    Default How easy is it to change the engine of a MK4 Astra

    Have seen a nice mk4 astra which would be a nice little project, it had the 2.2 lump with a chain jump so i wouldnt bother repairing lump. Whats the possibility of just replacing with a run of the mill 1.8/2.0 lump which are more available?

    Nuts and bolts wise it's straight forward ............... You would however need a donor vehicle to pilfer all the bits from

    i.e. Engine mounts
    gearbox
    engine bay wiring loom
    Ecu
    Ignition barrel
    Keys with transponder
    exhaust system
    possibly radpack with aircon rad

    Possibly front drive shafts as the 2.2 is 5 stud and the small block engines are 4 stud
    maybe also the gearstick with linkage

    But it is all just unbolt and bolt on stuff

    Back in a V6 !!!!!!!!!!!! And lovin it !!!
