    If you want a "bolt it in" conversion, then no. It would be possible to do, but you're back into the CANBUS wiring issue, which was a major issue for a guy I know who put a facelift Z18XE into a pre-facelift 1.2 Z12XE Corsa. From 03 the Corsa was CANBUS under the bonnet, same as the later Mk4 Astra, but used a different system to the Astra due to the Corsa having a Fiat derived system. The Corsa was more like the Vectra as far as wiring went.

    It really wouldn't be worth it, seriously.
