    Astra to Calibra

    i bought my own Opel Astra 1.4 16v. now i im bored by the boring speed of the car. Ive had this idea a long time and now i have decided that i want to build a calibra engine in my opel astra coupe. does anyone have some smart things to say? i dont have that much experience with engines but im a quick learner.

    the calibra shares engines in the astra though, infact pretty much all vauxhalls share engines

    Im pretty unsure what your asking though?? Plenty of people put different engines in, v6's in corsa's, redtops, etc

    the engine i'm on about should be in the astra mk4 GSI (OPC)

    or try and find a mk3 GSI engine (c20let) theres plenty of them abroad.
