    x20xev to c20xe

    What workk would be involved swapping from a x20xev to a c20xev? are mounts different, does the f18 box fit the c20xe? loom wise, how different are the plugs/sensors?

    Obviously new ecu etc...

    Or anyoen know of a great x20xev going cheap? Thanks, Joe

    I wouldnt bother, c20xes are all getting on these days and you'd be lucky to find one in good nick. You could swap on the head, manifolds, and use your standard ecu afm, and injectors maybe, that would be quite a trick conversion, though you'd need to use the ecotec cam sprockets on the c20xe cams, and Im not sure this is possible.

    The reason i was enquring was my engine has just bout to give up, and its looking cheaper to get either of tese engines then rebuild my current!
    Not for any sort of performance increase or anything, changing heads etc i cant be bothered with...

    Any idea on the actual fitment tho?

    id just replace the whole engine with a good x20xev, save a lot of hassle.
