    V6 into a Astra G

    At the end of the year I`m thinking of putting a V6 Lump into my Astra G... How much work is involved??? Would I be better with a turbo lump instead??? Any advice welcome!!!

    Think you'd be better getting the turbo matey, the V6 is too heavy i think, i'm no expert though, i might be totally wrong.

    i would say just buy a turbo astra starting off at 7k now days
    or get your engine turbo charged at CS? as the z20let is still hard to get.
    a turbo is easy as you can buy all the parts from vxl. if you do it your self say 1.5k with parts from brakers

    a v6 would be a lot of work in the astra g you will need new mounts a lot of work but it can be done if you have the cash
