    Default Urgent engine swap advice.

    Lads, My engine has given up the ghost I think.
    She is blowing out alot of blue smoke so I assume its gone.

    My problem is, is that its a (2004) 1.6 xez16 which isint a very popular engine. Finding one is starting to be a problem.

    There are plenty of 1.8 ones so my question is, is it a straight swap??

    The astra ran that engine, have a look at one of those?

    I'd imagine its possible but it may require ecu swaps and a bit of tech 2 to tell the car what engine is in there.

    Should just be a straight swap, physically, it would be the fuelling that id worried about though.

    you also have to consider the ECu for the vehicle as well as the fuelling issues
