    Question Z20Let into mk4 astra saloon

    Hi guys, im not on here much but thought this maybe the best place to ask..
    My friend owns a mk4 astra saloon 1.6 8v:


    he has just purchashed the front end of a mk4 astra Gsi from front seats forward (rear end damage so cut off i think)
    He intends on fitting the engine to the saloon (obviously) now just got a few simple questions...
    He has all the shafts/hubs discs pads etc but will be 5 stud, is there away he can keep the 4x100 hubs and buy 4x100 discs to fit the hubs and what would he do with the shafts etc, or is it just more hassle than its worth and just best to bolt the gsi gear on?
    Fueling.. will he need to upgrade the fuel pump? suggestions?
    Any wiring difficulties that we should know about?
    Mounts all the same on the loon? presuming they are but i wouldnt know?
    I only know my novas and not clued up on mk4 astras at all imo lmao
    Any other advice or tips/ good build threads would be muchly appriciated
    Thanks
    Connor

    He's not a fan of the gsi front ends, think hes going to smooth the bumper thats on it now. Or get a sport bumper with fogs and do it on that.

    Corsa C20LET/Astra coupe

    Re: Z20Let into mk4 astra saloon

    I'd stick a smoothed coupe bumper on, really like the look of the saloon, probably cause you don't really see them.

    Engine wise will be no different than any other mk4 as it's only the back 3/4 of the car that's different, fit a pump from a gsi, and I'm sure you can use the hubs you have as long as there the same pattern drive shaft grooves

    Cheers mate, info much appriciated.
    Thought it should be but thought i may aswell ask.

    And yea the saloon he got for FREE off his grandparents as a crappy runaround for uni, he ended up decking it on steels and slowly falling in love with it lmao, as for the bumper theres plenty to choose from so i guess its upto whatever tickles his fancy. heres a pic of the 'loon like 2 days after getting it lmao
