    Z20LEH into MK4

    Right i know this has been done by s70con and scottyboy
    but
    what exactly is involved,

    engine mounts
    gearbox mounts etc
    What is cross posting? Is it when you get angry and post it on a forum?

    you still need to use the Z20let ECU mate
    its just a swap thats all
    you can run the M32 or keep your F23
    if you keep the F23 its just a swap of block

    what is it you need to do with the driveshafts
    do i keep the LET ecu or the LEH
    would it need tech2'd to get it going
    are there companies that make the mounts for the gearbox etc

    if you intend to keep the f23 gearbox then youl need to use the z20let flywheel and clutch. if you wanna use an m32 then you need the driveshafts, mounts, selector cable, and linkage, as well as z20leh flywheel and clutch.

    if you want to fit a Z20LEH you must Run a Z20let ECU and Engine Loom End of
    if you get the M32 you will need Drive shafts an mounts
    if you just buy a Long Block from vauxhall just swap the blocks over

    Don't forget to get the sump oil level sensor as you will need to fit this and splice the connector into the LET loom as it is different on the LEH.

    right so
    is this a simple swap to do.
    will engine and gearbox come out together
    is it the m32 mounts i will use will they bolt to the MK4 chassis
    do i use the vxr driveshafts
    do i use the vxr linkage and gear knob
    what parts of loom connect to engine
    im assuming i dont need to have the key coded to car cos its the same ecu
    also my ecu is remapped to stage 3, how would this affect it
    cant think of anymore questions

    im not gonna tackle this myself but a mate of mine is a mechanic and he has done a few swaps before, just tryin to get an idea of whats involved
