OK my mate has just picked up a very cheap accident damaged Astra GTE on an F plate.
It is a 2.0 8v. He wants to put this engine in his Cavalier 1.8L H plate which is what 1990 - 1991
How easy is it to wire in the loom from the Astra as the Cavalier is a carb model so Astra engine will require the ECU (obviouisly)
As far as i am aware the engine from the Astra should drop straight in.
Will he need to change the gearbox as well or can he use the existing one?
P.s Watch this space for bits off the Astra
