I'm considering buying a mk5 astra 1.6 twinport that is going cheap because it has had a small fire in the engine. I was just wondering if anyone could help. I have located a full new engine from the same model and engine.
I was just curious to know how difficult it is to do a complete engine swap, if it did actually need a full new engine. Also, is it a case of simply replacing the engine, or do other parts, such as the ECU need changing too?
Kind regards and thanks in advance.
(above should hopefully be a pic of the engine)
