Hi all i know this has been posted over and over but it always ends up with get a bigger engine. THis im gonna do but until then i want to rebuild my engine and eek a little bit more power from it.
Basically next weekend(easter weekend) me and my friend are gonna rebuild the top end of my car. He's a mechanic and i know bugger all, but he's asked me to raise a few questions to the more knowledgable amongst us(oddball maybe!)
1) Can i use the cam from an astra GSi in my engine? (k reg 1.4 8v mpi 82bhp standard) - If not maybe a nova GSI cam, what if any power gains can be expected?
2) Is there anywhere that does slightly over bored head gaskets maybe to raise the capacity slightly?
3) Im gonna get some new injectors, is it worth me getting bigger ones?
Any other help or info would be greatly appreciated. As i say its not a full engine out rebuild, but if you have any advice for when i rebuild my new engine in the autumn(prob c16xe) then let me know.
