    I think that would be insane for a FWD car.

    Vehicle : Vectra

    Trim : Sri

    Engine : 1.9 cdti 150

    Year : 2004

    it was an astra in the dtm but as already said, you can fit anything in anywhere but you will need to do a lot of work. including custom engine mounts, transmission tunnel, front steering and rear drive from donor then you got to fit it all and wire it up so you will need the whole engine ecu trans etc along with the original wiring loom and any attachments for that. Good luck to whoever tries it.

    if you were spending that kinda cash you would obviously convert it to the vxr8 running gear aswell.
