    bummer, I guess you already checked out eBay - I saw one for about 370 pounds and 50 pounds delivery then stopped looking - maybe others... if I spot one elsewhere I'll let you know...

    I checked classified ads on several forums - but didn't spot another engine for you

    maybe its more than you wanted to pay but I guess you could make an offer on the eBay one ?

    http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ASTRA-MK4-DTL-...item414d873d3a

    doesn't include pump, starter or alternator and its 50 pounds for 48 hour courier from Belfast.... would have thought there'd be another engine out there for you...

    ---------------

    OK here's another - similarly no turbo, starter, pump alternator, 350 pounds (Shefield)

    http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/VAUXHALL-ASTRA...item19bb761f52

    and this one come with a "crap turbo" 300 pounds (Nottingham)

    Well done mate, both on finding the engine and on the install.

    And thanks also for the update - always good to hear how these things work out.

    They aren't very powerful engines. Not a lot you can do with the MK4 X17DTL other than the obvious full service, maybe have injectors serviced and have intake manifold cleaned. Sent you a PM in reply to yours.
