I'm new to your forum so please be gentle! I've been stalking around for a wehile but I've only just registered.
Anyway, I'm currently in the early stages of planning a fairly mad project. I won't bore you with the details (yet) but I'm looking for a good power plant to propel the beast. Essentially my key factors are weight, torque, availability and reliability. As such the 2 litre 16v Vauxhall lump as fitted to the mid 90's Cav/Calibra seems like a good choice. The turbo variant (is this the C20LET?) seems particularly appealing. My first questions for you are:-
What do these weigh (including gearbox)?
How easy are they to get hold of on the 2nd-hand market? And at what sort of price?
What are the gearbox options?
As far as I was aware, the turbo'd Calibra was 4WD. Is this correct? If so, is there a convenient path for converting them back to FWD?
Thanks in advance for your assistance!
