2.0 16valve into an 8v gte
hi aye..wee bit of info needed of you guys..i no i culd do a search for this but im no good at it...
anyway managed to get my hands on a sweet xe.. so this conversion is deffo goin ahead now and i cant wait..
rite so its a g plate mk2 gte 8v at the mo..
engine is from a cavvy gsi..
1. does the xe just drop onto the exsisting mounts
2. does ne one have the wiring diagrams for this conversion
3.bassicaly can i just get as much info as poss about this
i work for vaux so me and few lads are gonna try to get it done in a w/e if all goes to plan, just wantin to get all thats needed so were ready to just crack on and get it done
any help would be much appreciated...cheers
stu, it drops in as if it were an 8v as they share the same blocks so mounting it will be no problem if u use ur existing astra mounts.
The wiring is colour for colour at the end of the loom.
it Connects to your existing gearbox just fine so that isnt a problem.
Where in scotchland r u mate?
if the engine is out of an astra it will be easy
if it is out of a cav or cally the looms meet in a diferent place so it will be best to wire it in behind the digidash
just fitted one into my cabbie was easy enough
cheers for the help here lads...thats good to hear sounds not to hard...im in inverness mate..feel free to add to this anyone..
