I'm interested doing a 1.6 16v conversion on my Nova GTE.
Damio B has offered me a 1.6 16v Ecotec motor and ECU from an S reg Vectra would this be a suitable transplant?
I have been told that if the car it came out of used a transponder type key the engine won't work in the Nova!
I have just found out that the motor is a X16XEL.
Can some one give me some help????
Please send any advice via email as I can get to a PC more easly
I have been trying to find the C16XE for a while now and have had no luck here in Liverpool, Loads of 2.0 16v's but no 1.6's (infact where falling over them I know of 2 for around £250-300 each) and evertime I enquire about one in a mag or on this forum It's been sold!
This has been the only one I've found!
I would be happy to hear from anyone with one for sale.
