    well yes, but why would you want to do that? there's very little performance gain, infact the 2.0 is slower to 60 than the 1.8

    my 1.8 spat a con rod out so im lookin for another engine . if i get a 2.0 its getting cams , pullys ,flywheel and out else i can find to make it a bit nippier, which should make it worthwhile, HOPEFULLY. would i need to modify anything to put the engine in?

    mate, the G had the 2.0 ecotec as standard so course itll fit in! you might want the ecu from the x20xe or z20xe whichever one it is. but as rob said its not gna give you much performance gain. all the mods will cost you a packet to add to insurance so you might aswell stick a LET or V6 in it or something.

    200hp as standard is less to insure than a block tuned to 200hp
    Any info on V6 MK4 conversions greatly appreciated!
