Shall i bang one into my astra! or go for a c20xe.
neither, sell it and buy a GSi/coupe turbo giving you 'guatanteed' reliability and some sort of resale value.
I wouldnt go for a C20XE especially as its an old engine and wont be particularly fast in a mk4. If you really want to go down the transplant route then its got to be a turbo imo.
Previous Astras: 1994 Cesaro 1.8 16v | 2002 SXi 1.6 16v | 2001 Coupé 2.0 Turbo | 1999 LS 1.6 16v
Other Vauxhalls: 2001 Vectra 1.8 16v| 2003 Vectra GSi 3.2 V6 | 2005 Signum CDTi 150
I would just sell your car and buy a turbo aswell and they should be easy to find one of a similar price thats what i am looking to do in the new year instead of messing around with my 1.8

I'd be interested in Byrons opinion on this conversion ....
