Sorry if this has been answered before, but I've only just started thinking about this conversion in the last month or so. Will the 6 speeder box out of the calibra mount up to the X20XEV engine. I know it will wit the red top but we never got that engine here in Australia. I know about coverting 4x4 to 2wd on the box etc. Just wanted to know if I'll run in to any snags with this engine.
While I am at it, I'm thinking about turbo charging my X20XEV as well. I've looked into sourcing a smashed calibra over here but they are extremely rare. Not to mention the fact it will be extremely hard to find someone willing to and engine swap on these cars. Any salvagable parts that could be taken from a calibra to help with the turbo conversion ie exhaust manifold etc.
Car in question is a 1996 Holden Astra GSi (or Vauxhall Astra Sport).
