    Z18XE Engine Swap

    Hi, needing to swap the engine is my Astra coupe. just going for a straight swap, like for like.

    Has anyone came across any troubles with doing this engine?

    Also my loom and ecu will run this engine no prob? as the donor doesnt come with them.

    Thanks

    Z18XE for a Z18XE should be easy enough, the loom etc is all the same.

    Have you considered getting your original engine stripped and checked for condition/refurb? Can't recall what was wrong with it mind...
