Well, as the title suggests i'm gonna be changing the engine in my astra, along with a mate at the same time!!
This is something i've never attempted before although i'm confident me and a few mates can pull it off. (mates done a coulple of nova conversions)
Mine is going from a 1.8 (Z18XE) to a Z20LET. the good thing here (he hopes) is that it should be a straight swap as the turbo lump is also in a mk4 astra
So 1. will i be able to use the loom from my hatch and just plug in the new engine and ecu to that???
2. I've not really any idea of how much a Z18XE is worth as i now have to sell it!! has 33000 miles well looked after, any ideas would be appreciated!
The second conversion is goin to be a V6
Hoping for the Z26XE here although whatever is available at the time will probably be used. I know this one is going to cause us problems so if anyone has any advice or info that would be great.
I know a couple have V6's in their G's, what were the main problems gettin it in and running??
When the project gets rolling i will get some pics up. Maybe a month or so yet tho still in planning.
Thanks in advance guys!!!
