    Z20LET Conversion - ASTRA G MK4

    Hi, I have an Astra G MK4 1998 NON-TURBO GSI ( yes very rare I know)
    .. Ivejust brought myself a complete engine Z20LET, inc..wiring loom, drive shafts, etc basically EVERYTHING i need for the conversion..

    BUT

    Ive come across a problem, whilst looking at my throttle pedal...My car's a 1998, yet the Z20LET engine is from a 53 plate astra and ive noticed that the throttle pedal is electronic,where as the standard engine is cabled...

    Is there any way the new engine can be fitted with out changing the loom, or am I going to need to remove the complete Dashboard to completly change the wiring loom over?

    Any help or advise would be grateful Thanks Dave

    Pretty sure you need to fit the dash loom and electronic pedal.
    The truth is always the truth even if you haven't realised it yet...

    removing the dash is not that hard but im sure ive seen pics on here of the dash loom being changed with the dash still fitted.
    when i removed my dash i left the loom in the car.
    throttle pedal is easy to change, 3x half inch nuts iirc.
