    Vectra Engine Help

    I know this is off topic as it isn't about an Astra but thats becuase it isn't my car that has the problem.

    My brother owns a 1997 Vectra B 1.8 16v LS and the engine is knackered. He wants to put a 2.0 16v in instead. Is this possible?

    I've called a couple of places and they have said this is fine but another place has said that it might not be possible becuase the 2.0 has a different ECU, gearbox ratios, airflow meters and it may possibly have different wiring. These can all be altered but I'm not sure it would be worth the effort considering the cost and the cars age.

    I am going to get in contact with Vauxhall too but I'd appreciate any advice from someone that has done something similar or knows someone who has

    Thanks in advance for any help given
