    engine conversion help needed please

    I want to do a 2.0L 16v conversion to replace my blown mk3 1.4mpi cesaro, and I have searched through many threads and have a few questions:

    I am seriously considering using a mk2 gte 20xe engine how much harder is it to wire up everything compared to c20xe from a mk3 gsi?

    What are the major differences between a 20xe and c20xe (other than no cat or lambda is needed)?What is the 'preffered' engine and differences in performance?

    Will I need to get new suspension for my car if I use either engine?

    What about engine mounts with the 20xe?

    Is it easy to hook up my original power steering to the 20xe?

    Im sorry about all the questions, I have only ever changed the headgasket/piston rings and valve stem oil seals etc. so my knowledge is somewhat limited.

    Cheers guys

    Try doing a search, it's a longish list of bits to check, I'm a but sick of typing it all out out.
    Search here, then post what you find, then we'll check that.

    It's a very easy cobnversion, the wiring is next to nothing.
    They're there, in their room.
