    I seriously think it would be better to change the car, with more power yu will need better handling, brakes and probably a new loom... More trouble than its worth most of the time unless you really know what you are doing...

    I think you can swap the 1.6 for a 1.8, straight swap, no wiring mods. (And yes the vectra c came in 1.6 form, just not in the UK)

    Changing the engine in most cases will cause a massive problem getting it to run as the ecus etc will also need changing unless you ran it with a stand alone ecu setup. Also the belts and filters are different in nearly all engines.

    It can be done but would probably be cheaper just to import a car from Europe!
