just a personal query here.
has anyone put one of the older non-ecotek 20XE's into a MK4 Astra. I'm told that it cannot be done by some, and can be done by others and that it can be done but is totally murder by some others!.
everyone is saying that any engine from a MK4 astra will go into any MK4 astra with virtually no work (which in this day and age of putting multiplugs on everything!, is semi-believeable) but that you cannot put anything else in.
so to cut all the BS just so i can say "it can/cant be done because <insert reason here>"
also the fun of owning a MK4 astra with a pumped engine is showing that a 16XE is a little trickier to find than i once hoped lol.
20XE's are everywhere tho <mwa ha ha!>
and another thing my god damn engine management light has went off! little SOB! how am i gonna find out what done it now?, don't suppose the ECU holds onto the fault code once the light has went off does it?
