I have a Astra Mk1 with a 1.2S. It's a car I bought to use in the winter time and was going to insert a C20XE. The plan was never done. Now I have bought a C25XE and will insert this in the Astra.
I will use the F20 gearbox. I also want to build it with 5-stud brakes and wheels (from cavalier V6). What should I do and what parts should I be using where? I have bought a rear axle from Mk2 with discs rear (260x10mm). What should I do in front, which engine holdes and so? I need help, this is my first engine conversion ever!
Never done this myself, but I know a man who has and I'll pass him the link to this thread so sit tight. The 1.2 model is the worst model to choose when transplanting an 20XE, because all the engine mounts are different (unlike the 1.3 and upwards), but I've never worked on a V6 personally so know little about them.
