    im not definate but ive heard that f23 out of a 2.2 wont fit a zlet. but i reckon about 2.5 to 3k using f23 because you already have the driveshafts and things so you would save a hell of £ on parts i think it was nearly 1k for all the vxr driveshafts hubs and various mounts for the box and engine to beable to fit thats new prices though if you can drop on a vxr in a breakers buy the lot and get £ back selling bits on the boxes alone are £1500 from vaux i sold one for £750

    yep the 2.2 box will not fit the zlet as it has different mountings.

    The only other thing I would say is make sure you have access to another mode of transport while you are doing it, and keep us updated with pics

    i'm thinking balls to the LEH. Pete's put a V8 in his, i think you should dump a V14 out of a Rolls in
