    Default Will calibra V6 (2.5) engine parts go on my GSi (3.2) engine ??????

    Hi All,

    I have the chance of an engine from a calibre V6 – the guy has put a lot of new parts on it to get it running plugs, water pump, thermostat etc. and he has a new timing belt/kit with all the tensioners. It’s a project a neighbour was doing and he needs the space – he is looking for £150 (Apparently the engine had a catastrophic failure internally but he has fitted new gen Vauxhall parts with a view to getting it running again).

    Wanted to ask if the 2.5 calibra (which I’m assuming is the same as the B GSi) bits are a direct swap for the 3.2 as having things like spare coil packs, alternator and all the other bits could save me a lot of dosh if I need to replace things.

    Cheers

    Very much doubt anything will be of any use, even things down to a bolt on alternator may not be the same spec.

    Bear in mind the calibra was based on the cavalier so is very much out dated technology.

    I was a bit dubious but he was confident that a lot of the parts (plugs, water pump, thermostat, timing kit, etc.) were the same (it probably does not have coil packs thinking about it). Although it is a different part number it’s the same thing – that's obviously his take on it but was hoping someone on here could tell me if that was the case or not.
