    z20let into astra van

    due to un forseen circumstances which anger me greatly im tied to my astra van.

    i want a fast car yet need the practicality of a van, i also own a coupe turbo which is mint and owes me very little indeed,

    has anyone done the conversion, ie turbo running gear into a van, i have two 2 poster lifts available so the swapping of engines is not a problem,

    is it a hard thing to do? anyone no of any snags that can occur?

    im hoping its as easy as swapping the bits over????? do you have to change the brake master cylinder/servo to the turbo one?

    if anyone who has done this conversion could pm me some pointers it would be much appreciated

    chris

    the conversion should be easy enough for you with having both cars there. just remove, remember, re-fit.
