Hi, just bought a mk3 astra 1.6 si with a knackered engine. I've been offered the engine out of a mk3 Cavalier 2.0 8v SRI, is this engine a straight swap? will it fit using my existing engine mounts, gearbox, driveshafts etc?
If not which parts do I need to change?
If I do need to change the gearbox and drive shafts can I still use my existing hubs and struts as it already has vented disks.
Also can I fit the 2.0 engine using the muti-point injection currently fitted to the Astra rather than the injection system from the Cavalier?
Are the inlet and exhaust manifold interchangeable between the 1.6 and 2.0 engines?
Sorry for all the questions but I'm trying to do this the simplest/ cheapest way I can.
Thanks for your help,
