    astra mk v6 conversion

    i am thinkin of gettin rid of my 18 sport engine and swopping it for a v6
    i just have afew ? if any one can help me out.........

    which engine would be best to go for the vectra or omega?
    does any one no of mounts that can be used or any where u can buy mounts that can be used to mount it...
    i no from past experiance that some of the vauxhall conversions u can use original mounts from different models to mount engines in different vauxhalls.... is this the same case here
    any help or advice very welcome many thanks

    You dont what to use the omega engine as there rwd and the sump is the wrong way around plus a couple of more things.

    You want the v6 out of a vecta,cavalier or calibra as they are fwd, although you can use the block and heads from the 3l/3.2l from the omega with the vectra auxiliary ect to make it run (alot of the vectra v6 boys are doing this check vvoc)

    You only need one mount as the rest are on the gearbox, You cant buy them but there very easy to make.

    Heres a thead i started for when i done my v6 conversion so all the info i got/knew was in one place http://www.astraownersclub.com/vb/sh...light=m%2Fport If you have any problems give me a pm as im on the internet nearly all day everyday.
