    Vxr engine,Z20leh, Fix or move on?

    For people who try to convert a vxr z20leh eng into a mk 4 astra

    DON'T DO IT!!!

    Some people say i'm almost there,
    engine in place, runs great, without moving lol

    Got no temp reading, and no one has come up with the answer!
    I recently changed some connecters , as i thaught they might be the fault,
    and was lucky to get the engine going again, after immobiliser probs,

    I'm realy at the end of my tether, so to speak . and are pleading for a way forward

    Any advice would be well appreciated.

    And i don't mind rude remarks lol

    Loads of other problems, and maybe wish i went for a sraight swop for the let, Just to get the car back on the road

    Having said that, i do not give in easily, and having wintered through the project, i am stubborn to get this BRUTE going on the road

    Presently it will, but might well overheat!!! cooling issues,

    I have already tested the car on the road and it stops and goes LOL

    Big difference now tho its not on limp mode since changing a cam sensor,

    I realy darn't try it, the obvious power is incredible,

    BUTT!!! in doing this i will probably BLOW MY JOB in other words i have no cooling as such

    In fear of , me getting angry (unbe- coming of me Ha) and doing something i shouldn't

    I may well scrap my project and move on

    What does anyone think?

    I am not one to give up but techno, has got me realy baffled

    Any help would be realy appreciated , because i'm at the end of my tether,

    Rude or humorous remarks will be accepted aswell

    Kindest Paula

    the joys of the modern engine!!
    id say your best bet would be to speak to gman.....hes done countless transplants of the leh into mk4's and maybe be able to point you in the right direction!

    Personally I'd talk your problem over in detail with Gman, he seems to be the Guru when it comes down to Engine swaps / Problems.
