    I am currently having a Capri 2.8i completely repaired and resprayed , I have removed the engine so the complete engine bay can be done as well . Whilst the engine is out I want to have it looked over by a specialist before it goes back in the car and anything sorted if needed . The engine was running semi ok before I had it removed but only drove the car twice and seemed under powered . I live in Hampshire and wish to ask if anyone can recommend someone who is a specialist in the 2.8i engine

    The 2.8 is a relatively simple engine to work on - I'd focus more on the general reputation of the shop and their results than the particular engine. Once built, you should be able to do the routine maintenance (periodic valve adjustments & tune-ups) yourself. A good machinist is a good machinist - your engine won't be a problem to one. And welcome in here, especially with your perspective of wanting something good. :)
