    Cheers for the welcome guys

    Can I be truly honest and say I don't have a clue what the differace is between the se and yh? Ha, I'm more clued up on older vauxhalls had 3 mk3 astras ( 1 a gsi and 1 had a c25xe in other was a doner) also had a corsa b 1.4 Sri, played with a few mk4 astras and a couple other 1.6 corsa b's

    All I know about the vectra is the engine is playing up ( a mate said piston rings were gone owner says otherwise) but yeh I kinda wanna do an engine conversion anyway so it dosnt bother me but I've been seeing on here it's not as straight forward with all this canBUS and tech2 etc, gonna haveto look into it further and possibly stick a thread up to get some answers

    Also it has a full steinmetz kit I'm not too keen on I'd be looking at ripping the lot off, Facelift conversion on the front plus possibly a full Sri or vxr kit i know there quite similiar I'd probably mix and match the kits so it's not a vxr wannabe

    All just ideas in my head right now as said need too look into the engine further before anything happens, Thanks in advance for any useful information and help

    Sounds like you would be doing a lot of work, would it not be better to buy a working car that you wont have to rip apart?

    Ive been offered it cheap, Could probably make my money back from Selling the kit alone plus selling the 2.2 engine would add abit of funds back, I'm actualy away to get banned later this month so it was going to be a project to make a nice family car when I get license back (got a baby on the way)
    But by the looks of it I'd have to put another 2.2 back in, Engine I want to put in is a 2.5/3.0 but would consider a gsi 3.2 if it would fit? Really need to look into it more as it seems like I'd have to replace the whole loom because of this canBUS stuff
