    Can you convert an astra mk4 1.7 dti into a 2.0 tdi?

    Im looking for a mk4 asrta diesel to buy then tune. I understand you can get the 1.7 dti to around 140 bhp but after that it gets tricky and i wnt more bhp realy, so can you drop a bigger deisel engine into the mk4 shell? I think the vectras have a 2.0 or 2.2 tdi lump in them. Would that fit in easy enough or would it be a pain? Cheers

    ive seen one on ebay that had had the 2.0dti put in, they had to change everything, turn it from 4 stud to five stud wheels, brakes the lot had to be done (discs on the rear) suspension has to be done too. the 1.7 drive shafts will not fit the 2.0 gearbox.
