    Dude, give it more than an hour

    Search the forums and galleries - there's quite a lot of vans on here that have been modified to a high standard.

    Welcome to the club

    Obviously they are completely different vehicles. The Astra van is so easy to modify. If you drop a petrol turbo engine in one (Zlet or Zleh) then you can have some fun surprising people.

    So getting a Sportive van is a good idea? easy to get different bumpers? and cheap? i really like them, and they are also very cheap and good on juice right?

    sometimes the diesel pumps on them break and cost a fortune to fix but you'll be putting a z20leX in though

    Dropping from a 2.7 v6 to a diesel or smaller engined petrol van will be a great change in performance, but if your looking to get a more recent MK5 (maybe even a VXR) which im assuming you are? then they're pretty easy to mod along with a quick Zlet engine swap in the non turbo models and your sorted.
