    ADVICE NEEDED, anyone who knows bout z20leh conversion!!!!

    right, got vxr enigne cos i wanted to go up to the 6 speed box and thought vxr engine would be good also!

    my mk4 astra van currently has z20let out of zaffy with f23 gearbox,

    bought all the mounts etc i needed and also risked buying driveshafts from a mk5 astra sri cdti tho, cos hoped that these would go into my hubs!

    anyway they dont, i have the hubs from the mk5 vxr!

    can i swap them over? there are 2 wires coming from the hub, same as the hub on the van! so can i just re wire them????

    any ideas people!

    sure i read somewhere that mk5 astra sri shafts from the z20lel engine fit but at near £350 each just wondered if i can do it any other way!

    any help would be appricated, will get some pics up!

    happy with my progress, started taking engine out this evening, its all out and all wiring is swapped over and vxr engine all built up almost ready to go in van!

    The drive shafts you already have on should be fine. the leh engine is exactly the same as the let (externally). There are a lot of people who have put the six speed box from the MK5 into a MK4 using the original shafts.

    to keep the mk4 hubs you need driveshafts from a z20lel/ler engined mk5 astra or zafira mk2.

    the vxr hubs will get you up and running but the speedo wont work properly or the abs iirc.
