There's an article in this months Total Vauxhall Mag (page 88) , that basically says by using the pistons and conrods from a 1.2 litre engine, and using them in a 1.3 litre engine, you make a 1.4 litre engine.
Has anybody done this?
Is it only the pistons and conrods that need changing?
Would I be able to do this to my 1.3 Astra? If so, do I get the pistons and conrods from a 1.2 Nova, because I wasn't aware that there was a 1.2 Astra?
I am a newbie when it comes to engine mods, so can anyone tell me step by step on how to do it?
How much should i expect the pistons and conrods to cost?
Thanks for any help!
