    Red face Astra G engine change?

    Hi, i have a 1999 astra g 1.6 16v sport, the engine is knackered basically
    wanting to know if there is any bigger engine i can fit into it without changing mounts ect, and not wanting to spent huge amounts of money
    since replacing the 1.6 16v is gonna cost about £500-700

    So basically is there any engine that drop straight in?

    Thanks, Tom

    Welcome to AOC

    Providing you have the right wiring looms, the next easiest block would be the X18XE1 1.8 16v engine, as it is a small block like your 1.6 16v so it uses the same mounts
