    Post 2.2 to Turbo Differences, Any Ideas?

    Can anyone tell me the main differences on the 2.2 Astra G against a SRI turbo, I donít mean the obvious engine and front discs & carriers, I mean anything like ECU differences if any and other little bits and bobs.

    Drive shafts maybe? I know the 2.2 has an f23 gearbox, isnít that the same as the Turbo has anyway, will it fit at least?

    I'm asking as i'mcontemplating sticking a z20let engine in as a replacement then selling my 2.2 lump as itís in perfect working order.

    Any suggestions, has anyone done this on here before?

    will be different ECU, afaik the turbo is a F23 so same box, not sure on anything else persoanlly,

    but as is normally said, will prob be easier/cheaper in the long run to just buy a SRi-T there quite cheap now,

    If i find its alot of fiddly little bits and not worth while from you chaps on here then i'll do just that Andy.

    Ideally id want a gsi with sat nav built in, i'll see how christmas goes, im considering selling my bike and car and getting something nice, maybe a audi tt or something.

    I know a fair bit about the supercharger kit, but to be honest id prefer the z20let lump as it seems to be a stronger engine all round. I mean for wear and tear.

    anyone else know anything more about what this change over would require?

    all input appreciated.
