    Engine Replacement Question

    Hi, i currently have a 2000 X18 astra, but have been told my engine is on its last legs, i am going to replace the engine when it goes as i want to keep my astra for another year or so. My question for you is this....which engines can i easly and cheaply replace my X18 with? (eg z18, z20let, x20, etc) also what else would i need to change if i change engine size? thanks for your help

    I'd assume going like for like would be the easiest and cheapest replacement, but then I dont really know anything about engines.

    I'll keep an eye on this thread cause I think my engine is on its last legs, which is also an X18, on 5 dr sport
    Astra is coming back..bigger badder and better
    ..or is it? Thinking of buying a coupe
