    red top engine in mk4 astra

    Hi
    i have got a mk4 astra and i have a red top to go in it but the mounts are all different, i thought i would have to make a mounting for the timing belt side and thought the others would just bolt up but the back one looks quite similar but the linkage is in a different place and the right hand gear box mount is in a totally different place. has anyone done or had this done to there car. i need to find out basically if the f20 box is used, if so what would i do about the mounting or do i just buy a box out of a 2ltr mk4 astra so all the mountings just bolt straight on, assuming that the box will marry up to the red top.
    i would be gratefull for any help in this matter.
