    Interesting, judging by the pictures, it is not finished. I wonder how they have got round the throttle.

    There was a guy on MIG who fitted one to his Vectra bragging that the fly by wire throttle was not a problem and it was a direct fit.

    What he should have done was remove the 'Y' reg plates and also the '150' sticker from the doors.

    You guessed it, it was already 2.2 with fly by wire, so yes that would be an easy install

    All you would need to do is mount the throttle pedal and pot in the car, shouldnt be too tricky as there is plenty of room in there.

    You have a point there, the top pic does look different to the rest
