    V6 in mk3 Astra Finished

    Well sort of. As you might know a pal of mine was putting a V6 engine into a mk3 Astra. Well just the other day it was in and running . The engine went into a 3 door Si Astra leaving the 4 stud wheels still on the car. At first they had a bit of trouble with the front struts, so they used Astra Gte struts and it worked well. The V6 had a K& N filter on and it seemed to be running as it's getting too much air. So it still needs a bit of fine tuning and then a decent paint job ,I think I will try and take some pictures the way it is now if he lets me lol. This will be a fast car!! :shock:
