    Probably work out much cheaper and get better performance if you fitted a z20leh IMO.

    If the V6 goes in would the Vectra GSi engine go in too?
    The truth is always the truth even if you haven't realised it yet...

    That must be one hell of tight squeeze to get that in there.

    I had to sort a Zaffy out for my mate as he cocked somert up and there was alot of room to get round and that was only a 1.8.

    Fair play to you mate if tackle this one

    Would be intrested to see a few progress pics with the lump going in

    You need to calm down bud - pretty OTT, was only his opinion and I'd have said the same TBH..

    Yes a 2.5 will fit but you'd need a fly by wire TB off a 2.6 amongst a whole load more stuff lol, wouldn't be easy at all - in all fairness you may as well fit a 2.6, 3.0 or 3.2 as they are identical blocks -I'd fit the 3.2 personally as the torque will come in really handy for the heavy Zafira - then get some NOS on it
