    Astra Mk 4 1.6 16v/1.8 16v (5 stud) to Z20LET - from £6645

    Left side should be my engine (X16XEL)
    Above is a price for a conversion from courtenay sport. i looked on ebay for the Z20LET engine and its like £500. obviously its not just a simple fit so what parts now would i need to make this work??
    Its just an idea so i know what i can, and can not do with the engine as conversions seem simpler for big power gains then mods on the engine.

    You'd need an ECU, wiring loom, engine mounts - not sure if the gearboxes are a good fit between these engines, the ratio's will almost certainly be out.
