    what is the best and easiest engine conversion for a x16xe engine

    hii there i have a mk4 astra sxi 1.6 16v engine code x16xe

    my car is a dedicated audio car and has a system which weighs around 350kg

    this has made my car extremely sluggish and with people in the back its like driving a 1 litre car

    my question is whats the best and easiest engine conversion for this car to get this car to pull the weight better,

    i am asking for advice about the conversion, i would appreicate if people do not say things like get a faster car, as this system would be a massive job to remove and i would loose a lot of sound deadning money

    my dad owns a garage so working should not be a problem however they are not astra specialsts hence the reason for posting here

    probaby either -z20let - sri mk4 turbo engine.
    -z22se - chain driven 2.2 from a mk sri
    may be lucky and find a z22se thats had a supercharger conversion done but if your after a decent engine thats fast your looking at upwards of £1500 just for the engine. im guessing youll do the work which would save on labour.
