    What else could i put in there?

    Ok i've had a look over my engine after i basically murdered it and have a couple other people look over it just so i had it set in my head i wasn't getting F'ed over. Now seen as it would have to pritty much come out anyway i was wonder what would be the best and most easy engine to fit other than the same as whats currently in it (Z16XEP). I'm hoping for somthing in the 1.8 range really but if there is absolutly nothing that will go in with ease (ok i use ease loosly i am prepared for some work) What out 1.6 Engines would fit in without too much hassle?

    anything can fit with enough time/effort/money... but... more straightforwardly - any other small block engine (eg 1.6 or smaller displacement) will go straight in, as will the small block 1.8 (which I beleive is the Z18XEP but I may be corrected on that).

    HTH
    NOW - Sapphire Black 3dr Astra G

    THEN - Glacier White 2.0Di Estate - 136bhp 1.6 Pineapple Yellow Mk3 - Flame Red 2.0Di Van - Chianti Red 1.8 Coupe - Star Silver 2.2 Zafira - Flame Red 2.2 Linea Rossa Coupe - Titan Gold 1.8 Coupe

    9 Years, 7 Astras, 1 Zafira, No Regrets.

    I googled z18xep and i kept coming up with z18xer same sort of thing as the so called "power adapted"?

    EDIT: and a quick google again proves yes apparently that means "Inreaced Output" correct? I assume i would need the XER loor and ECU or would it just be more simple for me to get a 1.6 so i could use original loom so to speak and ECU
