    engine swop qusetion,cant find a engine topic bit.

    hi all.
    i want to change me engine in my astra,the engines a x16szr.the head gaskets slowly going and the camshaft is worn.

    just wondering what engine i could fit in there, one that will fit without any mods, wouldnt mind a redtop but there very old now and finding a good one is getting harder to find.and will need to change everything.

    a bit more power would be nice.


    cheers jay

    X18XE1 from a Vectra would go well, use your existing gerabox, shafts etc.

    You'd need to make up a Fuel pressure regulator and return setup, I seem to remember a Skoda or something used a separeate reg and return assembly.
