    V6 conversion

    has any one put a v6 in an astra G themselves. if so what did you need aside from the obvious engine, gearbox and loom ?
    will i need special drveshafts becos i was thinking of getting an f28 gearbox from courtney as they do one to fit the v6?

    the F28 will cause you problems and its not really recomended for astra mk4 V6 converstions. You would be better off with an F23 out of one of the turbo astra/zafiras.

    for a start the F23 is designed to fit the astra so it would fit without any trouble the F28 has different mounts so would need a lot more fabrication. It would work its just a lot more work, on top of an already hard converstion.
