hey guys hope this is in the right section
anyways to cut a long story short my timing belt snapped buckled a couple valves and found the front end rasp to be a split manifold as suspected on my mk4 SXi so planning replacing the engine for something abit bigger
having been looking for the past couple weeks for a c20xe or c20let at a reasonable price now a m8 has offered me a 2.5 v6 with 167bhp from an omega but with out the gearbox as engines go i know the help the car to move
will it be possible to fit the 2.5 into the engine bay?
can it run using the standard SXi box?
and astra drive shafts?
or what will i need to make it possible?
will the weight of the engine cause steering problems as in under or over steer?
im pretty much stumped and even thinking of just finding a standard to do a straight swap my heads frazzled
your advice is deffo needed
