    Default Z20LEL into a Z18XER, Will it work

    Hi all,

    I am just wondering if a Z20LEL/LEH will go into a 2007 facelift Vectra SRi? The lump that's in there at the moment is the Z18XER. I know that if you throw enough money at something you can do it so I want to know if it will be easy or not!

    Thanks in advance guys and girls!
    Dave

    you be better fitting the Z20NET or better yet buying another car with it already in as it will be cheaper..

    No, it won't be easy, the CANbus system will make it hard to do, although not impossible.

    You would end up changine loads of the wiring and ecu's, not to mention getting them to talk to each other. Just buy a turbo and swaps the bits you want from yours. then sell it.
    Now I need a turbo to keep up!

    Thanks for the replies, I guess they would be the best options as sat at work bored out of my mind I was thinking about the poxy canbus being an issue! Guess I would have more fun getting an Astra VXR anyway!
