    Question 20xev to 20xe Questions........

    Well i've just bought an 1999 Sri 2.0ltr Xev (ecotec) and although it runs ok it doesn't have to oomph i'm used to in having a Xe (previous MK3 Gsi)

    Soo i'm wanting to fit one:

    Apart from the Engine, Loom, Ecu and front pipe what else do i need
    I can use the Eco's Driveshafts and prob the box.....

    I've been told i need to change the front left engine mount is this true?
    And does anyone have a picture of said mount?


    Anyone got a bit of a how2? - or any pointers (pics would be good too)


    Cheers Rob

    Yes, the Eco on the MK4 mounts on the wing, using a bracket through the Cam belt cover.

    You may need to convert the XE to the later toothed belt layout and use the relevant brackets and bits from the ECO to get the mount on.

    The XE mount goes on the front, so would need major mods, to get round to the wing.

    Box and shafts you can reuse, although if yours is the f23, you'll need a 20 LET clutch kit and flywheel rather than the XE flat flywheel and clutch.

    Here is a picture of the said mount:



    Once the mount is sorted the rest is quite easy to be honest. Just have to get your head around the wiring
