youtu.be/BecyQL0T1-Y

Currently has no exhaust manifold so sounds a bit strange. Amazed at how quickly it started - had only ever been cranked with out plugs to check for oil pressure.

Will update my engine swap thread when I get a chance.

Thanks to everyone for their help and advice along the way.

Thanks everyone.

Surprised me how well it starts - was expecting 5 min of cranking and chugging to get it going.
