ive decided i wanna mk1 astra wiv a 2 litre 16v engine in it. ive got hold of a cav gsi thats rotten and wanna stick the engine in a mk1 astra as soon as i find a good one going cheap.
what sort of problems / things need doing in order for this to happen...
what drive shafts would i use? i assume i'd use the cav F20 g/box?
also would the existing astra petrol tank be fine to use with the cav gsi fuel pump (which i assume i'll need to use)
and would the chassis need seam welding for extra strength due to the increase in power??
i'll be using the cav front discs n callipers and also will find uprated suspension.
is there anything else that i'd need to bear in mind? like engine mounts?? has anyone on here already stuck a valver in a mk1 astra????
