    Is this possible?

    Had a mad 5 minutes earlier, and was thinking as this.

    I'm going to be doing a lot of miles in my coupe once I've past the course I'm going to be doing, so is it possible to convert a 2.2 petrol to a 2.2 diesel like they make in Europe.

    If it is what sort of money am I looking at spending on the conversion and is it worth doing?

    No, as the 2.2 diesel engine doesn't fit in a RHD car (component clearance issues).

    Would any Vauxhall diesel engine fit, even if it's a 1.9?

    The 2.0 DTi should, not sure about the newer Mk5 engines as they are Can Bus.

    There is, but the Vectra engine bay is bigger than the Astra.

    Might be easier to buy a cheap diesel for the long runs.

    What about the Vectra B 2.2DTi SRi wouldn't that fit.

    I've got an Astra Sportive Van as well, but as it is standard it doesn't put across the right image to the clients I would be visiting.

    I think it would cost too much to do to the van what I want in order to portray the right image to my clients.

    Don't you get it yet, you can't fit a quart in a pint pot.
