Dropping a 2.0L 8v Cav engine into a Astra 1.4
How much of a big job is this?
someone has offered me the whole Cav with a mint engine for £40, the Cav is a G Red, Red and still got MOT...
Has anyone done this type of conversion?
Comments etc please people! thanks!
u will need...
mounts (is the doner a mk2/3 coz not sure if mk2 mounts will work)
poss. radiator and fan from larger engined astra
few other bits
1) old engine/box/loom/ecu etc etc out
2) new engine in
3) plumb/wire in
4) sorted (fingers crossed)
whats the mileage of the engine? easier to rebuild/re-con while its out b4 it goes in
ooooo not to mention uprated (2.0) suspension - mk3 cav use same kit as mk3 astra
uprated brakes - go for rear discs and 16v (256mm) front discs
You could aways keep the cav or is it in a state ?
Check insurance costs mate!!
cant get rid of...
my Astra.... really rusty tho.... not gonna bother with it yet!
