recently bought a c20xe that came out of a mk3 astra and its going into my mk2 astra, the engines bolted in but thats where its stopped, every single bit of wiring is dif! iv managed to get the engine loom from a mk2, but theres some dif connections:
the throttle sensor on a mk3 is 6 pin and is 3 pin on a mk2 right? on purshasing the 3 pin one i found it doesnt fit becase of some kind a fuel/water pipe in the way??
next prob theres are three sensors on the back of the engine, idle speed i think, knock sensor and another one directly under the inlet manifold, now there are no connectors on the mk2 loom for them?
theres also a 4 pin plug that comes out from the injector loom that doesnt have a home? at the moment its sitting near the vent valve i think?
right next where the loom plugs in to the car loom at the battery the plugs are different, although all wires match up accept my old loom(1.8 gte) has a red wire where as the 16v loom has a red and white wire?
and to top it all off the offside driveshaft housing is stuck in the box, been trying to get it out all week
can any one shine any kind off hope in the emgine fitting? so far iv bought mk2 manifold, rad, ecu and engine loom. is there anything else im goin to need? please help coz its stressin me big time!!
