    Wish me luck boys engine conversion!

    Putting a 2.5 v6 out off a vectra into my astra i know its been done before alot but its new too me bought engine this morning and got mine out this afternoon.

    So now im sat with half my wirning loom infront off me just about to cut it all out and leave the temp sensor plug.

    Then iv got to find a wiring diagram for the Veccy plug to translate it so i can work out what wire wants joining to where.

    Then same for transponder plug!

    Not looking forward to this and think i coud have been abit silly but ill try sort it. Might do a thing in projects.
