    Question newbie here, with a question

    Hi, i'm new to this forum.
    I have a mate who wants to know whats involved in fitting a v6 into his 1.4i mk3 astra. I have a v6 cav that he'd be interested in if he knows it is easily done.
    The main questions are,(1) can the engine be mounted in the astra using the cavalier mounts with no or hardly any modifications?, (2)what exhaust sys would be needed? and (3) what about the fueling - can the original tank and pump be used?
    Any other useful info would be much appreciated

    Theres loads of people on here who have done a similar conversion - u could always send one of them a PM and ask. Some of the ones of the top of my head are Heds & SimonP (Simon's on quite a lot so should be able to help - doesnt have the car now but sill should be able to help)
    Failing that why dont u have a word with Regal or Courtenay or anyone else who specialises in such conversions. This would probs be your best bet.

    PS. I justed typed in "V6 Conversion" into the search and quite a bit of info came up.

    Good luck and keep us posted ... oh yeah and welcome to AS !

    Ok, i managed to get hold of a mk3 astra gsi for nothing, with one or 2 problems etc and its already halfway through a v6 conversion. My main problem is no key, so i need help in order to remove the steering lock and ignition barrel so i can steer it into my garage where i won't get fined for being on double yellows and no tax.
    I would be extremely grateful for any suggestions and help.
