    Angry Need a new z22se engine!

    Driving back from Aberdeen last night and was about 15mins from home when my engine spewed its guts all over the motorway, its seized and I think the timing chain snapped so no doubt the head and valves are knackered too, so anyone no where I can sourse a cheap replacement? Or an engine that would be expensive to retro fit?

    this is a little about what the Americans do with these engines

    http://media.gm.com/division/gmracin...ing_Ecotec.pdf

    and here is something from their drag racing section, take a look half way down for the Zafira reference

    none in, ive found a place called BT motor salvage who will do me an engine with 54k 2 months warranty for £750 cash if I pick it up? Sounds like my best option up to now, ive phoned vauxhall today for prices for a new timing chain kit, water pump and oil pump, but they need to no what car the engine came out of and what chassis it had because there are 2 diffewrent types and timing chain kit and water pumps, nothing is ever bloody easy.
