    yer thats got to be great:roll: shi77y small brakes, as 16v brakes wont fit, soggy suspension great fun:roll:


    Worst thing is they are probably paying less on insurance than someone who does the conversion properly.

    IMHO - fI_Icking dangerous

    16v brakes will fit under 14" wheels. The Astra GTE 16v only had 14's from the factory, so did the later Mk3 Astra Gsi 16v.

    My friend has done a similar thing, he is building a turbo MK3, but has know where to store the engine while the car is being built, so it is sitting in his Astra MK2 1.4 LX estate.

    And it still has 13" steel wheels on it.
