Iv got a Mk 2 Astra 1.2 but the engines nearly dead, but the chassis is in pretty gwd nick. its a 3 door and bodywork needs just a bit of work.
question is? is the engine the same as the nova? if so will the 1.4 or 1.6 engine out of a nova drop into the shell?

Theres a very good chance that it is.
Don't know about engine mounts and exhasit/downpipes though.
Well a mate of mine (Davcohen) is pretty sure hes fitting the Nova GSi 1.6 engine into his Mrk2 1.4 Astra, so i dont see why you cant do the same!
As said above, you might need to mix and match nova/astra parts to get the exhaust system right, but other than that i think it would work.
Something to think about though, its gonna be more hassle getting a fuel injected engine and sticking that in, coz u would need to swap the fuel tank, fuel lines and some other bits.
My advice is go for a carb engine, and stick some funky twin webers on it
I've got a Nova GSi 1.6 8v engine for sale... and gearbox.
in a couple of week krbenson19 ill be swappin my engine out for a 1.6i as BigKingy has told u..... so kind of him
anyways my standard 1.4 carb engine is in pretty good nick has had all its gaskets changed and been well looked after (well be ame anyways)
so if ur interested i aint lookin for much just some money to go towards my engine swap
